Settings To Prioritize On A New Windows 10 PC

Activate Restore Points

It may seem strange to go directly to activate a feature that is only used in case of a problem. Unfortunately, no one is immune to a problematic software installation or a finicky driver. Also, it is preferable to activate this option in the settings of Windows 10. To do this, type "create a restore point" in the Windows search bar then click on the menu. In the page that appears (system protection tab), click on "configure" then in the new window, and click on "activate system protection".

Disable Microsoft's Overly Curious Options

By default, Microsoft wants to know a lot about you in order to improve its products and be able to serve you targeted advertising. If this does not interest you, then take a look at the Windows 10 privacy options and deactivate all the options present in the "general" category. Your privacy thanks you already.

Change Your Default Browser

If you are one of the happy Microsoft Edge users, then you can move on to the next point. Otherwise, you will certainly want to change the default browser for Windows 10. After installing your favorite browser, go to the Windows settings, in the “applications” section. In the left menu, click on "default applications" then scroll to "web browser". Click on it to select the software of your choice.

Disable Software Launch At Startup

Windows 10 offers a very handy feature on paper: When you turn on your computer, the system reopens all the software you used during your last session. The problem is that it slows down Windows startup considerably, especially if you are using heavy software. The easiest way, in our opinion, is to deactivate this function. Go to the settings then click on "accounts". In the left menu, select "connection options" then uncheck the box "use my connection information to automatically complete the configuration of my device and reopen my applications after an update or a restart".

Optimize Your Computer's Storage

Windows 10 has a very practical feature: the system knows how to manage storage space by deleting unnecessary files. By default, this option is disabled but it can be very useful especially on small capacity SSDs which quickly become full. To activate it, go to the settings of Windows 10 then in "system" and in the "storage" tab. Then all you have to do is activate the option called "storage assistant".
