    Maybe he will need Wireless switch utility. Sometimes Win10 turns off WiFi without this utility running. But other than that...
    for example?

    Well... His Gobi for one... He has no need or use as he likes to use his hotspots as he has other things that connect. The next two are the "PCI Serial Port" and the "PCI Data Acquisition and Signal Process Controller."

    IIRC... Those wouldn't install on my last one. I'll have to check to make sure. I think it was tied to the power mgt feature where Wn10 won't recognize the drivers.

    I don't have a CF-31, so I can't speak to that model specifically, but with my CF-30 MK3, I had no issues with Windows 10. Whatever it didn't install, I took care of after. The few things it did have issues with just took some googling to find the latest driver versions to replace it, (or in one case, an older one with legacy support because the newer one was for the wrong hardware version). Unfortunately, doing the same on my boss' CF-30 MK1 was a bit more difficult, as it didn't play nice the first time around, and a later Windows 10 build update broke it completely. I still to this day don't know why. He ended up going back to Windows 7.

    It may be hit and miss depending on your luck, given my personal experience, (although I'm sure you know more about this than I do). Personally I hate to have things not working, but usually the average person doesn't care about most of the extra features that would be non-functional on these systems if you don't install the drivers.

    Worst case, you could always ask him how he feels about it, and see how he wants to proceed.

    The CF-30's can be a rat's nest in regards to upgrading to an OS it wasn't designed for. Once you figure out the process it's not all that bad. My MK-2 wasn't all that hard going to W7 but my MK3 was a *****.

    Rick can attest to the headaches we endured years back.

    It is so odd that these systems are hit and miss! I still find it strange that the 64-bit versions were nicer to me than the 32-bit ones. Last I checked, 32-bit carried more driver support due to its age and prevalence!

    Windows 10 won’t let users shutdown PCs without installing updates

    The Windows 10 April 2018 Update
    began rolling out to the public all over the world as a free update for all compatible laptops, desktops, and tablets as well. The latest version of the OS is the fifth major update that Microsoft is releasing, and it brought a wide set of features and changes for enhancing performance, productivity and stability as well.

    Microsoft removes Shut Down option if there are pending updates
    A Reddit user announced that Microsoft removed the Shut Down option from Windows in case you have pending updates. In other words, if some updates are waiting to be installed, you won’t have the ability to shut down your computer without installing them.

    Before this happened, Microsoft offered users an option to Update and Shut Down and Update and Restart. You were able to choose the option that best suited you. There were also the traditional Shut Down, Restart and Sleep options available.

    What this change means
    Well, Microsoft’s latest revision to its OS is nothing more and nothing less than another try to force its users to install updates whether they want to or not. The Reddit user who noticed the latest update in the OS posted a screenshot where you can clearly see the new options that are available
