DoctorLaptop Open Thru The Holidays To Set Up Your New Devices: Lots of you will be receiving new computers/tablets from Santa, and will be anxious to start using them asap. You will save yourself trouble in the long run if you take the time now to get them setup correctly from the start. Doing a correct initial setup is far better than trying to sort out and fix errors resulting from an incorrect setup done because you were in a hurry to try out your new gift. I will be closed on Christmas Day and New Years Day. Other days I will be available to get your new devices setup correctly and to copy your data over to them. All work by appointment. Please make appointments by phone call to 675 993 069. No calls before 11am answered, missed calls returned asap. For email support questions send to doctorlaptop@protonmail.com ; be sure to include the make and model numbers of devices, and what version of Windows/Apple/Linux you are using. And here is a hint for those of you who took the time to read down this far. When setting up a new Windows 10 computer, you can avoid the requirement of connecting it to the Microsoft network with an Outlook.com email address, and avoid many of the intrusive Win 10 snooping features, by not connecting your computer to the internet until after the initial setup has been completed. When the setup screen gets to the stage where it asks you to connect to the internet, do not do so. There is always a way to proceed without connecting the internet. In some cases there is a button in the lower left of the screen that says “skip this step”, if no such button, just click “next” in the lower right of the screen. After you have completed the setup, and restarted the unit, then you can connect to the internet. Merry Christmas everybody! Naythan/Torrox Costa
