    What is that bottom listing, it says SSD, but called:

    Volume/926 etc....

    Why does it say C: is enabled to be defragged by W10 but not the other VOLUME listing which also says it's an SSD.. says "NEVER RUN"?

    Because it's a protected partition that the optimizer can't access.

    But W10 says "NEED OPTIMIZATION", why?

    That would be a partition you cannot access, like a recovery partition.

    Windows says that, because it doesn't have optimized that partition.
    It is also not needed as it is on the SSD

    So I should DESELECT C: so W10 cannot ever defrag C:?

    Probably because it's never been optimized and MS' programmers haven't polished that t--d yet.

    I don't have a recovery partition. So what else could that VOLUME be?

    Trimming is however useful for SSD's, but not really necessary.
    How do I tell W10 to "Trim" that SDD hard drive?

    Show us the map from Disk Management - it doesn't show 2 partitions?

    Access your disk management and you can see what partitions you have.
