  1. resetting Windows 10 to factory settings while not an admin


    I have a user who somehow reset his surface with windows 10 back to factory settings (out of the box lets set up the pen, wireless etc)


    is there a way to lock this down so employees cannot tamper with their device upon a termination?

    :)

    Reset to factory settings


    No I love Windows 10.....but my computer was acting strange so I thought I would do a factory reset and put Windows 10 back onto my computer.

    If I do create a bootable Windows 10 would I lose the recover drive information that comes with the computer?

    Could you give me the steps to create a bootable of Windows 10.....I asked HP if there was anyway I could get Windows 10 put on it while they had it and they said no.

    Thank you.
