Windows 10 Install Setup

Hey guys, just got around to installing Windows 10 Pro x64 and hoping it is the last time like we always do. There is so much to setup I can't remember from just a short while ago and I have several questions.

I have use Comcast for my ISP. I use MS Office Outlook for email. I have a separate Google email account that I use for logging into Google Chrome settings. What do you guys use to access MS Windows account? I always have MS wanting me to log in to view pics but I haven't set it up yet.

Also, I do custom Windows installation. During install I can deselect several options for networking allowances to MS. In fact after reading the descriptions I end up deselecting every one of them. Then in Windows I install O&O Shut Up 10. How many are using this proggy? How often do you monitor this program because I think MS re-enables settings after a while and O&OSH10 needs to be run again.

Also, I did have to re-register both my copies of Windows and Office. Also, I could not go on with the install unless I entered a registration no. so thankfully the new one I had got me through the installation at least. I used my smart phone to register both products which was pretty neat and less painful.

Re: Windows 10 Install Setup

I found that not logging into the MS account was less cumbersome. I tried it both ways. I do not use One Drive, or Outlook.com. All Office products working great including Outlook. Solitaire does nag me into logging in.

I cannot remember the last time I did a fresh install. I just make a system image with Macrium Reflect after a major update and then use that image if needed.

My two cents worth.

Re: Windows 10 Install Setup

I use XPS printing. If you don't have a printer attached, it creates a "print file" XPS document that you can port to a USB key, and take that to a printer.

Handy...if no printer available...or you're out of ink.

Re: Windows 10 Install Setup

Hey FV.

I do log in and stayed logged in to MSN. I have that set as Edge's homepage.

For Win10, I use a local account. Less complicated.

OK, I never tried a local account? What I'm I missing?

Re: Windows 10 Install Setup

You are missing MS's intrusions. Easy setup in Accounts. Try it, you'll like it.

Re: Windows 10 Install Setup

If your big on MS Office via the Cloud and you sync to Outlook.com, then logging into your MS account on startup is the way to go.

For me, I sync my Devices with MS Exchange, and none of my MS Office '16 apps are cloud centric.

I've been using Window live mail for all my pop mail accounts, so I'm always signed in there....plus I'm all in with google so I figure I'd share all my stuff equally with MS too...lol

Re: Windows 10 Install Setup

I also unchecked everything on my Win 10 install, but I have no clue what O&O Shutup 10 is or what a local account is - lol i'll have to investigate. Dont tell me Win 10 is phoning home without telling me... M$ wouldnt do that surely?

I dont use Office 365 and dread the day when I have to store all my stuff in the cloud. I dont actually find that I need to share much stuff between my devices and on those few occasions when I do I just transfer.
My devices seem to have different purposes really. Desktop for gaming and dev, laptop for work, ipads for browsing and reading. Whats to share?
At home my router shares my photo library locally.

Am I missing anything by avoiding the Cloud?

Google Photos is a Great cloud service, I have ever digital photo since 2001 backed up there, over 10000 in all...all for free...ever picture I put in my rig goes there automatically, my phone pictures, ipad pictures...what ever device you have it installed on. The search function is unbelievable, search for boats and ever picture of a boat shows up, search for a picture of my wife...same thing. For me I love it, if I was a crook or trying to hide something not so much, at my stage of life the convenience is worth it to me....like I said its unlimited for a picture 16 mega pixels and lower...any thing higher than 16megs they drop it to that. I just put 54 pictures of my house project in my rig and within 5 minutes there in Google photos where I can select whatever ones I want to share and Google gives me a link that I can give to people and they can view them or download them. To me thats a Great service....
