  1. Windows 10 Pro on new PC & VM


    Apologies if this has been asked before, I was unable to find the information I needed.

    I'm building a new PC that will serve as both my personal and work device, and plan on doing all work inside of a VM also running Windows 10. They are requiring me to install Microsoft Intune and SecureWorks for company data/codebase protection, and with that I'll need a legitimate pro license. Both of these software's will be installed on the VM.

    My question is this: Will I be able to use the Microsoft sold Pro License on both the primary OS and the VM? I understand that the Pro License follows you from device to device but was unsure how it functions inside of a unique instance.

    Thanks for the help, I'd definitely appreciate any links for further understanding.

    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

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
