I feel your pain.  The Win7 learning curve was so steep, I ended up 
switching to GNU/Linux!

I use Win10 away from home, and find it far less unpleasant than Win7, 
though I still would have preferred the straightforwardness of WinXP. 
Unfortunately(?), I boot up Win7 at home so seldom that it hasn't had a 
chance to download Win10.
