I am writing this from my new laptop! The old one isn’t quite dead yet, but it has been on its last legs for the past few years (obviously it had more legs than I thought, though). I’m now trying to get to grips with Windows 11 – which is making me look very fondly upon Windows 10, which is not something I thought I’d ever be saying.
I’ve still to transfer over all my files but that shouldn’t take long as most of them are already backed up on an external hard drive. Then I just have to do what I can to personalise it to suit me, probably a difficult task as with each successive version Windows seems to remove several settings for personalisation. I’m currently stewing over the inability to ungroup icons on the taskbar…
March round up
Enid Blyton’s Holiday Stories then and now, part 3
The Red Story Book is the second of Methuen’s Colour Story Books, the other colours being blue, green and yellow. It has 24 stories, all collected from Sunny Stories for Little Folk, and as a bonus illustrations by Eileen Soper. It’s a shame that there are not all that many illustrations but any Soper ones are always welcome.
You are amazing, Fiona! I’m still using Windows 7. I’m too afraid to update to Windows 11, because several friends from Germany couldn’t find lots of their stored photos after they’ve changed to Windows 11. I have more than 20.000 photos on my computer and am not willing to give up any part of them.
I’m not loving it but I’d definitely not have kept Windows 7 if I had it, as it’s no longer supported. We still have it at work as we have been waiting an eternity for an upgrade and it’s slow and awful – plus our web browsers etc keep reminding us that they are no longer designed to run in windows 7 and I wouldn’t be surprised if they stopped working altogether soon.
I might change as soon as I’ll figure out a secure way to keep ALL of my photos in Windows 11.
