In One Hour Or Less, Learn How To Set Up A New Windows 10 PC Perfectly

For long-time PC users, a system restore is a time-honored tradition, a way to breathe new life into an outdated PC and eliminate annoyances brought on by third-party applications. This is the most recent complete update to the original edition, which I first published five years earlier. It takes into account the updates that come with Windows 10 Home Product Key benefits.

You will have to begin by installing Windows 10 on an unformatted or fresh formatted machine drive. Build a bootable USB drive by downloading the installer files for the new edition from the Download Windows 10 page and using the Media Creation Tool.

  1. Inspect The Network, The Windows Version, And The Activation Status.

You would not even be able to do anything unless you have a functioning Internet connection. In reality, an Internet connection is required for the majority of the following phase on this checklist.

The constructed Windows 10 network drivers work fine on most PCs sold in the last five years. Windows Setup would use an established usb network or ask you for Wi-Fi credentials as you go through Out of Box Experience (OOBE) section of the procedure. Go to Settings > Network & Internet > Status after you’ve completed the setup and landed at the Windows desktop. You’re ready to go if you see anything like this.

  1. Authenticate Your Account With Multi-Factor Authentication

When you’re setting up a PC for your company’s IT department, you’ll must follow their directions, which would almost certainly include an Azure AD account. However, for a personal computer, I suggest creating a free Microsoft account. Then, to secure your account from being hacked by someone who exploits or phishes your information, allow two-step verification. This setting (also known as multi-factor encryption or two-factor verification) makes gaining access to the account even more difficult for an attacker.

  1. Set Bitlocker Authentication For Your Computer Drive To On.

Encoding the content of your windows system saves you from a nightmare scenario: your computer is lost or stolen, and a thief can boot from a portable device and search its contents without consequence. The best defense is to protect the overall system so that only you or anyone with the encryption key can access its contents.

  1. Customize Windows Update Configurations And Check For Updates

The Windows 10 Pro Product Key Setup software automatically downloads the most recent monthly cumulative update when you install the new edition of Windows 10. This safeguard safeguards you in the event that the most recent update contains a critical flaw that prevents your device from functioning properly. (Theoretically, an update that has been out for at least 30 days becomes less likely to be influenced by such a problem.)

So now is the time to go to Windows Update and download the most recent accumulated update as well as any other ongoing updates. If you have an older version of Windows 10, you might be given the most recent feature update.

  1. Get Up-To-Date Device Drivers

There’s no need to worry about drivers because Windows 10 does a fantastic process of getting and installing drivers for almost every element in a modern PC. Even so, it’s worth testing Device Manager to determine if your machine has any unknown gadgets that don’t come with drivers.

First things first. Make sure System Restore is turned on before installing the new software or making some other system adjustments. To access the Run box, click Windows key+R, then type the code rstrui and press Enter. If you get a message like this, press System Security to open the System Restoration settings, then Configure and Switch on Machine Protection.
