  1. Reset Windows 10 - apps on other drives


    According to MS (and elsewhere) if you use a Recovery drive to "Reset" your PC - and you elect to keep your own personal files, it will still be necessary to re-install apps after Reset. Is this true of apps that were installed on a drive other than the Windows (normally CReset Windows 10 - apps on other drives :) drive? I like to keep my windows drive as free of programs clutter as I can.

    I suspect the answer is going to be "Yes" since any required drivers and also Registry Settings will probably always be in the Windows folder/subfolders on the "Windows" drive.

    (Windows 10 version 1909 Build 18363.657)
    TIA

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Hi Brink

    I have looked at the first method you suggested but Microsoft Edge is not featured in the Apps and Features List am I missing something?

    If you haven't already, you might see if resetting Microsoft Edge may help fix it.
