Guide To Safely Installing Software

The installation of software is making a program ready for implementation.
It may seem like an easy task and it is, but if you are not 100% certain or you want to make sure that you have been installing software correctly then here are 5 steps to help you do it properly.

3 Easy Ways to Restart Your PC:

  1. The utmost important step is making sure that you have already installed anti-virus software on your computer. If you have not done this then follow the next steps as you install your anti-virus software program. You need a virus-detecting software program to make sure that the software you install on your device is clean and will not harm your device or steal credentials.
  2. Copy the software program files on to your computer. Save it on your desktop to make it easy to find. If you are still needing to download the program, then go to the download link on your internet application and click the download button and wait for it to finish downloading.
  3. Double-click the setup .exe file of the program you are wanting to install on your computer. You would find this file in the Downloads folder on your computer if you recently downloaded this file.
  4. As you go through the installation process make sure to read all the steps slowly if you have not done so before. Certain applications may ask you if you would like to install additional software or install the software with admin rights only. Choose only the options that you want and need.
  5. After the installation guide is finished, the software will be installed. You can now open the application from the Start screen.

The easiest way to find new software is by searching the Web. Always use the official installation from the software provider. Also, ensure you are using the latest version compatible with your operating system. Also ensure that you comply with the user agreement (Write about commercial and private use related to company devices) If you are not sure what software, you are looking for then try to describe the tasks that you need to complete with the software.

Remember to always delete any software that is downloaded to your device automatically in the download or installation process that you don't intend to use.
