I doubt the majority of users ever read the Terms and Conditions PB...I know I don't.

So right Radish I have read them on a few occasions but never understood them anyway --- you would have to be a blooming Barrister to understand them and often I  have refused to accept because I did not understand them -- I just wondered about that article as it was sent via email and looked like things might be changing?? For Windows users??

 

Are you using Windows 10 ???

No I am not using 10 -- but one day I might be??????????

Still really have not a clue though about this, Suze -- does it mean you have to close your account  ie STOP using the computer if you have 10?????

If you bought Office in the past you would get updates for it and not have to pay any more .... now you have to pay for all your updates.

THanks Suze
