    Got new Win 10 Desktop


    Well it is new to me. I guess I will spend the next week or so just learning to get around on it.

    I know it has an SSD hard drive on which only Windows 10 is installed. It also has 1 TB hard drive that I want to partition into 3 drives That mean I will have to rename the DVD drive so that when the drive is partitioned, it will be named the way I want it named (keep fingers crossed, but no big deal.

    I know there are certain things I prefer like IE instead of Edge and Windows explorer over File that comes in Windows 10..

    My cousin who gave me the PC installed a few things for me and will need to learn to use those..

    One thing I would like to know right now is: How to tell what version of Windows 10 I have??

    Thanks a bunch.

    :)

    windows 10 deleted my desktop files

    Step 1 - I upgraded to Win 10 and lost all my files on Desktop.

    Step 2 - Found the files in Network - USers- Desktop

    copied all files again to desktop.

    Step 3- Restarted my machine again and lost desktop files again.

    Step 4 - As suggested did the following as listed below but dont find my files.

    • Press “Windows + E”, open This PC/Computer
    • Open Local Disc C, open Windows.old
    • Click on Users, select your User name
    • Go to desktop folder
    Cant find my files. Why is Win 10 deleted files again and again from Desktop ?.

    Move Favorites icon to desktop win-10

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows.

    • How are you trying to add the favorites to desktop?
    I suggest you to try the below steps to save the favorites on desktop and check if it helps.

    • Open the Internet Explorer and minimize the screen.
    • Then go to the favorites tab and then drag any favorites that you have saved to the desktop.
    • Once you get the favorites items \ folders then you can open the favorites and check if it is opening.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
