Set up your new, work-from-home Windows 10 Pro PC

by

Congratulations on the purchase of your new computer! Let’s get you set up so you can work from home.

This guide assumes that you haven’t gone through any of the initial set up process and that your computer came with Windows 10 Pro installed, not Windows 10 Home. You’ll know you have Windows 10 Home of you don’t see the “Set up for an organization” step.

If you have started the setup process or your computer has Windows 10 Home, please open a support ticket by emailing support@workconsultants.com.

1. Turn on your computer!

2. When prompted, connect to your home wireless network.

3. When prompted, choose to set up your computer for an organization.

4. When prompted, sign-in with your Office 365 credentials. Even if you don’t think you have an Office 365 account, you probably do. Please supply your work email address and work computer password.

5. You may download Office by going to https://portal.office.com, then clicking Install Office then “Office 365 apps.” If you don’t see “Install Office,” there’s no need to keep reading these directions. Instead, please email support@workconsultants.com to let us know that your laptop is ready for us to configure.

That will get Office, including Outlook – arguably your most important communications tool – installed and configured on your laptop. If you need additional help, don’t hesitate to ask by emailing support@workconsultants.com!

Either way, please drop us a line so we can get our security suite on your new computer.
