We have put together a Windows 10 Preparedness Checklist for your convenience. This checklist will help you make sure you are ready for your Windows 10 upgrade. Just visit the Windows 10 website and click on “Windows 10 Checklist” in the menu.
Also, we are looking for those who wish to be an early adopter for Windows 10. If you want to be upgraded prior to Summer, just let Gonzalo Correa know your node name.
As you may have seen in the latest IT@Sam Newsletter, Windows workstations are scheduled for upgrade to Windows 10. This upgrade will begin after the conclusion of the Spring 2017 semester and should complete by the start of the Fall 2017 semester.
The look and feel for Windows 10 will be different, but most functionality will already be familiar to you. In addition to the change in the look and feel, there will be improvements including enhanced security, a new web browser, faster login times, and less disruptive future upgrades. Additional information and a timeline of updates will be included in upcoming IT@Sam Newsletters as well as online at www.shsu.edu/windows10.
Please take this upgrade into consideration as you and your department(s) make book adoptions and software requests for the next academic year.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Service Desk (ServiceDesk@shsu.edu or 936.294.1950).
