Reinstalling Windows isn’t as simple as just clicking through an installer. You’ll want to have important data backed up first, and then you’ll need installation media and a product key before continuing—and those are just the basics. This checklist will walk you through reinstalling Windows and ensure you won’t forget anything.
You may also want to ensure programs you use are backing up your critical settings, like your browser’s data. For example, if you use Chrome, ensure you’ve signed into Chrome with your Google account and enabled the browser sync features. This ensures your bookmarks and other data can be accessed afterwards. Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge have similar sync features.
Consider all the important data on your computer and ensure it’s backed up. If you’re still using POP3 for your email, which you shouldn’t be, all your emails may be stored on your PC and need to be backed up before continuing. If you’re using web-based email or even just IMAP in a desktop email client, your emails are stored with your email service and you don’t need to back them up. If you play a lot of PC games, check whether those games sync their saves online with a feature like Steam Cloud, or whether you need to back them up yourself.
You can back up many program’s settings at once through backing up your AppData folder, or by backing up individual folders in AppData.Read More...
