Whether you’ve unpacked a new PC or did you update your software recently, when you first start your Windows 10 computer, there are some settings and presets that you will want to enable to ensure the best user experience.
First, sign in to your Microsoft account to sync your old settings and save any new settings you make in Windows 10. Then check for updates; If you just upgraded to an older version of Windows 10, you’ll want to do this to make sure you have the latest version of everything. To stay up-to-date, sign up for the Windows Insider program to get access to the latest features.
Here’s the next round of settings you’ll want to toggle:
- To go To show and retouch Night light mode to adjust the color temperature of the display during hours of darkness.
- To go Notifications and actions to turn off all those Microsoft alerts.
- To go Storage and turn on Storage direction to keep your system clean.
- Once your apps are installed, go to Taskbar and “Select which icons appear on the taskbar” to keep everything in order.
- Similarly, go to Applications and click Start up to decide which applications start automatically when the computer starts, which should be just one or two at most.
