    Reloading Win10 without losing data or apps


    My Win10 installation is misbehaving in various minor ways. I've run sfc/scannow and that turns out clear. A possible solution is to reinstall windows without disturbing apps and existing data. I found what appears to be a pretty clear video on u-Tube but before I go ahead. I just want to check. My version is Win 10 Pro 1909 - the package you can download from the M/S site is 20H2 (a numbering system I've not come across before). Has anyone had experience of re-installing Win10 without losing data? Also the instructions are quite clear - the version numbers have to be the same - so where can I find ver 1909 please?

    :)

    unexplained page reloads erases the comments I'm writing.

    Hi Patrick,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forum.



    • Does the issue persist on all browsers?


    If the issue is specific to a particular webpage, it could be due to the auto refresh feature of that webpage. A few keys/key combinations like
    ‘F5’ or ‘Ctrl+R’ can also reload a webpage.
    I suggest you to use your favorite search engine and look for an app that records the keystrokes, so that you can avoid hitting it in future.



    Meanwhile, you may also want to go through
    Record steps to reproduce a problem and see if it’s helpful.



    Clipboard is a data buffer used for short-term data storage between documents or applications used by cut, copy and paste. It will only save the data that was once copied or cut. Since the data was not copied or cut, clipboard
    won’t have the data.



    Regards,
