    Resetting computer which originally had Win 7 and was updated to Win 1


    Is it possible to reset a computer which originally had Windows 7 and was upgraded to Windows 10? I want it back to the way it was AFTER the upgrade, just as if it had been a new computer with Win 10 installed. I have backed up all data files (and have all software for reinstallation) so want only Windows 10 on it.

    :)

  2. Are two of my computers so old that networking and homegrouping will not work with win 10

    I have two other questions about networking that were not answered. So maybe this is the answer below:

    Maybe because the two computers that had win 7 are so old about 2007or 2008 and really need to be updated so that networking and homegrouping will work. Although in the previous versions of win 8.1 and win 7 networking work pretty good. SEE BELOW

    Laptop Medion 2008 or 9 original win 7 new update win 10

    Yes.

    If asked for a product key, click "I don't have a product key", "skip", or "do this later". As long as you install the same version of Windows 10 you had before, it will activate automatically by retrieving the digital license from Microsoft activation servers when you connect to the internet.
