Hard to say about the transition as everyone has different hardware and programs on their system.  I had no big problems learning where to find settings and such with WIN10, just takes a bit of poking around.  You might have driver problems if you have a very old scanner, printer or old games and software.  You can go here http://download.microsoft.com/download/C/8/0/C8007C4E-D1DD-4922-A966-3A927E86A033/GWXWebWindows.exe

This a Win10 compatibility checker I found on Microsoft's site.  Should give you the info that you need.  The "upgrade" mode worked for me, but if you have all the install files for your programs you might want to do a "clean" install.  Either way please do a full backup that you can install if something goes wrong with the upgrade. Depending on the speed of your system it could take several hours to complete the upgrade.

As said above may have little to no problems also there is away to have Win10 run like Win7 in settings....Drivers are key as Win10 will try to change often but you can manage it by veiwing device manager when you feel a problem or notice one...I went Win7 to Win10 on the free upgrade and run mostly old software/games and made out ok and you always have the roll back option should you not like...Document what you have now as far as drivers are concerned that way you know what you have/need when you get there

 

Best of Luck
