    Can I have 2 homegroups for 2 of his computers and 2 of her computers.


    My wife and I each have 2 win 10 computers and would like mine to both have the same files and hers to have the same files etc. I don't want mine to interfere with hers and hers to interfere with mine.
    I have no experience with networking and my brain is hampered with prescription chemcals so if this is possible I would appreciate detailed instructions.
    Thanks

    :)

    Can I install my version of Windows on 2 computers?

    from the link you provided

    c. Using Windows Desktop Operating Systems.
    Your DreamSpark Direct Subscription includes certain Windows operating system products. You may install these products
    only on a computer that is already licensed to run a full version
    of a Windows operating system on it, as evidenced by a valid Certificate of Authenticity (COA) for a Windows operating system affixed to the computer.

    As ZigZag3143 pointed out the answer to the question you asked is no. you can't use the same copy of windows 10 or the copy of windows 8 that you upgraded to 10.

    however the other answers you have received are also correct - assuming you are not building the computer yourself (ie components and no OS) then either Windows 8.1 will be installed, which you can upgrade for free, or windows 10 will be installed, you can
    use the same Microsoft account to logon.

    Sorry to bother you, but I just found this: https://www.dreamspark.com/Student/Direct-EULA.aspx

    It states "You may install and use two (2) copies of the DreamSpark Direct Subscription software on your devices"

    Since I acquired my copy through DreamSpark (MSDNAA), I should be able to activate my Windows on 2 machines, no?

    Can I have 2 homegroups for 2 of his computers and 2 of her computers.

    No you cannot create two different Homegroups. All that a homegroup is is a private connection to libraries between 1 Master and 1 Slave. If you want to share folders to specific people, you can set Password restrictions and create a user to access those folders or just foot for a NAS and then you can make it so that you have specific rules for each user.
