Hello, folks, Whether you’ve just unboxed a brand-new PC or updated your software recently, when you start up your computer with Windows 10 for the first time, there are some settings and presets you’ll want to enable to ensure the best user experience.
First, log in to your Microsoft account to sync your previous settings, and save any new settings you make in Windows 10. Then check for updates—if you just updated using an older version of Windows 10, you’ll want to do this to make sure you have the latest version of everything. To keep up-to-date, sign up for the Windows Insider Program to get access to the latest features.
Here are the next round of settings you’ll want to toggle: The Most Basic Things To Turn Off/On:
- Go to Display and tweak Night Light Mode to adjust the color temperature of your screen during dark hours.
- Go to Notifications & Actions to switch off all those Microsoft alerts.
- Go to Storage and turn on Storage Sense to keep your system clean.
- Once your apps are installed, go to Taskbar and “Select which icons appear in the taskbar” to keep everything looking neat.
- Similarly, go to Apps and click on Startup to decide which apps automatically launch when your computer starts up, which should be only one or two at most.
Right-click taskbar → Search → Show search icon
This will get rid of that giant ugly-ass search box on the taskbar but still leave it just a click away when you actually want to use it. Or, even better, click “Hidden” instead of “Show search icon”, then open the Start menu by clicking the button or pressing the Windows key and start typing to search; the search interface/experience is identical.
You can get rid of the Cortana button and Task View button the same way, and there’s no real need to have them on the taskbar since you can get to them with Win+C and Win+Tab, respectively. Personally, I only ever leave them enabled on touchscreen devices.
