    Default If you LOVE You Tube videos, DO NOT update to Windows 10!

    Maybe this has already been discussed, I'm more OUT than IN these days...

    BUT, I was offered a FREE Windows 10 update, and blindly accepted the offer.

    Turn out the upgrades are mainly for gamers. Yup, I am fully X-Box loaded, but can't watch a friggin' you tube video.

    Ridiculous! Waiting for the kinks to work out.

    NEVER again!

    I've had Windows 10 for a while now, I'm not a gamer. I can watch You Tube...I actually like Windows 10.

    I have to agree with Shirley. I upgraded to Windows 10 - from Windows 8.1 - and the only issue I have is that they messed with my solitaire games. But, google is my friend.

    I can watch you-tube, movies sent to me, etc. No issues.

    So sorry you are having some problems. Want me to call Bill for you?

    Same here, I have been using 10 for awhile now and really like it. All the computers in our house have been updated without problems. Recheck your settings and give it another try. You tube should run normally.

    They messed up my Spider Solitaire, but I figured it out. New version, but I've adapted. Liked the old one better...
    (So I haven't beaten my BEST score since when? Just how fast is my mind is deteriorating?...)
    I can shop at Amazon, check the weather, look at FB, and post a thread to you guys.
    WHY can't I watch a video on You Tube?
    And WHY don't you all, have a problem? Did you have to go thru extra steps?
    The steps I saw to rectify the problem involved me 'signing' what's left of my privacy away...
    Like we have any privacy anymore, lol!

    I also have had Windows 10 for awhile, only on this computer. It took me awhile to figure out things, but so far its ok. I am a gamer ( not Xbox but mmorpg's ). ( yep, I'm a quilting - gamer - grandma blows my children's minds) and I can't really see how its helped my gaming.

    I have no plans to upgrade to 10. Windows 7 works just fine for me. I am not a gamer.
