Join Joli Ballew for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Setting Up a New PC.
- [Voiceover] Welcome to this course. I'm excited to help you set up your new PC. Before we get started though, let's go over a few things that you should know first. Here are some things to keep in mind. You need to have turned on your computer and work through any initial setup processes, because we started the desktop. The first movie shows you how to register your device. So, you'll need to be connected to the internet. If you're not though, you can always return here after you are. The course is for beginners, although any level user can benefit from the information here.
And finally, we assume your computer is installed with some version of Windows 10. Most likely Home or Professional. So, if you're ready, let's move forward. It's going to be so exciting setting up your new PC.
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.
