This all software must work in all version of Windows OS, but be sure to select your version of Windows (32-bit or 64-bit). After you make a format you need first to configure the drivers followed by the last update for Windows version, then essential software, and others software that different importance from person to another (depend on needed software).

  • Drivers: A driver is a software that allows your computer to communicate with hardware devices. Without drivers, the devices you connect to your computer—for example, a mouse or external hard drive—won’t work properly. Windows can automatically check if there are drivers available for new devices that you connect to your computer.
    • Recommended Way: This is the best way among the others, this way varies from model to another and version as well, This way based on main drivers recommended from bad company, by going to brand of the laptop/desktop and select “Supporting and Drivers” or something related. and type your model and get the drivers (32-bit and 64-bit), some brand offer Auto-detect missing driver like “HP”.
    • Good Way: In this method no need to any external software, to download and install the driver in a way built-in all Windows OS, there is two way to do it,
      • First: In desktop hit right-click on “My Computer” or “This PC” and select Manage > then from Computer Management (Local)/System Tools select Device Manager
      • Second: In “Control Panel” select “Device Manager” (View by Large icons)
      • Third: Click on Windows key + R (open run program) type: “devmgmt.msc”.
    • Go to Unknown software and hit right-click and select “Update driver software..” > to search online for driver select “1-Search automatically for updated driver software” then it will start searching online and install, while to install the driver from CD or download it from internet select “2-Browse my computer for Driver Software” then select browse and choose the file and it will install it (it very important at installing driver not supported to OS), and in case of many update to select the specific one hit “2-Let me pick from a list of devices on my computer”  then select the wanted version and hit “Next” and it will install automatically. [It also help to check the missing drivers to install].
    • Special tips: if the driver not update then hit right-click on the unknown driver and select “Properties” then go to “Details” from upper-bar and choose “Property:Compatible Ids” and in “Value” copy the first one and search on Google to get the name (try to download), then go to laptop/computer brand and search for download the driver for specific version of windows selected (need to type machine code).
  • Update: Before start installing any programs you must check if update required to avoid any error further say file missing. Because update installs much important software assisted you during the installation. (believe me no one like to stuck with YouTube video tech you how to fix, when it can be ended by one-click). What you need to do:(Windows key + I: open control panel) – keep the “Windows Defender” or “Windows Security Essential” to avoid viruses and Malware. 
    • Windows xp/7/8/8.1: Just go to “Control Panel” > (View by Large icons) select “Windows Update” then select the update you want to install and hit “Install” and wait until finish it may require restarting do it and that’s it. 
    • Windows 10: Just go to System Setting > select “Update & security” and hit check for update.
  • Essential Software Are the most wanted programs for all windows. From my experience at working 2 years in this field, I noticed that a few of software program I install after formatting for every user, based on this I will type the name and few details with website or download link, I prefer to download respectively.
