Work in progress

This is my attempt to maintain overview over Microsoft “Windows” setup. They keep changing the interface, so it will almost certainly have errors. Currently it's based on version 10 as of late 2020.

This page describes the things I do to get a Microsoft system up and running as little to my disliking as possible. It's really just for me, though if you have any comments, I'd be happy to hear them.
