    I have a question for the hivemind -

    If I completely REMOVE (not just hide...) the Windows 10 tray icon / program, can I still upgrade to Windows 10 later when they are on...ohhhh...about update 8 or 9 for it?

    I WILL want to go to W10 someday, just not right now, or probably in the next month or so....

    I used W10 for 5 days but I had SOOO many issues I went back to 8.1 - battery substantially less, Fan on all the time / hot with 1 browser tab open and nothing else going on / Cortana running in BG but only actually working 1/4 times...

    So, yeah. Definitely shows promise, but not for a while...

    If anyone has an good answer I'd love to hear it. The program seems to be occasionally sucking down a bunch of bandwidth and CPU occasionally. I'd love to get rid of it...

    Temporarily. :)

    Thank you for the answer!

    ..and a quick follow up. If I do remove it, will I have to...wait in line...or whatever the protocol is to "re-authorize" or "re-get" Windows 10?
