PhoneTray Pro is fully compatible with Windows 10

As you know Windows 10 has been released and Windows 8 and Windows 7 users can upgrade to Windows 10 for free. PhoneTray Pro is fully compatible with Windows 10 and works without any problems on Windows 10. All USB modems that we sell and recommend are also compatible. Windows 10 has built-in drivers for all those modems. It will detect the modem and install the drivers automatically.

On some computers Windows 10 update renames PhoneTray data files. If you don’t see your contacts, calls or blocked numbers after the update, please do the following: open PhoneTray Pro, click PhoneTray logo and select Shutdown PhoneTray. Click Yes if Windows asks if you want to allow PhoneTray Service to make changes. Open C:\Users\Public\Documents\PhoneTray folder. Rename Phonetray.data located in that folder to PhonetrayNew.data. Then rename Phonetray(1).data to Phonetray.data. Double-click on PhoneTray icon on your desktop to start PhoneTray again. You should see all your data again and PhoneTray should start working. Please contact phonetray@traysoft.com if you have any problems and we will be happy to help.
