I prefer Nikon's Raw conversion over LR but I almost always use LR. I may try this but I've already deleted ViewNX and Capture ND (or whatever their proper names are).I've never used Nikon software. There are so many very good software options available today there is just no reason for me to try Nikon s/w.
What do you mean when you say "only 7 was also backward compatible"? Can you tell us the software you have that can run on Win 7 but won't run on Win 10 - I can't think of any, except games that hit hardware directly. There is no great difference in backward compatibility between them. But there is one exception, 32 bit vs 64 bit. If your Windows 7 system is 32 bit then you really are stuck in the past, as more and more software is 64 bit.I recently tried to download NX-D only to find out the latest version (all that is available) will not download onto Windows 7. Then this announcement, and again, will not download onto Windows 7. My question is why? So far as I can tell 7,8, and 10 have always been compatible, but only 7 was also backward compatible and I have a few key programs that require that. I wonder if this isn't "pandering" to Microsoft who has finally given up support for 7. At any rate, no new software for me, and no new camera sales for Nikon.
In Windows 10 those settings are found by right-clicking the executable, then go to the Compatibility tab.Actually, I do run Windows 7 / 64. But Windows 7 has settings that can wrap older programs in "helper" software that makes them fully compatible, as if they were running on NT. These "helper" programs are not available on 10, or at least weren't when 10 first came out and I tried it.
Once installed you go to All Settings/Personalisation/Background. You can choose a picture, a solid colour or a slideshow.Well, I'm blushing. I skimmed the manual and read a commercial "Guide to" for Windows 10 and either I missed it or it wasn't there. I also think I may have tried it on a program I use it on in 7, and didn't get the same result. I'll download 10 (the handwriting is on the wall) and try again. BTW, is there an easy way to install just a blank background screen upon installation, or does it have to be changed afterward?
