How can I get help with Windows 10?
The problem is that I have just made the MISTAKE of upgrading from Windows 7 Home Edition to Windows 10.
Now, none of the sites, that I was regularly on, with 7, will recognize my passwords, with 10.
Not to mention the fact that 10 is a "nightmare", for anyone without a computer programming degree.
HOW do I get back on google, blogger, and so many sites, which REFUSE to accept my current codes?
All answers in HUMAN English, PLEASE

Try closing and restarting your browser.

Well if you were familiar with Windows 7 you made a system image before you upgraded. So restore your computer system image back to Windows 7. After you have done that. And everything is working again import every one of your bookmarks into Firefox or Google chrome and synchronize it. Then create a USB installation stick with the Windows 10 media installation tool. Pay attention to what version of Windows 7 that you're using example either home or professional.
Now take another drive and save your favorites and your pictures your music etc onto that drive.
Now take the USB installer that you have made.
Boot to it that's f12 if you're on a Dell and f9 if you're on a Hewlett Packard
Now delete all of the partitions that you see when you run the installer and click the button that says new.
Install a brand new version of Windows 10.
After it is installed and everything is updated which usually takes about an hour and a half. You can take your USB drive that you have your favorites and your pictures and your music and put them all back into your main folder.
You don't see the recycle bin the control panel my computer where is it? Right click in the center of your desktop choose personalization on the personalization menu find where it says desktop icons check mark the box that says recycle bin control panel my computer etc click apply now it's on your desktop just like it was with Windows 7.
Put everything back in your main folder where it was before.
Now download either Google chrome or Firefox and sign into your account click synchronize.
In just a couple of minutes all of your bookmarks that you synchronized to Google chrome or Firefox from Windows 7 they're back where they're supposed to be.
And all your passwords work just like they're supposed to.
If you can't figure out the windows 10 start menu then download classic Shell for Windows 10 it'll make your computer look just like Windows 7 and it's free.

Windows 10 keeps Windows 7 available for 30 days in case you want to revert back. Yes, it's that simple. You can restore Windows 7 to your PC. This URL will step you through it. https://www.howtogeek.com/220723/how-to-uninstall-...

When you replaced your operating system, you uninstalled the old one. It contained your browser and its cookies--the little snippets of code that includes information for automatic sign in, like your user name and password for each site. Any other data you had stored, like a credit card number or a mailing address, may also be lost, although a lot of retail websites save that for their customers. The installation of the new OS involved updating or upgrading any browsers you had installed, like Firefox, Chrome, Edge, etc. But the cookies were gone.
I'm astonished that someone with a programming degree doesn't know this.
This is why the user needs to maintain a list of user names and passwords, ideally not on the computer they're using, since it can suffer a fatal crash or be compromised by malware. It would be safe to keep such a list in the cloud, or on a piece of paper you keep handy.
Many browsers seem eager to store passwords for you. You can allow that, but don't depend on them alone.
I recommend you try a password manager program. LastPass.com is supposed to be good.
Meanwhile, though, you need to start the process of contacting each website when you've lost your automatic log-in to recover your user account name and reset the passwords--which you write down.
