Get a new Windows 10 PC ready for general home use, family sharing, or a small office.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Joli Ballew, best selling author, college professor, and Windows enthusiast. So, you have a brand new computer, now what? Well, you'll want to start by registering it, and then personalizing it. You'll need to connect to the internet too, and likely setup a backup plan. I'm going to walk you through the steps required to make your PC uniquely yours. All of these tasks are part of setting up a new PC, and in this course, I'll show you how to do all of this and more.
Taking the time to configure your new computer is important, because the better it meets your needs, the better your experience will be. I'll offer suggestions on many fronts, from personalizing your account, to joining networks, to installing software, and more. Beyond making the PC work better for you, you'll also learn how to setup a backup system, so you can recover from a disaster. You'll learn how to create accounts, and keep users data safe and secure. There's a lot to learn, but don't worry, you can't mess anything up.
There's always a way to undo any change you make, so relax and have some fun. Let's get started.
Expert author Joli Ballew then explores important backup and recovery options, including how to configure and use System Restore. She shows how to remove all the unnecessary and unwanted software and then add your desired software and apps.
