  2. Documents are gone after Windows 10 update?

    I was forced to update my computer from windows 8 to windows 10, something I did not wish to do. After my computer turned back on, I saw my documents had been moved to the windows.old file. I didn't want my files there, so I moved the documents to the new
    documents tab. However, I guess windows wasn't finished updating, and when the computer rebooted again, all of my files were gone. They are not in the new documents tab and they are not in the windows.old documents window. Please tell me there's some way to
    get my documents back!

    Thanks

  3. Why did the startup window get cleared?

    I didn't missed any step, the list was gone and gone , even after using lot of programs the programs were not listed in that list.
