    How to set up a laptop. Keeping a clean and simple desktop

    Formatting/Fresh Install:
    - I do the install in offline mode (without internet) so I don't have to log in with a Microsoft account.
    - I turn off Cortana, history and disable all the Microsoft fluff.

    Apps:
    - I remove every app I can except for Media Codecs (for video editing)
    - Don't remove Cortana, MS Store, or Windows defender with 3rd party apps. That'll break stuff.
    - I use Ninite.com to get an installer package. It's clean and free of malware/bloatare
    - I don't bother with 3rd party virus Apps. Most of them are awful.

    Centering Taskbar:
    - I turn off the search bar, Cortana and the task view buttons.
    - When you center the app icons, keep in mind that open apps will add to the tail end of it.

    Rainmeter: (rainmeter.net)
    - The skin I use is Mond. And I use my own font with it.
    - The ones with heavy animations tend to use a ton of resources. Avoid those if you need to keep it light.

How to turn Windows into a more usable ChromeOS. I’m teasing, but I do like ChromeOS except for it being dependent on Google apps and services. Dave’s Windows setup is a nice middle ground.

The whole video is amazing Dave.. Didn't konw I could do this much. However, I'd not recommend to the folks out there, having Dell and that too having MaxxAudioPro thingy.. It suddenly stops working.. Earphone don't get detected.. and I'll have to restart my laptop for that. Don't know what made it like that. So, skip toggling off the startup button for Waves thingy. Cheers.

For Dave's method of centering. I'm not sure the apps will stay centered when you open other ones. To solve that just center them using Task Bar X. If you use Rainmeter there is actually a skin you can download for Task Bar X

Good info but I noticed a trend when it comes to your reviews, you talk about aesthetics way more than the technology implemented in the devices you review. 95 percent about aesthetics 5 percent about the technology and when you talk about the tech you don't even go into depth about the TDP or PCIe lanes allocated between the m.2 slots allowing users to know if they can take advantage of being able to raid 0 their nvme drives or if there will be limitations like for example, only 4 PCIe lanes being split between 2 of the M.2 slots allowing only a max of 2.5tb even when you have two 2tb sticks taking up both slots with physically 4 tb of space that should be available. We can clearly see what the outside of the laptop looks like, tell us the technical details not the rudimentary basic spec info like you would read from a best buy brochure. Don't just tell us battery life and how it looks and what processor and video card it has. Tell us the specs of the battery like kwh how long it takes to charge and how long it will last on a heavy use case, Tell us about the architecture of the processor and its max TDP, cores, threads, PCIe lanes and the number of M.2 slots on the board and how many pcie lanes are allocated to each one. Tell us if the processor is unlocked and can be overclocked. same with the video card. tell us about the Panel being used and the NIT rating, not just the refresh rate and resolution. tell us when if ram is soldered onto the board and allows only one slot to be upgradeable. give us some benchmarks compared to other devices in the same class because they all dont all perform the same even if on paper they are the same specs.
