    Setup New Dell Laptop with wrong Account User, HELP??


    Hi all, I just bought my wife a new Dell Latitude 3400. I started to set it up using my Windows login and such. I want to change everything I did and restart the whole setup process with her information. I would like to go beyond the change Administrator and change user ID. Can I RE-DO the whole startup process?

    1. So she can learn how it's done.
    2. She will have a better sense of ownership.
    3. Keep wife Happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you for any help,

    Rich

    Very thoughtful!

    Naturally you can add or delete accounts:
    Add Local Account or Microsoft Account in Windows 10
    Delete User Account in Windows 10

    If you really wanted to restart from 'as bought' you could perform a factory reset, assuming you have an OEM Recovery partition on the disk.

    You don't need a factory reset partition, and for an OEM pre-installed W10 there usually isn't one. Instead, the OEM customisations will be reinstalled as part of resetting the PC.

    Restore factory settings
    • This is to do a factory restore on an OEM PC that came preinstalled with Windows 10.
    • Reinstalls the version of Windows that your PC came with and removes your personal files.
    • Removes apps and drivers you installed.
    • Removes changes you made to settings.
    • Reinstalls any apps your PC manufacturer installed on your PC.
    • This option isn't available on all PCs.
