    the main difference I notice between win7 and win10. Why?


    I'm a new Win10 user and have it tweaked to look and operate like Win7. All is good. When I click on my programs in the Links Toolbar on the taskbar, the programs are loading more quickly than they used to in Win7. Same hardware, same 1/4 full samsung nvme pci-e ssd. Anyone got an idea as to why this is? I thought it might have to do with smarter caching and maybe it is, but it happens even after a restart. I don't use hibernate.

    :)

    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??

    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
