I just had to do a fresh windows install – and let me tell you the win11 installer doesn’t work right either – so i had to go to 10 first. but that’s a separate issue.
Installed photoshop, my printer, discord, and spotify from the store.
This is flat out ridiculous. My computer would be chugging along with all this stuff constantly running. Yes, this is third parties mostly – but there’s a reason I just tell everyone to get a MacBook if they want a laptop. The Windows experience is dreadful for the average user. What can MS do to rectify this sort of thing?
