    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?

    Never defrag an SSD, it would only damage the SSD thus shorten its life time.
    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.
