Picture it: you pull out that brand-new laptop you bought after reading our latest buying guide and plug it in for the very first time. Now it’s just a matter of breezing your way through the Windows setup process, and you’re ready to rock, right? Not really. Your notebook isn’t really ready  —  or truly yours  — until you do some tweaking. Here are a few things to consider when setting up your new laptop.

1. Type “updates” in the search box.

2. Click “Check for updates.”

3. If Windows doesn’t automatically search for updates, select the “Check for updates” box. 

Uninstall bloatware
