Should the original intent of a question be broadened to make the answers more canonical?

Sometimes there's an existing question on a topic you want answers to, but the question asks for a solutions on a particular platform / operating system (e.g. Windows) different from what you use (e.g. Linux).

Then should you post a new (near-duplicate) question that asks the same thing for a different operating system? Or should you propose an edit to the question that broadens it to apply to all OSes?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
