@steviesmom, welcome to the forum.


When requesting help you should always include the make/model (i.e. p6-xxxx) of the computer and/or monitor. This information is necessary for us to review the specifications of them.  Also, which software are you wanting to install?

Since you have failed to provide us any details by not answering the questions posed to you by @old_geekster, all I can suggest is that you track down the website(s) of the vendor of the application(s) you want to install and (1) find out if their old CD-based versions will still work with Win10, and (2) check to see if they have a newer version that you can download and use with the license you have for the old version.  Typically, versions that are several years newer require you to buy new licenses.
