Windows 10

Information Technology Services (ITS) began installing Windows 10 on college-owned computers in February 2017. It is currently the recommended and supported operating system.

As with all operating system upgrades, there are potential issues of compatibility with applications and services. If you have a question as to whether an application you are using will be compatible with Windows 10, please check with the Helpdesk or with the application vendor.

Current Known Issues & Areas of Concern

  • Drivers may not be available for older devices, such as printers, scanners, cameras, video cards, and mobile devices. Without drivers, the hardware you connect to your computer won't work properly.
  • Windows 10 Enterprise version is necessary for security and management features required for college computers. If you have a college-owned computer running Windows 7 that you would like to upgrade to Windows 10, please contact the Helpdesk so we can ensure you obtain the proper version.
  • SMB1 is no longer installed as part of Windows 10 OS. This effects connections to Midd-Unix.
