  1. I can install Windows 10 on 2 comps with one license?


    I just bought one license, burned it to a disk and installed it on a new Firecuda drive. Just for the heck of it, today I wiped the drive on my other smaller desktop and installed it without entering a license. They both work fine, but I thought it was only good for one computer, or am I getting some other version of windows 10 on one of the comps?

    The other thing I noticed is, the drive I used to download and burn the disk on somehow included the desktop screen picture I had on it to the disk. After I installed the Win 10 on the new drive it had the same desktop picture. Did it transfer parts of my old system onto the disk, or is it a pure copy of 10?

    :)

  2. Windows 7 computer sharing a printer, installing that printer on a Windows 10

    I have a Canon ImageClass D420 printer that is currently connected through USB (only option, not capable of a network connection) to a Windows 7 computer (which we will call Comp-1). I have sharing options turned on and have successfully connected another
    Windows 7 computer (Comp-2) to this printer. I also have a Windows 10 computer (Comp-3) connected to the printer.

    All three of these computers have two accounts: an administrator account and a standard user account.

    Comp-1 and Comp-2 have no problems printing from either the admin account or the user account.

    On Comp-3, when I installed the printer, I installed it through the administrator account, just like I did with the other two, but it does not appear on the standard user account and I cannot get it installed on the standard account.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I can install Windows 10 on 2 comps with one license?

    You cannot. You need to either have a prior edition OS license after you get it installed or a volume license. No longer can you use the old Volume licenses that were available before Anniversary Edition came out.
