  1. W10 versus W8.1


    Hi,

    I bought a W8.1 license in 2015 and after a few weeks Microsoft asked me if I wanted to switch to W10 at no cost and I accepted. I've been using the W10 ever since. Now if I want to reinstall W that will be reinstalled W8.1 or W10. I specify that I have a W8.1 license but I think that Microsoft would have highlighted my transition to W10, although then it did not send me another license number and yes, I want to keep W10. Thanhs a lot!

    :)

    RAM usage W8.1 versus W10

    I have compared the RAM usage of 8.1 and 10 in exactly the same (virtual) system. They are quasi identical.
