  1. Rearranging file locations

    I reformatted one of my PC a while back and obviously did something wrong. My PC has a 250 GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. All my stuff is on the SSD. I would like for my OS and whatever else should live on that drive to be there and all my storage be on the HDD.I'd like to keep my programs but if I have to, Im prepared to do a complete reformat.....I just want to get it right this time.All my stuff is backed up.BTW...the machine was originally windows 7 pro but it has been updated to 10.Thanks in advance.

  2. Rearranging bookmarks in Edge

    I agree, not being able to rearrange bookmarks makes locating bookmarks within long list time consuming. Even if Edge respected import-order that would be great.

    • Press Windows key, type Location settings and select
      Change location settings.
    • Check whether Location for this device is On by clicking on

    Step 2: And as you are unable to set the service Geolocation service to automatic, I suggest you to run SFC scan and check.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).
