Will My Programs Work in Windows 10?

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

Love your weekly advice . I am 67 and my win. 8.1 computer is always asking me to download win 10 for free. My questions are: will classic shell start menu still work, will libre office work and do I also need to re-install my avg anti virus.

Thank you again for your wonderful advice

Dear Tom,

If all goes well with your Windows 10 upgrade, you will still be able to use Classic Shell, Libre Office and AVG.

You might need to re-install Classic Shell, but it should automatically prompt you.

Before you upgrade to Windows 10, be sure to backup your data like pictures, documents and music. While most upgrades do go smoothly, it is always best to have a backup plan just in case.
