Never power off screen while plugged in. Turn off notifications. Check for updates. Download and install apps. Test, document, backup.
Promise myself I’m going to organize my clip library better 😅
Set plain/black desktop background. Turn off peek.

Change the color setting to the full range so that black is black
Install sysinternals, replace task manager with process explorer, usual Blackviper registry tweaks, that's like the bare minimum
This is a good guide, written for Touch designer but most of it should be relevant https://derivative.ca/community-post/show-machine-setup-permanent-and-temporary-art-installations-windows-10/63572
Turn off automatic updates
Install MediaInfo, Icaros for DXV3 thumbnails, Free File Sync, Spacesniffer
Add settings and task manager to the Taskbar.

mute the SYSTEM SOUND and turn off all the nofications
Black wallpaper, mute windows sounds, disable firewall and windows defender, hide taskbar in extended, never go to sleep or shut down the display, disable xbox game mode/nivida overlay etc., get a ninite with all the essential software, install avast driver updater, disable peek, remove all blootware and stuff i don't need. There's probably more but I'd say this is kind of the essential stuff for me.
