Built my pc a year ago and never put a SSD in it. Thought it was time to buy one. Now that it is ordered I have no clue how to transfer my OS and my files onto the SSD. I'm guessing I will have to go into the bios and put that my pc should load the SSD first then my hard drive. Does that mean I need to delete my OS on my hard drive or do anything special to make sure I don't f@ck my Pc. Any suggestions help

When i got my ssd i did a clean install of windows 10. You can still access your games and files from your hard drive. There is honestly no reason to put any more than your OS and a few frequently used programs on it.
