Subject For Information: Reported Windows 10 problems
Date Tue, 04 Aug 2015 07:51:41 GMT
I should stat by saying that I do not now use Windows other than an old version for access
to archived files in old formats, so what I write below is based on a quick analysis from
memory of recent Forum postings.

There are a number of reported Windows 10 problems, some of which are being laid at the door
of OpenOffice although they may be generic W10 upgrade difficulties and/or user problems with
that upgrade.

I list below some of the recent threads.

The most common problem is that the W10 upgrade leaves all OpenOffice files (and, from other
reports, other application files) in read-only form;  this read-only may possibly be removable
but there is no clear 100% effective path to do this (from the reports below)

Other reports are of inability to open OO applications - Calc apparently being the most commonly
