H/D with Windows 10 in another PC?

Hi I am getting a 2nd hand pc but I want the H/d with wins 10 and all applications from the old pc to be swapped in the new one. How do I do this as the original Wins 10 H/d will probably not recognize the components in the new one and so won't work. Help and info much needed. Obvious reason being I don't want to lose my programmes and applications from the original.

Sorry to disappoint you Rick but it'll be a miracle if you get it to work. If it were reasonably straightforward then everyone would be doing that when they get a new computer.

The licensing issue mentioned by Lotvic is likely to be another massive hurdle.

Cheers for the good news guys. Guess I'll just have to find another way.
