    Updating 2nd instance of Windows 10


    I have an SSD on my laptop which I have just upgraded to a larger capacity to allow me to have a second instance of windows in an adjacent partition. I am now in the process of re-installing windows on this new drive and wondered if when the first instance of windows has fully downloaded and installed all the current updates, can I copy the updated version across to the second instance of windows rather than going through the whole download and updating process for a second time ?

    :)

    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

  4. Updating 2nd instance of Windows 10

    Can I clean install 2nd instance of windows 10?

    ...after windows 7 free upgraded to windows 10 (to C partition where win7 was)

    so I can keep this 1st instance of windows 10 on C: partition (unchanged)

    separate from 2nd instance (on separate partition of same harddrive),

    i.e. then offer both win10 instances available via dual-boot menu?

    Thanks from Stephen
