    windows 10 and old systems


    I am running windows 10 on an old core2duo hp desktop system and I gave the machine an SSD to boot from. but I also gave it a 4 TB harddrive.

    The drive was from another system (I have many many systems) and was already formatted and windows 10 lists it as a 4 TB drive.

    But the old bios lists it as a 2 TB drive when booting up. Should I be worried or does Windows 10 have it all under control?

    Should I be worried?

    :)

    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
