I typed the following code in the command window, and the figure window comes out blank:
>> x = [1 2 3 5 7 7.5 8 10]
>> y = [2 6.5 7 7 5.5 4 6 8]
>> plot(x,y)
I am using MATLAB R2010a on Windows 10, 64-bit. Please help!

According to Platform Road Map for the MATLAB and Simulink Product Families (link), the earliest version of MATLAB supported on Windows 10 is R2015a.
That could be the problem.

That command produces the expected plot for me.
You might be pointing to something other than the built-in plot command. What is the output of the command
which plot -all
Also, do you also get a blank plot window if you force the creation of a new figure window?
x = [1 2 3 5 7 7.5 8 10]
y = [2 6.5 7 7 5.5 4 6 8]
figure
plot(x,y)

  1. Completely restart the Matlab
  2. Try this set command, before plotting into figure
set(0, 'defaultFigureRenderer', 'painters')
3. If its does not helps, try follow:
