    I have a brand new PC on my network. It seems to me that I ought to be able to access files, apps, etc. on my old PC from my new PC but have no idea how to do this. Sync is on and apparently working but the new PC is bare. Must I re-download all apps to new PC?

    New PC demands that I use Edge. OS is Win10.

    Thanks for any help

    You can't simply copy Apps from one PC to another, you will have to install them onto the new PC.

    You can copy data files like pictures and documents though.

    As you can see in Settings > Accounts > Sync, nowhere is it mentioned that you can sync apps. You can copy program installers over to your new PC using a USB memory stick.
