I've seen ads saying smoething like W7 Pro with W10 license (or like that)
So would that be 7 or 10 for operation.

I know the computer is the culprit because......

https://forums.collectors.com/messagevi ... erthread=y

OR... should I tell Microsoft to shove it and go Apple?
AND if I did that does it come with any spreadsheet and dB Elmo or ...oh hell, I can't relearn how to BUILD a custom database .

So guess it's a new damn computer.

And I.....HEAR.... I don't want Windows 10.

help:

Likely, the way you worded it, it comes with 7 and YOU can upgrade it for free to 10 if you want.

Back up, wipe the system back to the original, and then start over.....it will work ;)

Reluctant to do a lot of stuff for ONLY the Gary Adkins site.
Other stuff works.
His site is glitchy on the cheapy android tablet as are a lot of the newer "improved" coin sites that think many many clicks are good to get to simple inventory lists.
Legend also has "gotten cute" with more steps just to see the widgets. :twisted:

I decided when I move on from this computer (put together myself, with good help from K6!), I will go to Apple. Hopefully, it won't be for a few more years.

My wife ditched her PC and just uses iPhone and iPad now. I won't be able to do that, but a sub-$2000 Mac is in my future.
