  1. Passing on used PC to new owner


    Windows 10 Version 20H2 PC:

    I wish to pass on my PC, when I get my new one, to a new owner.
    The new owner in question is my dear lady wife!
    I do not wish to remove anything but my own persononal files.
    There are no security issues.
    I want to retain all the currently installed software.
    She needs to be able to sign in using her own Microsoft Account (which she aldready has.)
    What is the way to proceed?
    Do I create a new account for her on the PC then remove my own?

    Thank you in advance for any useful suggestions.

    :)

  2. Unknown User as Owner

    Hi Bree, thanks for stepping up to address this issue.
    As far as I know my External Drive has only been used on my PC.

    I could try to implement your suggestion and take Ownership of those Folders.
    The "Take Ownership" link is present in my right click menu, but I'm currently logged in with my Microsoft account, so perhaps it would be better if I went Properties --> Security --> Advanced & set the Owner to Administrators, no?!

    Although my mind is bugged with a new question now.
    If I change the Owner & later on I have to restore a backup (Acronis on a CD) won't I encounter problems then?

    • Do let us know the make and model of your computer?

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds
