I have recently downloaded windows 10 as all the programmes on my laptop stopped working on windows 8. After I downloaded my computer runs incredibly slow, I have to wait about 20 minutes after clicking on a programme for it to actually open up, if it opens at all. Once my laptop goes on standby I cant turn it back on without turning my laptop completely off using the power button. Is there any thing I can do that won't result in me losing files.

That was not a valid reason for upgrading your laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.
Are your programs working okay now?

We don't know anything about your laptop, so we don't know why it's running slow.
What brand name and model name and model number is it?

If your personal files are that important to you, they should be backed up in some reliable external media.
If your laptop crashes or its hard drive dies, you may lose them permanently.
