    Cut and Paste Speed Difference Between Windows 7 and Windows 10


    Hi all,


    On my domain, we've started the process of upgrading our PC's to Windows 10. However, we're starting to notice an issue which is causing serious delays to our users working days.


    On Windows 7, if I cut files from \\servername\workingfolder\output and paste them to \\servername\workingfolder\transferred, it's instant. No progress bars, no "calculating" or "discovering items" screens, nothing.


    However, if I do the exact same thing on a Windows 10 machine, it takes a while. A long while. I've been testing this on my own laptop (Also Windows 10) and I get the same. Moving 4 folders with a total of 1,000 files is producing the "Discovering items" and "Calculating" progress screens, whereas we consistently just get it moved instantly on a Windows 7 machine.


    This, to me, rules out any issues on the server, as it works from a Windows 7 desktop. However, I need to get this working instantly on a Windows 10 machine. What settings do I need to change to match this up to how Windows 7 works with this process?


    Just for completeness:


    The two PC's I've been testing with are both the same model (HP Pro 400 G2.5 SFF), with same specification (quad-core i5, 8GB, 240GB SSD, Gig NIC)

    Both PC's are connected to the same Cisco switch with 1Gb. I've even swapped the network ports between the two. (This wouldn't explain why I get it on my machine in a completely different part of the building though).

    When the users machine was Windows 7, she could do the file moves instantly. It's only since rebuilding on Windows 10 that we've seen the issue.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 upgrade problem, no input accepted

    I really hate having to come here and ask for help, but I really am stumped. It hurts my geek pride. I have a PC with fairly modern hardware in it. It has a p8p67 pro in it. I have tried upgrading windows 10 on it twice now. Both times I have had the same result.

    After windows finishes upgrading it goes to the log in/set up screen. I can't do anything. No keyboard or mouse input is accepted.

    I will list some, or hopefully all, of the troubleshooting steps I have tried:
    • Move keyboard and mouse to different USB ports.
    • Try different keyboard or mouse.
    • Restart computer, repeatedly.
    • Google for related issues.
    • Update Bios, because why not.
    • Create boot media and revert to windows 7.
    The windows 10 system restore boot media works fine with keyboard and mouse. All USB ports work in windows 7. I don't know what is wrong. I suspect that windows 10 is lacking a driver of some sort, but since the computer accepts no input I have no way of checking for which driver let alone installing it.

    Please help me figure this out. If I have to revert back to windows 7 again, I am not going to get it upgraded to windows 10. Thank you in advanced.

    Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.
