Will my QuickBooks 2015 and QuickBooks 2016 work on Windows 10?

We have two company files used on two different computers. The Backoffice computer has QuickBooks Pro 2016 that is dedicatedly used for Company’s bookkeeping and Payroll processing. The front desk computer has QuickBooks Pro 2015 and is used for just for making sales receipts for the customers. Both the computers are older with Windows 7 and Vista installed on them and have horribly slow performance. Before we replace the old computers with the newer ones, will our existing QuickBooks Software’s be compatible with Windows 10? We have to decide the further course of action basis that information. Can someone quickly suggest or share some information? Thank you in advance.
