The instructions are also phrased conveniently and include statements like “I have opted out of the Microsoft Customer Experience Improvement Program”, “I do not connect any devices via Bluetooth” and “I do not want Windows to routinely defrag my hard disk.” This makes it very easy for the regular PC user to understand.
