That's a major bummer.   Hope you get {or got} a new computer for Christmas to replace the one that picked the worst of times to go up in smoke.

My computer died a few days before Dec 1 and its a long road to recovery. Even though I was able to get everything back with recovery software its not perfect and added hours to create a sequence. 

I am still recovering and after New Years will take 30 days to get my files back in order.

Condolences

No problem. Been using W10 since it came out in 2015.

 If you are  used to W7, you can make 10 look just about identical. Much better than W8.

W10 has been a learning curve for me. Completely different than work and my home PC’s How do you make it look like 7?

Just work through all the settings for display, taskbar, explorer options, touch if you don't use it. Quick launch can be put back, and so on. Lots of little things, depending on what you're used to and prefer. Google can help with a lot of it. I can help with specifics but need to have the box in front of me.

Start by doing a google search for classic shell.  At least that gets a "better" start menu.

Nice, glad that’s all it took.

With all Of the rain forecasted I now wish I started taking up

the controllers two days ago while it was 70 outside.

We lack only a few more inches of rain before January to be the rainiest year since they started taking statistics. All since Halloween.

All RGB work and faces but the mega and mini trees down due to flooding

That's great!  Having to replace a PSU is much better than dealing with a hard drive crash!

Took all controllers up today the only dry day for 7 more days.

So for me the Christmas/ New Year Show is over.

Front yard flooded so all props and lights remain but all cables and controllers packed away. And my matrix on wheels.

Hopefully everyone’s weather is and has been better than ours.
