    Giving PC to friend

    Hi Whipemkealoha, reset Windows 10, removing everything before giving that to your friend. That will securely remove your data and your friend will essentially have a new PC . ..

    Press the Shift Key and click Restart

    Your PC will boot into the Windows Recovery Environment

    Go to Troubleshoot - Advanced Options - Reset this PC

    Choose to keep nothing

    Then start the Reset

    Where will I go back to with RESET MY PC

    Hi,

    I have two Windows 10 pc's. Both with 1607


    • Desktop that came from Windows 7.


    • Laptop that I bought with Windows 10 first version (1507).

    A friend of mine told my about the options


    • RESET MY PC – Keep my files

    • RESET MY PC – Remove everything.
    Is it true that whatever option I choose I will get back Windows 7 on my desktop en Windows 10 (1507) on my laptop?

    Thx

    Unable to reset the pc

    Hello,

    If you are having that message while trying to reset your computer, We suggest you to create an installation media for Windows 10 using Media
    Creation Tool
    and perform a Reset.

    Once the installation media is created, follow the steps below:

    • Insert the installation media you created, and then restart your PC.
    • On the Install Windows screen, select Repair your computer.
    • On the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot. From there, you can use Safe Mode. Select
      Advanced Options >Reset This PC>Remove everything.
    • After the reset is complete, check for status.

    Give us an update on what happens.
