  1. HP Laptop Windows 10 need help- DESPERATE!


    Hello,

    I am trying to factory reset my windows 10 HP laptop. I have followed the tutorial on the Microsoft website to a T and it still says I need to clear more space (1 GB to be exact) in order to factory reset. I have deleted every app and program on my laptop that allows me to uninstall it, including all browsers, pics, etc. It's literally EMPTY. What can I do to get the factory reset option to actually work? I have a usb drive that has 265 GB of free space and I thought inserting that into my computer would free up some space but apparently I am wrong. any help is greatly appreciated, I am not exactly the best with computers.

    :)

    Hi there,

    Thank you for posting to Microsoft Community.

    1. May I know the version of Windows that you are using?
    2. What is the total hard disk space of your laptop?

    I would suggest you to take a backup of all your user data, after which you can try and perform the steps to

    Free up drive space in Windows 10
    . Check if that helps.

    Please get back to us if you need any further suggestions.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Unable to access HP Simple Pass to Sign-in to the computer on Windows 10

    Hi Jerome,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being a part of Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about accessing HP simple pass after upgrading to Windows 10. We will help you with this issue.

    • Do let us know the make and model of your computer?
    • Have you installed HP simple pass software on your computer?

    Try the below steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to download the latest HP Simple Pass software from the manufacturer's website install it and check if it helps.

    Step 2: If you have already installed the software, I suggest you to re-install it and check if the issue persists.

    Follow the steps to Access Recovery Manager:

    • Press Start button from the keyboard, type Recover Manager.
    • Select Recovery Manager from the list when it becomes available. Allow the action to continue, if prompted. The
      HP Recovery Manager opens.
    • Click Software program re-installation, Next , select
      HP SimplePass for the listing and then follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall application

    Hope it helps. Try the above and get back to us with an updated status of this issue for further assistance.
