    transfer all settings, data and applications


    Hi.
    As most old men, I lost my PC, I installed win 10 home edition N by mistake, When I tried to activate windows I could not because my key is for home edition "without N", then I installed and activated correct one on PC.
    Now I need :
    1- transfer all settings, data and applications to correct edition.
    2- uninstall N edition after transfer.
    Please help.
    Thanks.

    You can only transfer your data files, unless you want to try PC Mover:

    Copy them from the old account under the old \Users folder to your present account under you new \Users folder. When you first try to get into your old folder under the old \Users folder it will tell you that you need administrator privileges to access the files, the when you click OK expect it to take a couple minutes to update the permissions.

    OK then.... the recent Windows drive letter will be C:\ when you are booted into the Windows that is activated. You will then want to move your data files (documents, pictures, music, movies, etc.) from the other \User folder under the drive letter that is not C:\ drive into your \User folder under C:\ drive.

    I like MiniTool Partition Wizard:
    Best Free Partition Manager for Windows | MiniTool Partition Free

    Delete the partition containing the Windows 10 that you no longer want to keep. Then expand one or both of the partitions next to it to fill the empty space. Or you can create a new drive letter in the empty space if you want. Be sure to click the apply button, nothing actually changes on the hard disk until you click apply.

    If you still have an additional Windows 10 showing up on the boot menu that is no longer there you can run:

    msconfig

    Select the boot tab and you can delete the extra entry there.
