Laptop Set-up Checklist
After powering on your new PC, make sure to do the following:
1. Log into Windows.
2. Download and install all available Windows 10 updates by clicking the start menu button and typing "Check for updates" in the field labeled Type here to search. Click the Check for Updates icon that appears in the start menu.
Click Install Now to process any pending updates. You may be required to restart your laptop to complete the process.
3. Protect your device from malware by installing your family's preferred antivirus software or using Windows Security, which comes built in.
If you plan to use Windows Security, search for "Windows Security" in the Start Menu and open the app. When the app opens, look for any yellow or red flags that indicate recommended or required actions.
