Microsoft Windows 10 Online Resources

Microsoft released the latest version of its flagship OS, Windows 10, on July 29th, 2015. Many of you have likely seen a small Microsoft symbol floating in your taskbar, and some may have even clicked on it and been prompted to upgrade to Windows 10 for free.

For faculty and staff University owned machines please discuss upgrading with your IT Professional.

While this new OS hosts many new upgrades and features, the Division of IT strongly discourages users from upgrading to Windows 10 until compatibility testing for MU applications have been completed. If you do upgrade, you may encounter problems with enterprise applications such as Blackboard, myZou, myHR and others.

For those who have purchased computers with Windows 10 already installed, here are some recommended online training resources to assist you through the transition to the new operating system:
