Windows 10: Question on "Reset this PC" option. Solved

    Question on "Reset this PC" option.


    If I use the "Reset this PC" option, will it create a clean registry or will it contain old leftover data? I will use the remove all file/data option.

    Hello Manigue,

    A reset of Windows will wipe everything and set Windows back to default. It's very similar to a clean install.

    Thanks Brink. That is exactly what I want to do on an old laptop, Just want to make sure the "Registry" is clear of all old leftover data/values.
