In a previous post, we showed how to install Windows 10 on a new Android, however, this time around, we are going to discuss it in relation to PCs that don't already have an operating system (OS) yet. The tools you need include an ISO file of the OS and license key. Once you're PC is ready, the next step is to add and use the applications you need.

One of the most important tools for computer users is a database. It allows your programs to store and manage files and other assets. This data process lets them run as expected.

MongoDB is a commonly used database by users worldwide, with MongoDB Atlas as one of its service options. It is a fully managed cloud database service that provides a simple and secure way to deploy, manage, and scale your MongoDB database. In this article, you will learn the process of setting up and using MongoDB Atlas on your PC.


Before you begin, ensure you have the following:

  1. A MongoDB Atlas account. You can sign up and try MongoDB via their website.
  2. PC with internet access. Make sure your PC is connected to the internet.

Step 1: Create a MongoDB Atlas Cluster

  • Login to MongoDB Atlas:
  • Visit the MongoDB website and log in to your account.
  • Create a New Cluster:
  • Click on the "Build a Cluster" button.
  • Choose the provider, region, and cluster configuration that suits your needs. Default options include AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure.
  • Click "Create Cluster" to initiate the cluster creation process.
  • Monitor Cluster Creation:
  • Once the cluster creation is initiated, you can monitor its progress on the dashboard.
  • Wait for Cluster to be Ready:
  • It may take a few minutes for your cluster to be ready. Refresh the page to see the current status.

Step 2: Configure Security Settings

  • Navigate to Security:
  • In the left-hand menu, go to "Database Access" under the "Security" section.
  • Add Database User:
  • Click on "Add a Database User" and enter a username and password for your database user. Ensure you use a strong password.
  • IP Whitelist:
  • Add your IP address to the IP Whitelist. This ensures that only connections from specified IP addresses can access your cluster.

Step 3: Connect to Your Cluster

  • Cluster Overview:
  • Go to the "Clusters" section and click on your cluster name to view the cluster overview.
  • Connect to Cluster:
  • Click the "Connect" button and choose "Connect Your Application."
  • Get Connection String:
  • Copy the connection string. It will look like this:


  • Replace <username> and <password> with the credentials you set up earlier.

Step 4: Connect to MongoDB Atlas from PC

1. Install MongoDB Driver:

If you haven't installed the MongoDB driver for your preferred programming language, install it. For example, if you're using Node.js, you can install the driver using:

npm install mongodb

2. Connect to MongoDB Atlas in Code:

Use the connection string to connect to MongoDB Atlas from your application code. Here's a Node.js example:

const MongoClient = require('mongodb').MongoClient;

const uri = "your_connection_string";

const client = new MongoClient(uri, { useNewUrlParser: true, useUnifiedTopology: true });

client.connect(err => {

  if (err) {

    console.error("Error connecting to MongoDB Atlas:", err);

  } else {

    console.log("Connected to MongoDB Atlas!");

    // Perform database operations here




Step 5: Explore MongoDB Atlas with Compass (Optional)

MongoDB Compass is a graphical user interface for MongoDB. It's an optional add-on but it can enhance your database management experience. You can use it to visually explore your MongoDB data.

  • Open MongoDB Compass:
  • Launch MongoDB Compass and click on "New Connection."
  • Enter Connection Details:
  • Enter the connection details, including the connection string, and click "Connect."
  • Data:
  • Use MongoDB Compass to explore your databases, collections, and documents.

Now you've successfully set up and connected to MongoDB Atlas on your PC. You can start building and managing your MongoDB databases with ease.

Since you have a database infrastructure ready, you can do other configurations like improving the performance of your rig. To do this effectively, focus on its main use such as video editing, gaming, or streaming. This is possible because you have a database on the backend that caters to your requirements. Whether you're developing or using applications, MongoDB Atlas provides a scalable and flexible solution for your database needs.
