After performing a Windows 11 custom/fresh install, you can complete the installation process by customizing your machine with its Out of the Box Experience (OOBE).

Out-of-Box Experience after installing Windows 11

Windows 11 introduces the Out of the Box Experience (OOBE), which allows users to introduce themselves to the OS or customize certain features before reaching the desktop. OOBE can be experienced when upgrading from a previous version of Windows, purchasing a new device preinstalled with Windows 11, or performing a clean install.

To complete the installation process, you must do several things: create or log into a user account, link a WiFi network or company domain, and customize the device to suit your needs, such as for work, school, or gaming. This step is not optional.

First, OOBE will ask you which keyboard layout you want to use. You can skip the secondary Keyboard layout. However, if your machine includes a touch screen function, you may also select a convenient layout for it.

You will also need to Accept the user agreement before proceeding to the next phase of the Windows 11 out-of-box experience.

Once you have chosen a keyboard layout and agreed to the license agreement, Windows will move on to the customization process. You can choose to Name your computer at this stage, though it is not required and you can easily skip this step.

The next customization is setting the Windows device as Personal or Work/School use. This would apply the necessary function and features tailored to your needs.

Windows 11 Out of the Box Experience would also require you to sign in with an MS account. If you have an active MS account or you want to create one, you can sign in here.

If you do not wish to use or sign up for Microsoft, you can disconnect your computer from the internet during the Setup stage. This will enable you to bypass signing in to your MS Account or creating an MS Account. Windows 11 will instead prompt you to create a User Account and a PIN.

After signing in with an MS account or bypassing the account setup stage, you will then ask to create a user account and PIN. It is a secure and fast way to log into Windows 11. 

Moreover, you can use both numbers and letters to create a PIN you can easily remember. The benefits are, you don’t have to worry about potentially compromising a password, which can easily occur if someone is peeking over your shoulder.

OOBE will provide you with additional personalization settings, and follow through with the prompts by selecting the features you want on your device. Once OOBE is done, you can simply reconnect to your network and update the OS.

“Voila! You have completed Windows 11 installation, congratulations!”
