    Windows 10 - Hard Drive Transfer


    I bought a computer last fall and it ran great after I upgraded it into a gaming computer. The only issue that is starting to arise is that the old hard drive has started skipping and isn't running near as quickly as my other hard drives. I have a brand new barracuda 2tb hard drive that has been sitting in my case doing absolutely nothing because I haven't been able to figure out how to transfer my windows 10 pro copy to the hard drive without having to purchase another Windows 10 copy. This is due to the fact that I did not purchase the copy of windows and I have no clue where to find my digital license which says it is linked to my Microsoft account. I simply just want my windows 10 pro copy to transfer and I do not care if it wipes all the rest of my data. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do to accomplish my task?

    :)

    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
