Hello YouTube. This is Praveen for TechEmpty. Here in this video we are going to see the
procedure on how you can reset your Windows 10 Computer or Laptop in case if you have
any booting issues or trouble signing in or if you experience any kind of weird behaviour
with your Windows 10 Computer or Laptop. And if you haven’t subscribed to this channel

optical mouse or keyboard is not working after the Windows 10 boot or your computer is malfunctioning
after installing incompatible software or any problems after updating the Windows 10
operating system, you can reset Windows 10 computer to fix them. Remember, by following this procedure, your
files are safe, and they won’t get deleted after resetting the Windows 10 PC. To reset Windows 10 computer, firstly you
need to boot the machine in ‘Repair’ mode. There are different ways to do this but the
standard one is to hard reboot the computer for about 2-4 times. Press the reboot button for 2-4 times soon
after you see the Windows logo. When you do this, you will see this screen. When you are on the ‘Recovery’ window,
you can either choose ‘Restart’ or can ‘see the advanced repair options’. For now, choose ‘See Advanced Repair Options’. Here we have an option to exit and continue
to Windows 10, Use a USB Drive, network connection or Windows recovery DVD to repair the operating
system, few troubleshoot options like to reset the PC or to turn the computer off. Now choose ‘Troubleshoot’ to view the
available options. There we have an option to Reset the Windows
10 Computer and few advanced options like System Restore, Switching back to previous
build version, System Image Recovery, Startup Repair, Command Prompt, UEFI Firmware Settings
and an option to change Windows startup behavior. As we are trying to reset Windows 10 Computer,
let me go back and choose ‘Reset this PC’ Here you will see two major options. Choosing the first one will remove applications
and settings, but keeps your personal files or data. And the second one will remove all of your
personal files, apps, and settings completely. I won’t recommend you to go with the second
one because it will delete all your data that was stored in the operating system partition. To fix some settings and app compatibility
issues, just choose the first one which is ‘Keep my files’ Now pick the username and enter the outlook
account password to authenticate. When you authenticate the user, you see this
confirmation message on the screen. Resetting the Windows 10 Computer will remove
all apps and programs that didn’t come with this PC, Change settings back to their defaults
and reinstall Windows without removing your personal files. If you feel okay with the changes, choose
‘Reset’. This will take some time to reset the Windows
10 computer. For me, it took around 40 minutes and let
me fast-forward it. Once you see the login screen, sign in with
the PIN or password that you previously set for the chosen account. That’s it. You can find the uninstalled apps list from
the HTML file you see on the desktop. That’s it for this quick video. I hope you find this video useful. If you do, please hit the like button and
