  1. Getting Win 10 folders as on 8.1


    On earlier windows I could have several folders open at the same time on the desktop, move them around, and have them ready on the desktop when I next switched on. Also they now have a "ribbon" which I don't need .

    How can I get those in Win 10 please? -
    - several folders open at once
    - power to move each to wherever I want it on screen
    - have them open automatically in size and position when I next start up the machine
    - have them just list their contents by name without a ribbon

    Thanks, friends! (Oh, and is there a useful Win10 Manual?) - Eric

    :)

    Copy Data to USB HD

    In WIN 7 & WIN 8.1 I used to copy the complete C:Users folder to my external USB HD. Never any problems.

    In WIN 10 it does not work. Too many details to spell out.

    How do I get WIN 10 to function properly on this simple task?

    I can copy individual folders from C:Users, but not the complete folder.
