  1. transfer W10 pro from a broken PC


    Hello,


    my PC failed to restart in the process of a windows update. I got a black screen. no bios. so rather than faff around I have bought another PC.


    I have the OS drive from my old PC and all info on that can be accessed. Is there any way that I can transfer my w10 pro to my new PC?


    thanks

    :)

  3. Transferring W10 Pro license to me?

    Hello,

    My neighbor passed away recently. His family gave me his pc which is running Windows 10 Pro installed on a refurb pc. I own a pc with Win 10 Home OEM. Is there a way for me to transfer the product key & license to myself and upgrade my pc to W10 Pro?

    Thanks,

    Gary

    transfer W10 pro from a broken PC

    transfer files between computers on a home network

    I don't know why this is so hard to do but I would like to transfer files between a desktop PC running windows 10 pro and a laptop running windows 10 home. I would like to transfer files in both directions. Both computers are on the same home network and are connected wirelessly.

    Could some one provide either specific step by step instructions on how to do this (I googled and found a countless list of instructions that don't work)

    or a link to a reference.

    Thanks,

    I don't know if this is possible but it would be nice to see the computer sending the desired file in the explorer file manager of the computer receiving the desired file and then under the computer see a list
    of shared files and folders.

    Again, this seems like such a reasonable way of sharing files and folders. Shouldn't there be a simple way to do this?
