More features have been added and problems in the past versions have been looked after. So, if you also want to configure windows 10, you would ask how to configure windows 10? If you buy a new PC that has Windows 10 Creators Update reinstalled on it or you want to install it now, you see Out of Box Experience. This experience of the Out of Box Experience or OOBE is actually the first thing that asks you to perform a number of tasks before you can actually use your PC. As part of the process, you choose your account, then connect to a wireless network if there is one, then choose a language, and adjust your privacy settings.
You can modify your windows privacy settings in detail in this process. The process has been made more transparent by Microsoft for users looking to have more control over the type of information they share with the developers.
Windows 10 setup and configuration
So, if you want to perform an upgrade to Windows 10 from a previous version such as windows 8 or windows 7 then you will not see new OOBE. But if you want a fresh windows 10 setup and configuration, you are greeted by a new, simplified, tabbed interface that is easily broken into 4 categories making things easier for you. These 4 categories are Basic, Network, Account, and services. You will be welcomed first by Microsoft’s digital assistant, Cortana. Cortana appears and takes voice commands and then guide you through the complete process of setting up and configuration.

If you don’t want to follow Cortana, you can disable this and choose otherwise. You will see the first screen as Basic, which lets you choose your language and keyboard. In the next screen you see Network, which will be available only if there is an active connection available and if there is none you can click ‘Skip for now’. And if there is one you would like to connect to you can select it and click on Connect and then enter the password.
Windows 10 Account Settings
After you set the network, you arrive on the Account screen. Here you have to set up a user name through which you can sign into the computer and manage its resources. You get 2 methods with Windows 10 of signing in: local account and Microsoft account. With Windows 10 setup you only get the option to set up a Microsoft Account if you are connected to the Internet. If there is no internet connection, the setup will default to a local account.
Local Account: Local account works exactly like credentials that can be used to log onto Windows 7 and windows earlier versions. With a local account you don’t get the modern benefits of Windows 10, such as PC Syncing, download apps ability from the Windows Store, and two-factor authentication. You also need to set a hint in case you forget your password for a local account.
Microsoft Account – with this account, a Microsoft email address linked with your Microsoft account is used. Generally this is a Hotmail.com, live.com, Msn.com, or outlook.com domains. You can also set up Windows 10 with a yahoo.com, gmail.com, or Icloud.com address, but for this you need to ensure that email address is associated with a Microsoft account.
