Setting Up a New Windows 10 Machine

Here's my list of things to do with a new windows 10 box in 2018.

Let me know your list of "got to have programs" in the comments.)
 
Set Preferences
-----------
Add environmental variable "HOME" and set to "C:\home\mfincher" so Emacs can find me 
(In the File Explorer, right-click on "This PC", select "properties"/"Advanced system settings"/"Environment Variables...")
Add C:\home\mfincher\bin to environmental variable "Path"
Go into "File Explorer Options" and set "Hidden files and folders"/"Show hidden files..."
  "Display the full path in the title bar"
  and unset "Hide extensions for known file types"
