We had a question from a reader named Sandy about upgrading to Windows 10. She writes: Would it be a good idea to reinstall Windows 7 before upgrading to Windows 10?

windows 7

Sandy, I really can’t see any reason why you’d take the time and trouble to do that unless you’re having some type of issue that makes Windows 7 unusable for you right now.

Windows 10 will be overwriting your operating system when you download it.
