Janet,
You are confusing installing Win 10 and setting it up. The OS is installed but you have to set it up for your use. And if the person at Best Buy told you they have to install it after purchase, they lied! You are getting some very good advice from this list but it seems you are not listening. Good luck

Hi Gene,
Best Buy told me they have to always install Windows, as it is not installed until a customer buys one.

Computer manufacturers sell computers with Windows installed. You can buy
computers with no operating system installed, but those are specialized
items and are not what you will get buying computers made for the general
consumer.

Hi Monte,
I was told Windows 10 was installed, but when I was doing some research
online, I just happened to come across some reviews, and answers and
questions, so, I also saw directions how to install Windows 10 on the Laptop
I just bought, and I thought to myself, oh my goodness, I have to install
Windows ten too! LOL! I'm really not sure though if Windows is actually
installed or not though, but because I don't like that keyboard, I will just
take it back to Best Buy. I will try and buy another Laptop, and this time,
I will be fore sure if Windows is installed or not. I do remember when I
bought my last two Desktops, Windows 7 was not installed though. I had to
pay someone to come over and install it for me. Matter of fact, I'll never
forget when I bought my very first Desktop, in which was from Best Buy, but
low in behold, when they downloaded Windows XP, they actually downloaded a
virus on my Desktop though, so then because I had just bought it, and had no
internet service at home as of yet, they gave me another Desktop.

Absolutely, I am sure win 10 is already installed. I have never heard of a
brand name pc being sold without an operating system being already
installed.

Janet,
Power the laptop up and wait a minute for the booth process to begin. Then
press the ctrl Plus Windows key plus enter and soon Narrator will begin
talking.
I am quite sure that Windows 10 is on the machine and if you take your time
and listen to the prompts, you can get it set up. Many of us have done it
before you.
I also believe that the Office suite is a thirty day trial unless you paid
extra to have the package.
The important thing is not to let it intimidate you. LOL!

HI Marten,
Thank you for this, but I don't even know if Windows 10 is already
installed, although, I don't think so. The person who helped me online with
this, said Windows is already installed. I don't know the Lenovo key on the
keyboard in which I think I might need. I don't know the product key number
either. LOL! I don't know if Narrator will walk me through all the steps
or not though. I don't know if this was a good idea buying this Laptop
either. Thank you anyway. I greatly appreciate it.

Janet" ,

You can cturn on Narrator with ctrl-win-enter, but I am not sure with
wat screen the Lenovo will start.

You can try to start the laptop and after a while press this shortkey.

It can also be, that the laptop will ask to install windows and in this
case I am not sure if Narrator is working.

Regards, Marten

Hi Everyone,
Well, I thought I wasn't going to receive my new Lenovo IdeaPad until Jan
06-2021, but I just received it, and I don't know what to do with it now!
LOL! I do know it might take me sometime to learn the keys, as some of
them are long and some of them are wide, and the keys are a little larger
than what I am used to. The keys are also close to each other. Any
suggestions how to get started with this, meaning I need some speech, or
there isn't any point in me even turning it on! LOL! Someone mentioned
to turn on Narrator, but I don't remember how to turn it on.

Janet

Peace Be With You.
