43 things to do after setting up a Mac

Set up new MacBook Pro

iDB founder Sebastien wrote an article in which he shared over 30 things he always does when setting up a new iPhone. I recently bought a new Apple Silicon MacBook Pro and an M2 Mac mini, and inspired by his article, I thought I'd do a similar one for Mac.

I have been using a Mac for over eight years now. Over the time, I have developed some habits like using Hot Corners, multiple virtual desktops, and more.

Whenever I have to switch to a different Mac, I change several settings, make customizations, and tweak the following things without fail to make the computer truly mine and have it behave the way I prefer.

Please have a look at the things I do after setting up my Mac, and don't forget to let us know what setting you like to tweak right off the bat.
