Last time win10 affected me
It was the Intel/MS Mobo audio driver in a major windows 10 update. I solved it eventually by deleting device and pointing installer at windows.old
None of MS remedies worked.
Also had problems on Win7 & Win10 with Wacom tablet, Brother printers and Epson scanner.
All worked fine on Linux Mint. I did have to download the Brother driver from Brother, easy to find and their Debian installer tool worked perfectly. Recently added a new Brother MFC colour laser and was amazed that the scanner works on LAN to Linux Mint too (in GIMP via SANE). Mate Desktop, Traditional OK theme and some mods.
99.9% of what I do is on Linux now. Sadly some other people I know only use Win7 or Win 10.
