NO! Not at all! But, using my computer was beyond me some days. Then, I got the new computer and finally got my free copy of Windows 10. Suddenly, I can do things I knew were possible but had never done. Some things I could do had become impossible.
Discombobulated, I just figured I must have forgotten how to accomplish what I wanted.
When Charlie refreshed my memory, I still could not do what I wanted. Let me give you an example. I rarely delete emails, thinking I will just do it later. "Later" never comes. So, I have ended up with 100K emails and warnings about my email load.
When I would go down the list and check junk emails to delete, sometimes I would check an email I really wanted to read. I thought I could just uncheck, but no, that option was not impossible. At this point, I was using Win 10, so I thought things had changed from Win 7.
Friday, I really wanted to delete masses of emails from one site to which I subscribe. I open about one of every 50 emails since different computer problems are not things I want to read from this computer help site. I searched for the site on my email site and came up with 16,000 emails from this one site. I checked the box at the top and a check showed up beside each email. Then, I clicked "delete" and spent five minutes waiting for the operation to finish. Easy Peasey.
Do you realize how long it would take for 16,000 emails to be deleted at ten at a time? For a bit, okay months, I thought I was losing my touch. Many things about computers and operations are intuitive. For some reason, this was not working when I had been using a computer regularly since 1991.
A massive Win 10 update may have been the cure. I don't have to know why because I know it was not me! You do know that Win 10 is a work in progress, don't you? Win 7 was great. I only had about a month of Win 8.1 but was fed up with 8.1 when my free Win 10 finally showed up.
So, it is not me! I am not so old I am forgetful or incompetent. SO THERE!
Have you ever felt like you were losing your touch, your edge, when it was not you but whatever you were working with?
