    Two days after I read this, my husband accidentally started the Win10 download on our laptop. Even tho we’re both tech challenged (and he resists change of any kind), I calmly told him not to worry because I knew what to do! We currently have 8.1 with classic shell start menu activated and switching back was easy peasy.
    Thanks so much for sharing this info and the zdnet link.
