  1. Giving Win10 PC to Son, To reset, or not to reset?


    I want to give my desktop PC to my Son. I don't want to do a complete reset because it is all updated and set up for gaming with software and drivers for Graphics card etc. I'm also including second hard drive for him to use as storage for games/programs ( It is clean) and a third which has our family pictures and his music on it. I want my microsoft account to be safe, but I also want to keep it simple for him. The PC has aftermarket Logitech Gaming keyboard and mouse as well as Game controller. In order for all this eqpt. to work flawlessly, I had to spend time setting it all up and I don't want to lose all this work by resetting.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Richard

    :)
