The more I use 10, the less I see wrong about it. However I did install Classic Shell on both 8 and 10.

As to drivers, nothing new here. Drivers are put on CD, USB and such as needed for the new PC. That is, that's how it's been done for decades.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
