    Donating/Selling Computer & Microsoft Store Library


    After a clean install or any of the methods Microsoft has to clean the HDD and reinstall Windows the Microsoft Store My Library always shows all the previous Apps that were pre-installed by Microsoft and Apps I personally used and or tried ,sure they can be hidden but also can be unhidden , is there any way to clear the My Library so the next person who buys or receives the donated PC will not have the insanely long My Library list of preinstalled bloatware Apps and my own Apps I tried and or used ?

    :)

    You should just factory reset, choose to clean the drive and set it up with a dummy account for logging in. See steps:
