As with many new operating system releases, there are initially a number of incompatibilities with regularly used applications and this is also the case with Windows 10. The Office of Information Technology (OIT) recommends upgrading as most of the early incompatibilities have been addressed. Please note that there may still be applications that have not released updates for Windows 10, and installation issues may occur at any time in the life of this operating system.
The previous update to Windows OS, Windows 8, changed the look and operation of the desktop experience with the Metro interface. The Metro interface is still available in Windows 10; however, Windows 10 introduces a hybrid start menu combining the Metro interface and the traditional start menu from Windows 7 and earlier. This is the most dramatic change in the operating system.
Testing of Windows 10 conducted by OIT has found no major incompatibilities with campus services; however, some may still exist. OIT will continue to test compatibility with campus services and supported software and will report the results in the information below. Prior to upgrading from Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 you can run a compatibility test for your current system by:
|Firefox||Mozilla Firefox has released a version of their browser compatible with Windows 10. For more information please visit Mozilla's support page.|
|Chrome||Chrome is compatible with Windows 10 but there are some bugs reported.|
Microsoft is phasing out Internet Explorer and pushing their new browser Edge that specifically is developed to integrate with Windows 10.
We'll post more information about the compatibility of our services as we learn about it.
