    curious about two performance differences between Win10 and Win7


    I just upgraded from Win7 to a clean install of Win10. Hardware specs are fairly high performance, using a clean boot with no startup programs for now, systems are identical other than the OS. Here are the two things that I notice that are different.

    On Win10 my programs load a tad bit quicker. What takes a second on Win7 to load takes maybe 0.5 seconds to load on Win10. This is good and I don't really need to understand why but if anyone knows why, go ahead and weigh in.

    On Win10 the keyboard-repeat does not traverse as smoothly as on Win7. I use the fastest repeat rate for the keyboard. Much of my work is in editing text documents and working on spreadsheets. In each case its common for me to hold down an arrow key as the cursor screams across the page. On Win7 this happened super quickly and super smoothly. But on Win10 it stutters just a bit. To see what I mean, open up notepad. Set your keyboard repeat rate on the maximum. Press and hold the A key. You will then see 50 consecutive As in perhaps three seconds. On Win7 this happened perfectly smoothly. On Win10, I get a slight stutter, a brief pause every three quarters of a second or so. Its subtle, most people might not even not notice it. Its not a deal breaker but I would like to figure out why it is happening. If there is an easy way I could run a trace of whats happening in those few seconds on each system I would do it. Thanks.

    :)

    homegroup win10 not recognize printer & scanner on win7 computer

    Thank you so much for the quick response to my problem.

    my devices I am trying to access on the win7 computer are:

    Printer: Stylus Photo R200

    Scanner: Perfection 4180

    I had these originally on my computer B4 win10 install. After the install they did not work. That is why I connected to my other win7 computer. The win7 is within my Homegroup and when I access thru win10 I get access to docs, picts, videos, etc but not
    the above devices. Reversing this, accessing my win10 computer from the win7, I get the icon my Epson Workforce 310 printer which I set up on the win7 computer for printing as well as the above devices.

    Went to Epson website on the win7 comp & found the recommended driver for win7. Did the same on the win10 comp to find drivers for win10. (Did not update these drivers yet.) Apparently they have 2 different drivers dependent on WIN version. Both drivers
    are up to date.

    Is it possible the drivers are not compatible and this accounts for these devices not showing up on the win10 machine? Don't know if win10 driver will work on win7. I may try to set these up on win10 machine. If work can upgrade win7 to win10.

    I tried steps 1 & 2. Step 3, I know I have devices set to show on the network.

    Any other suggestions/comments??

    Curious about my Win7 key and moving to Win10.

    Yes, that is the plan with the new build, but as I am also using that same key on my old build, to give to my family to use, would that still be possible?

    For example: I reinstall Win7 on my old PC. The activation goes through, all is well.

    Next, I install Win10 on my new build, and when it asks for a key, I provide my the key I used for Win7.

    Will it go through as well? And if it does, will the other PC, running Win7, encounter issues because I used the same key on my new PC for Win10?

    curious about two performance differences between Win10 and Win7

    Sharing drives with Win7 & Win10

    My system is running both Win7 & Win10 on different SSD. There are 2 more HDDs of 2TB each in the PC. After using them in Win10 & then switch back to Win7 the 2HDDs will be scanned at bootup over & over again. Those data created in Win10 are not accessible
    in Win7.

    Then I got an USB flashdrive 64Gb created in Win7 & then used in Win10. After that it can't be accessed in Win7 anymore. Message say to format the drive before usage
