1. Windows 10 Initial setup
When you first install or turn on a brand new Windows 10 computer the first thing you have to do is setup a user account with a password. Microsoft also emphasize ( and almost make it seem required ) to use a Microsoft account, but you can still skip that step and use a local account instead:
After you create the account, you will be presented with a Settings option. most people just click on the Use Express settings button, but if you are concerned about privacy, then click on “Customize settings’ and uncheck whatever you don’t want Microsoft tracking you. There is a lot of things to toggle under the customization settings, but most are self explanatory.
After you are done customizing your privacy settings, then your desktop will load. After going through all those hoops, the default Windows 10 desktop will load.
