    In a vb.net web form 2010 application that uses the rad editor, the development workstation uses windows 7 currently. In the near future, they will be using windows 10 workstations for development. The skin  value for the radeditor uses a skin that points to windows7 as listed below:

      <telerik:RadEditor ID="reLetterEditor"

    When the development workstation is changed to using windows 10, is there anything I need to be aware of concerned about?

    Will changing the skin value to be "Windows10" be enough? Is that all I need to do except for testing the application?

    Hi Diane,

    The Skin property of our controls is related only to their appearance (i.e., which stylesheets from our assemblies they will fetch). It is not related to the operating system in any way and you do not need to change anything.

    You can find a list with the embedded skins here: http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/general-information/controlling-visual-appearance/how-skins-work#built-in-skins. While some of them are inspired by certain Microsoft products/versions (e.g., Windows7, Vista, Office2010Silver), they are just there for visual aids so they can better match your web application and, in some cases, bring it closer to a desktop app appearance.

    The only other suggestion I have is that you consider setting the NewLineMode property to P (its default value). You can read more about this change and its implications here: http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/editor/changes-and-backwards-compatibility/inline-and-block-commands-behavior-change.
