    Question about Control Panel Windows 10 Pro


    Hi All,
    I was having a few bugs after upgrading from Windows 8.1 Pro so I decided to do a clean install from the USB drive.
    All went well and all bugs I had seems fixed now. However I did notice when I opened the Control Panel there was a different option that I didn't see when I upgraded.
    It is in Control Panel> System & Security> called Backup & Restore (Windows 7)
    Why did this show up there when I have a registered version of Windows 8.1? I reserved from Windows 8.1.
    Is this showing up on all clean installs of Windows 10 Pro?

    cheers

    :)

    Turn off auto-updates in Windows 10

    I dont know about Win 10 Pro but in my Win 10 Home I stopped and disable "Windows Update" service in Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Administrative Tools > Service

    SERVICES FOR NFS

    Based on your reply I believe you are referring to a game called Need for Speed. I am asking about the software package called
    Network File System which is a system that lets windows users access Unix servers to read and write data.

    In control panel / programs and features / Turn Windows features on or off /

    There is should be an option for Services for NFS and under it should be Administrative tools and Client for NFS.

    I have been told that this feature is available in WIndows 10 Pro but I would like to verify that with someone who is actually running Win 10 Pro. My hunch is that it is not there and is only available in Windows 10 Enterprise.

    If you are running Windows 10 Pro could you verify my question by going into the control panel and checking.

    Thanks,

    Ron

    I also have Backup & Restore (Windows 7) in the Control Panel, but haven't used it. Macrium Reflect is the imaging software I use.

    From a W8.1 upgrade here's the control panel

    So it appears whatever system you upgraded from. Note the W8.1 upgrade never had a W7 system on it ever.

    To clarify, the Control Panel entry is not used to restore your system to Windows 7/8/8.1, merely to restore any files you may have backed up using any of these operating systems. In order to restore your system back to the operating system you upgraded from (if in fact you did upgrade and not a clean install) use Settings as shown here.

    I guess I totally forgot about what the control panel looked like in earlier versions of Windows. (a sign of age creeping up here *Smile ) Thanks for the replies.
