I bought a new computer last year, so here’s what I did in the beginning, and If you also bought a new computer with Windows 10, here are some tips for you.

You should first check your operating system update settings. To do this, you need to open Settings -> Update and Security -> Windows Update. Here you can set the time you are at the computer, so that it does not restart just when you need it most. Check the operating mode and power consumption

Another very important thing with any computer is energy saving. To see what's going on, select Settings -> System -> Power & Sleep. At this point, set when your screen will turn off. If you select Additional Power Settings, you can select a special mode that suits you.

Your computer name appears in applications such as OneDrive, Microsoft Web Services, and more. To change it, press Windows + X and select System -> About -> Rename this PC to give it a new name. Restart the computer.

Just in case, you should use USB to "recover" your computer if something interferes with its normal operation. To do this, you need to type recovery in the search box, then select Recovery Drive, and tick Back Up System Files.

You will then be able to run the Reset this PC and Windows Recovery Environment tool.

Bloatware is a common name for applications that come pre-installed on your computer. Some of them are test versions of antivirus, mini-games or even Microsoft Office. However, they often just take up too much space and are of no use. This is primarily related to advertising.

To deactivate the ads in the Start menu, select Settings -> Personalization -> Start -> turn off Show suggestions occasionally in Start.

To deactivate ads on the lock screen, select Settings -> Personalization -> Lock screen -> Picture or Slideshow.

For ads in the Taskbar, select Settings -> System -> Notifications & actions -> turn off Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows.

In addition to this, you can also turn off Show me the Windows welcome experience after updates and when I sign in. If you have any good advice in general for buying a computer, it is not necessary to be professional, it is enough for the advice to be honest and useful, and I thank you in advance for that.

At first I made mistakes because I worked in Linux but after a couple of days everything went as it should. For 3 years of using Win10 without updating and reinstalling the system I had no problems.

Will you take your accu out if place your laptop on charger. Non Mac laptops often have short battery life and I guess this is worth taking it out and use only once travel?
