Re: Setting up A New Laptop Question Please.

I turned the computer on, waited a few moments to make sure I was at the
beginning of set-up, then press control windows enter to start narrator.
From there I was able to tab through the screens, make my preference choices
and finally, after everything was set up, I got to my desktop and was able
to then install jaws and do all the other things required such as set up
email, make choices for how I wanted files and folders displayed, and so on.
The screen to choose from available networks is either the first or second
screen after you begin. I can't remember which now. As I said yesterday, I'm
going to pick up a new lap top and record the set-up process and make the
file available so others can learn, but it won't be for a couple of weeks.

Hi Chris,
Did you have Narrator turned on? If not, how did you know what the Dell was
asking you?

You may need to install some updates.

As far as I know, you won't have to set up security if all you want to do is
use the program Mivcrosoft provides with Windows. As I recall, its system
Defender.

You may want to use something in addition such as Malware Bytes but System
Defender is a highly rated program and you will be unlikely to need
something else unless you want to use something like Malwaare Bytes.

You will have to go through some sort of procedure as has been discussed
here when you first use the computer. Aside from what you are discussing,
the only thing I can think of is to set up your computer to work with your
WIFI, unless at home, you are going to connect your computer to your router
by cable. I don't know enough about how you set up your computer to work
with your WIFI to discuss it. When I had my modem set up here, the
serviceman set up my laptop to work with it. I think AT&T does that for
customers when a router is connected by them.

Hi All,
I'm just curious if Windows Ten is already installed on my Laptop, what
might be left that I would need to do? I know I will need to set up an email
program, install my screen reader, set up security though. Just so I know
what to expect when I bring home my Laptop. I know how to plug it in
though! LOL!
Janet

Peace Be With You.
