  1. Does update Windows 10 from another PC on the local network actually work?


    I have a functional private local network that transfers files to/from up to 5 computers. One is a laptop that is always fully Win 10 updated. Currently the network shows no activity toward updating any of the others.


    I've reviewed several articles on "how to" and several forums questions and answers and found no clear answer to the basic does it work at all question. Two questions directly related to my question were asked here a year ago, with several answers, none of which said yes.


    If the basic function does work, tell me how to activate it? I.e get it updating a non updated network computer from whichever end I need to?

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Does update Windows 10 from another PC on the local network actually work?

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”
