If I upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10, will I keep all my programs, folders, and files? I`m not a rocket expert when it comes to software. I bought this used computer about 10 years ago from a sign company. It runs Windows 7, which has been used in their business. What`s next? I am 79 years old and the money is extremely tight. I was told that I had to upgrade to Windows 10, have all my personal folders on an old computer running XP, and have no connection to the outside world.
