    Ever since I upgraded to Windows 10, I have been unable to create hubs or edit existing hubs.  I have appealed to the Powers That Be at HP but they claim they are unable to replicate my problem.  However, they refuse to confirm if they are testing on Windows 10 using an account that doesn't have admin privilages.  Another hubber was also unable to edit her hubs and was also using Windows 10 which tells me that the problem is Windows 10.

    Is anyone else using Windows 10?  Have you had any problems creating and editing hubs?  If so,have you found a work-around?

      I'm using Windows 10 and so far, after about six months or so, I haven't encountered any problems.

        Glad to hear it.  I wouldn't wish my problems on anyone else!

      This sounds like a browser issue, not a Windows problem. Have you tried another browser? Checking your security settings in your browser and making sure HP has not been inadvertently blocked? Uninstalling/reinstalling? Clearing your cache? Run a cleaner such as CCleaner? Logging into HP from another computer?

      You didn't say whether you could access the HP site and where the problem occurs.

    Thanks for your input.  Troubleshooting my problems has been a nightmare.

    I use Window 10 as my office computer and I wish it would go away.  We had a server crash that meant we had to get new desktops, and the guy who sold them to us seems to love W10 but we (and our tech guy) are not so enthused. I wish I could give you some useful info about it, but I haven't reached that moment of "zen" just yet.

      I appreciate you sharing your experiences with Win10.  I like it and haven't had any problems with it except with HP.  It doesn't seem to like HP.

        How old is your computer? The HP website tends to push the tech envelope to the max.

          I purchased my laptop last year.  Prior to that, I had a laptop that was Win8, then upgraded to Win8.1.  No problems with HP.  The problems started when I purchased this laptop and upgraded it to Win10.

            Do you have CCleaner? I swear by the free version. http://download.cnet.com/ccleaner/ It'll cleanup all sorts of problems.

              Thank you for the suggestion.

    Another thought, are your win10 updates set to automatic? If not, I'd recommend changing to yes.

      I'm a former IT worker.  My laptop is (auto) updated, virus protected and backed up.  I'm just a little fanatical about it.

        I am also former tech. And I'm fresh out of ideas. big_smile

    I've been using Windows 10 on my PC and laptop since it came out.   No problems with HP at all.

    Got to admit I really liked Windows 7 though - it was really stable IMO.

    I have Windows 10 and I have had no issues with creating Hubs. I don't know much about these things but my computer seems to work much better with Windows 10 than Windows 7. Good luck in finding the solution. Blessings!

      No problems with windows 10, just don't like some of the features.  You could go back to the previous version, if the 10 is giving you problems.

        Not if the OP has had it installed for longer than 30 days. I'm not sure what the procedure is then for rollback.

        There are some articles... she could try this: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/rollback- … er-30-days

        Rolling back is an extreme option if i'm only having problems with one site.  Everything else works fine.  It'seems just HP that's not working.

    Windows 10 is great, really fast startup and shutdown.

    Not a single issue with it so far either.

      I agree!  It works great for me except with HP.

    This just occurred to me...

    Are you using the WIN10 MS Edge Browser? HP and that browser do indeed tend to not get along. In fact, that browser doesn't get along with a lot of Google products either, Blogger being a good example.

      I normally use Chrome, but I have also tried Firefox, IE, Edge and just downloaded Opera but that is not compatible with HP.

    After CCleaner has cleaned everything up and straightened everything out, I'd try the latest FF with Adblock Plus. Works for me, but your results may vary. big_smile

      Sorry, but I stay away from so-called "registry cleaners".  They are legacy software from the earliest days of Windows when software tended to clutter up registries.  Since XP, if software is properly uninstalled, no files are left in the registry.  Both Microsoft and IT professionals all recommend against using registry cleaners on modern OS.  They tend to cause more problems than they solve by removing files that shouldn't be removed.  Personally, I don't like any software or person touching my registry.  I handle that myself.  So far I have not found anything suspicious or unnecessary in my registry.  I will look into ad blockers but I don't see how that would help me.

        You can tell it to skip the registry part.

        Do have it do at least the browser cache and cookies part. I'm thinking it's something there that is what's causing you grief.

    I will refrain from downloading until I cannot. I might have a Mac by then I'm just all Windowed out.

    Unnecessary start up programs could also be giving you grief. It will sort that out as well.

      Aha!  I hadn't thought of startup programs.  I'll look into that.  Thanks!
