  1. Resetting windows 10 laptop


    So I’m trying to sell my previous laptop but obviously I need to reset it. I’ve been trying to reset it for a long time and nothing seems to work. At all.

    So I’ve reset it and it gave me a “Other User” login screen. I’ve reset it and it’s given me an administrator login screen which I have no idea what the password even is. I’ve tried shift-restarting (from the login pages) and tried resetting from there. Once I tried resetting it from there it just gives me a prompt saying it can’t reset and no changes have been made.

    Can anyone please help, this has been an issue for me for a while already and I just want this laptop off my hands.

    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
