Setting up a new Windows 10 Installation

Setting up a windows install can be a pretty involved process. There are a lot of gotchas in the process that I always forget about when setting up a new installation. So here is a post of all the things that I do at the start to serve as a reminder to myself for the things I need to do when I get a new machine.

I intend to have this post serve a living document which I’ll update periodically as I make changes to my Windows 10 installations so I can refer back to it in the future.
