Hi, my wife is struggling to use her Win 10 laptop, especially now that she needs to do Zoom meetings. She can whizz around her iPad and iPhone better than me, though I like my Mac Book Pro. I've had Windows laptops for years, but the Win 10 interface has me befuddled. There was a Classic Shell app to restore the old Win 7 look, but it hasn't been updated for years. (Dear me, I'm beginning to sound like a Luddite). Any thoughts?

It isn't that much different from Windows 7 in reality.  There is a start menu just like previous versions where you can find your installed programs.  It is laid a little differently but you should be able to scroll through it.

You can pin programs to your taskbar just like you have been able to do since Vista.

You can have desktop shortcuts to your programs just like you have been able to do since Windows 95.

The file manage isn't very different at all to the Windows 7 version.

The Windows settings are moving to the settings app which is new but just have a good look at it if you need to tweak a settings and you should be able to work it out.

Just learn the new interface as it will be easier in the long run.
