    I have now decided to bite the bullet and go for the Win10 upgrade. Before I do I would like to know more about the procedure, Can anyone direct me to a good source of information on the subject.

    Thank you for your lightening reply. I'll check on that URL. In the meantime, I must say I am a little confused about this product key. Some articles I have read say I need it and others say otherwise. Could you please advise? By the way, here is my list of computer details.

    You appear to have a HP/Compaq brand computer.
    What is its model name and complete model number?
    What is its exact product number(P/N)?

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Your computer has a wimpy processor with a low benchmark score, so don't expect it to be speedy and "snappy".

    These are the details you want
    Type HP Pavillion Touchsmart 20 all in one pc.
    Model: 20f201a
    Serial #: 3CR324031Z
    Product #: H5Z02AA#ABG

    Regarding the box above enclosed with dotted lines and a remark about a wimpy processor - did you insert this or is this some advert or something??
    If it is, I'll have something to say to Mr HP.

    That's a direct quote from the site flavallee used to check the specs on your processor, NOT an advertisement.

    thanks,

    It was introduced in July 2013 in Australia and New Zealand and came with Windows 8 64-bit.
    The processor in it is not upgradeable to a faster one, so unfortunately you're stuck with the processor that came in it.
    It came with 4 GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, but it supports up to 16 GB, so you might consider adding another 4 GB to it.
    I submitted that image from its benchmark score site so you can see for yourself how low it is.
    I'm sorry you took offense to what I said earlier, but I was being up front and honest with you.
