Customer Question
One of the automatic...

One of the automatic updates changed my desktop from Windows 7 style to the new Windows 10 style and I do not like it.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model of your laptop?

Can I change the desktop back to windows 7 style?

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your laptop? Have you installed any updates recently?

This is my desktop computer and it ran the automatic updates yesterday and I got the new style desktop which I do not like, can I change the desktop to look like the windows 7 desktop?

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

I do not know what else to ask

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
