    HI all, So what I'm planning to do is upgrade my rig with an SSD, but I don't really want to lose my files. Is there a way to refresh Windows, and have the "refreshed" install and my files on a separate drive than what Windows was originally installed on?

    :)

    Can I, the admin. get a separate password then the one used to access the web, to obtain my email so other family members cannot access it? ( without opening separate accounts for everyone)

    If you're talking about web access to Outlook.com then the only way to do that is to tell your web browser not to remember your password.

    If you're talking about the Windows 10 Mail app, then no you can't.

    No you can't do exactly that.

    You can however transfer your data over to the new drive. It's pretty simple of a procedure.

    Do you want to do that?
