Can't say I blame them for that, in hindsight.

Windows 7 was old as fuck and stopped receiving any improvements long ago, the fact that MS pushed people to upgrade to 10 was mostly an issue for people who refused to move on from an aging OS which lacked even basic things 10 has, such as actually good high DPI scaling, hoping that they could continue supporting it forever, wishful thinking at its peak. Ignoring the less scrupulous things they did though, such as making the upgrade setup start even when the user pressed on X to close it, that was extremely abusive.

I, too, had dreamed of them supporting XP forever once, since that was my favorite OS, but that wasn't going to happen, heh.

.... im still on Windows 7 here.

At work we have W10 and Server 2012 R2 though, but one thing W10 is being worse at is the lock screen. All those nice pictures it shows are from the internet. But that's not the problem. The actual problem is that at around the same position as where the logon bar appears to login, there is also a small search monocle with a search bar. If you click on there with your mouse button (Instead of using space) it will, after logging in, open up an Internet Explorer tab with a Bing search on it.

I have had calls this week of surgeons who didn't know this. And before you say [i]''Everyone is ought to know this''[\i] they are surgeons after all. Computers are merely visual aides than tools to them, so i can't expect that they know this.

And frankly, i can agree with their complaint - Its quite moronic that this searchbar is there at roughly the same height as the logon screen.

Ofcourse, doing anything else but clicking with the mouse in that search bar will bring you straight to the logon screen, but hey...

I don't even know what you're talking about. There isn't any search bar here.

I can tell you the answer in a PM because its really not worth taking that even more offtopic than needed. :)
