Question: Does Family Law Software work with Windows 10?

Answer: Yes.

We have run Windows 10 here with Family Law Software on several computers, and it has worked successfully with no problems.

We have not had reports from subscribers of problems with Windows 10.

So all indications are that Family Law Software will work smoothly with Windows 10.

If you have installed Windows 10 and are having problems

For a month after you upgrade to Windows 10, you’ll be able to go back to your previous version of Windows from Settings > Update & security > Recovery. This will keep your personal files, but it will remove apps and drivers installed after the upgrade, as well as any changes you made to settings. To go back, you'll need to:

  • Keep everything in the windows.old and $windows.~bt folders after the upgrade.

  • Make sure not to add, remove, or move any user accounts after the upgrade.

  • Know the password you used to sign in to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 (if you used one).

  • Have the USB drive you used to upgrade to Windows 10 (if you used one).

If you go back to Windows 8.1, some apps that came with Windows, like Mail and People, might not work any more. To fix them, reinstall them from the Store.

If Go Back isn't available, check to see if you can restore your PC to factory settings. This will reinstall the version of Windows that came with your PC and remove personal files, apps and drivers you installed, and any changes you made to settings. Go to Settings > Update & Security > Recovery > Reset this PC > Get started and look for Restore factory settings.

If you created a recovery drive before upgrading to Windows 10, you might be able to use it to restore factory settings (even if the option isn’t showing up in Settings). For more info, search Google for "Windows Recovery Drive."

If you have the original Windows CD and a product key for your previous version of Windows, you can use them to go back. Search Google for: Use Installation Media to Reinstall Windows.
