    Question about old programs.


    Hi!
    I'm a little confused, just started using Win10.

    I noticed there's a Windows.old folder with everything from before the upgrade, I've been saving some files from there but just when I need to do some serious cleaning with, say, CCleaner, it just analyzes my notebook from AFTER the upgrade, not considering what was installed before.

    How do I fix this?

    I forgot to add, I'm not talking about the Old Windows Instalation checkbox in the Cleaner tag, I'm talking about the installed programs in the Tool tag.

    :)

    question about programs & games about Windows 10

    After i upgrade to Windows 10. Do i have to reinstall games n programs i frequently use?

    Or will they be functioning normally in Windows 10 as well?

    I tried to look for answer for this but i'm not entirely sure if 'applications' qualify as an answer i'm seeking.
