If you have bought a new Windows 11 PC or are planning to purchase a new Windows 11 device, you must know that setting it up properly is important to give better performance and better user experience.
This includes not only setting up Windows 11 but also the settings and changes that one has to make before using it, here are some things that you should keep in mind while setting up your Windows 11 computer.
First of all, properly unbox the hardware, remove the plastic and other protective materials before starting it or connecting the cables, then connect the necessary cables, such as the power cord, peripherals, etc. Once connected, press the power button to turn on the computer.
Be careful with the initial setup of Windows 11
Once the device is powered on, you will be greeted with the Windows 11 setup screen, follow the onscreen instructions like selecting your region, language, keyboard layout, etc. Then go ahead and connect the device to the internet either via Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi.
Now, go through the setup process and enter your Microsoft account credentials to receive the latest features, updates, and apps. Once everything is done and ready, Windows 11 is now set up on your device and you can start using it.
Pay attention to your privacy and personalization settings
During the setup process, Windows 11 will present you with privacy and personalization settings. Take the time to review and customize these settings to your preferences. You can choose to enable or disable features such as personalized ads, diagnostic data sharing, and location services. Adjust these settings based on your comfort level and click on the setup screens accordingly.
Run Windows Update
Windows Update makes sure that the device is running the latest version of Windows 11 and also has the latest version of drivers installed in it for better and better performance.
Personalize your Windows 11 PC
If you agree with the default look and layout of Windows 11, that’s fine, however, we advise you to make the necessary changes to Windows 11 to make it more personal, for example, turn on dark mode and apply a dark theme from Windows 11 settings. Customize the taskbar and other settings.
Check your antivirus settings
Before anything, it is important to ensure that the system is secure and has the latest antivirus database. To do this, either review all settings of the antivirus software that came with the system or use Windows Defender to secure your Windows 11 computer from viruses and malware.
Download and install the necessary applications
To make your new Windows 11 PC more functional, install the essential software apps, install the web browser, music player, and other apps of your choice, just make sure you download them either through the Microsoft Store or from a trusted source.
