Will PCRecruiter work on Windows 10?

Whenever a new operating system update comes out, it’s common for our users to ask if they can use PCRecruiter with it. Windows 10, which Microsoft began officially releasing on July 29, 2015 is no different. Our testing has determined that those who wish to update to Windows 10 should not experience any major issues with PCRecruiter or the PCR Portal for Microsoft Outlook.

One thing you should be aware of is that Windows 10 comes with a new default web browser called Microsoft Edge which is intended to replace Internet Explorer. While we haven’t found any major issues with using PCRecruiter on the Windows 10 operating system at this time, we do not officially support the new Microsoft Edge browser yet and you may experience issues in it until we have completed testing and updates.

  • If you use PCRecruiter 8 and are planning to move up to Windows 10, you will want to continue to run PCRecruiter in Internet Explorer 11, which should still be available by searching your machine or looking in your Start Menu. If IE 11 is not installed on your Windows 10 machine, you can download IE 11 from the Microsoft Store).
  • If you are using PCRecruiter 9, Google Chrome remains the recommended web browser on PC or Mac, but PCR 9 will also work on IE11 and Safari browsers.
  • After updating to Windows 10, you may need to re-install the PCRecruiter Launcher on your PC.

As always, updating to any freshly-released operating system remains something of a ‘buyer beware’ decision. If you don’t have a pressing need to get Windows 10 installed, you may want to wait for our QA department’s official go-ahead, which will appear here and on your PCRecruiter login screen.
