Hi all.

I got a new Laptop with Windows 10 and MS Office loaded on it.

Just wondering if there any MUST DO's to get up and running. Any recommended settings etc that you would recommend me to use. WIN10 is new to me and am slow in getting around so could do with some help beside You Tube etc

Many thanks in advance

Win10 and Office

Go to your local Library and ask for computer section. Grab a book on Windows 10.
Also, grab a book on Office: if it's Office 2010 avoid it.
I suggest selecting a book on Office 365

Set up a guest account and you use it.

You enter the password of the main one (administrator) when installing stuff etc.

Laptop lid closed and on docking station - 1 monitor either side -

Yes. I think 3 is the limit, but one of them can be the laptops own screen. You can put them in any order you want.

To be sure, find out whether your graphics card supports multiple monitors . Find the name of your card (Control Panel > Device Manager > Display Adapters) and Google it with the monitor setup you’re looking to run (e.g. “Nvidia GTX 770 four monitors”).

Really depends on the laptop. Some will drive 3 or more, some will only support 2.
