I recently bought a new M.2 SSD to extend the storage of my Windows desktop (getting ready for the Elden Ring DLC). Here is a quick list of the software I installed on my new clean Windows setup.

Software List

  • Steam
    • Click “Download” on the game page in the library.
    • Pause the download.
    • Check that the directory is created in Steam/steamapps/common/….
    • Uninstall the game from Steam.
    • Move the old game directory to replace the newly created empty directory.
    • Click “Download” again. Steam will skip the download and start verifying the files.
  • Chrome
    • Install the uBlock extension.
    • Add –incognito to the shortcut for incognito mode.
  • Firefox
  • Notepad++

…Yeah… that’s all for now.
