You don't need Windows10 than. You can try backup-restore. With Windows10 you sacrifice your privacy and give Microsoft(and also law enforcement together) total control over your PC.

once you're on the internet, it's visible what you're looking for and working with.
very bad for my business. i'm not even comfortable with windows 7 that also to some degree sacrifices your privacy.
your location, your searches are clearly visible because the pattern of search always comes back.
Apple or Linux is in my mind. Apple is certainly best for the sound quality.
There's measures that you can take to make Windows more secure if you have no choice but to use it for everything. A more workable solution, and one I use myself, is to set your computer up to dual boot Windows and Linux. Anytime I have to do anything on the internet, I use Linux. The only time Windows sees the internet is for updates, and once in a while when your only option is to use IE.
Before you do any of this, you don't have to jump in feet first and start repartitioning hard drives. Most Linux distributions are available in the form of a live system. That means you download the OS and put it on a DVD or usb stick. You reboot the PC and the Linux OS runs directly off the portable media and doesn't touch your system. When you're done working in Linux, you just reboot the system and everything goes right back to Windows. If you like, I can show you exactly where to go for a download. Its all very simple and risk free.
