  3. Any reason to "up"grade? Not seeing any.

  4. Any reason to "up"grade? Not seeing any.

    Any reason why? It would be because it's a free copy of an OS and once you tweak windows 10 to your own liken you might just like it like I do .... Thanks you Microsoft for my free copy . And all those that don't like it? Nobody is forcing you to use it, go find what does make you happy . Microsoft will always have their die hard Windows users and those that don't like MS ... You can't make everyone happy
  5. Themes background changing often

    I'm just using the ones that you can add under Theme Setting , Get more themes online . The background would randomly change often driving me nuts . So I search around for an answer and found what I listed . Yes, if you use just picture like you say it wouldn't change but once you load 3rd party ones you need to place it on Slideshow . I don't get MS at times . There was nothing wrong in how it was settled up before . Its like the old saying, if it ain't broken, don't touch it Also you can right click the desktop and select personalize
  6. Themes background changing often

    So this is the path then .... Start , Settings , Personalization , Background ( Slideshow ) , Choose an albums for your Slideshow , Change picture every >>> ?
  7. Hi ... Does anyone know how to stop the background theme from changing randomly . Every time I close a program or even the browser the theme gets changed . It would be nice if it wouldn't change often . Any idea what to do ? Thanks

  11. What's the deal with SP3 ?

    I doubt if its going to make that much of a difference in speed . Also I had this xp since Oct 2001 and I have never had any problems with stability
  12. What's the deal with SP3 ?

    I don't understand what the big rush to have this service pack . Isn't your computer working good ? Even still if you update to the latest on Microsoft update site you should have everything any ways , maybe beside a couple of things not yet there . Ok ! Big deal about got to slipstream it . The most important thing is your computer is working ok now . You will get to slipstream it sooner or later . So just have patience
