This shouldn’t take too long…

  1. Prepare USB with WXL
  2. Launch Browser and listen to ambience
  3. Setup HOST file
  4. Video Card Driver
  5. Personalize OS Tweaks
    • Tweaks for taskbar, registry, wallpaper, “snap to” mouse, keyboard software, etc
  6. Import Password Manager
    • I like EnPass because it can do everything “local”
  7. WIN + R than Shell:Startup and paste AHK Script
  8. Install Telegram / Signal, Spotify and visit Ninite / Chocolatey
  9. Restore Browser Settings and finish importing Addon Settings
  10. Create any RDC to control other computers in the house
  11. *Shrink some of your SSD into a partition and store your video games or linux flavor of the month there
  12. Configure Network to browse files on other home PCs
  13. Memorize ShareX hotkeys after you set everything up
  14. Install other misc. apps like XMind, Sublime, Clipchamp,
  15. WIN + R than sfc /scannow to fix anything wonky
  16. Restart PC and Enjoy…

This should about do-it and get you started.
