ITS, the campus IT group, has released the Windows 10 desktop operating system software. Windows 10 is very similar to Windows 8 but adds back the Start Menu, which was removed by Microsoft after Windows 7. ICT will begin upgrading the public computers and computer labs in the Maxwell School to Windows 10 between Monday, December 21st and Tuesday December 22nd. ICT will make computers available for students who need them while their area is being upgraded. The registrar classrooms will remain untouched until Learning Environments begins upgrading the classrooms on campus to Windows 10 sometime next year.
While the formal migration to Windows 10 for Maxwell faculty and staff will begin after the spring semester, anyone who wishes to have their computer upgraded earlier can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will set up a time starting in January. Upgrading to Windows 10 is an easy process and training will be provided.
