It's Windows 10. When I rewrite or update pages with Win7/8 screenshots, 
I replace them with ones from the latest Windows client version. I think

We should really not have individual pages for each OS version. We still 
have duplicated content in the Wiki and I do my best to get rid of it. 
Duplicate content is very hard to maintain and often inconsistent. Often 
it is updated only on one place. We had a lot of such cases in our 

If steps or procedures differ in Windows versions, we should of course

make clear what's different. That's better than having instructions for 
each OS.
