    Refreshing Windows 10


    I have a Windows 10 computer that I have been using 5 years and things have slowed. In the past I would reformat and reinstall Windows then set up everything. However a friend said just to refresh Windows through the app keeping all my files in place. Is the reformat route better or the same?

    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

    Refreshing Windows 10

    Suggestion - GPU-Z window Reload (refresh)

    Thanks! *Smile Refreshing Windows 10 :) Sounds fine (Ctrl+R as a 2nd way to do the same would be nice too).
    IF you do not want to overburden the main window GUI with the extra Refresh button I suggest, Refresh could be added to the system menu in top left instead, and/or into Settings.
    (such as add a button labeled "Refresh main tab" or similar text of your choosing to Settings)
