    When you first install Windows 10 on your new laptop/pc...


    When you first install Windows 10 on your new laptop/pc... NOW what are the first 10 websites that you visit? And the first 5 software you download? and first 10 Windows settings that you change?

    example: first two things i'd do is
    (windows key + r) -> "iexplorer.exe" to download firefox from firefox.com
    right click windows start menu button -> power options -> change it to high performance instead of balanced

    1. Backup and archive clean installation using Macrium Reflect Free. Set backup schedule to external drive (desktop PC)
    2. Install Classic Shell / Open Shell
    3. Install Autoruns and check / disable 3rd party stuff not needed
    4. Install AdwCleaner and Malwarebytes for offline security scans to augment Defender
    5. Run Belarc Advisor to check configuration and for missing updates
    6. Install Wise Disk Cleaner which cleans up files missed by Disk Clean

    Drivers, drivers and then some more drivers first. Use Edge to download Firefox and total Commander to move everything around.
