    Sorry if this has been asked a million times. I did a quick search and didn't find anything.

    Just purchased my MacBook today :D.

    When I first turned it on, I was outside of my home network so I just kind of clicked through everything.

    How do a restart the setup procedure when I get home? Do I need to manually do everything?

    Thanks.

    I believe there is a setup assistant in Applications/Utilities.

    You could also do an Archive and Install of the OS. It will replace your current installation of the OS, but keep everything else alone.

    Specifically, what do you need to setup? It may just be easier to set everything else up by just going around the System Preferences.

    I agree. The same thing happened to me when I bought my MacBook a year ago. You can accomplish everything the setup does pretty easily in the System Prefs

    System/Library/Core Services/Setup Assistant. Setup Assistant is by far the easiest way to set up a new Mac.
