Information Technology Services (ITS) began installing Windows 10 on college-owned computers in February 2017.
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 some 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. (Upgrading the Windows 7 Pro OS installed on college computers would provide Windows 10 Pro, not Enterprise.)
