Windows 10: Factory reset
If I did a factory reset on my laptop (which had Windows 8 when I purchased it recently) would it go back to Windows 8 or am I stuck with Windows 10?
Welcome to the forum it would go back to Windows 8
So what about the stuff that I've done on Windows Ie word documents, sorry probably a bit of a dim question
If you ever had serious problems, I would download the Windows 10 ISO for the version you have now (see Windows 10 ISO Download) so you have it ready either to repair your installation (repair installation) or a clean installation.
There are troubleshooting steps to take before you do this - post if you need advice. I also advise you to make frequent system images of your currently running system so you can easily restore your full working OS & programs. Most people on the forum us the excellent free Macrium Reflect software.
For documents photos etc everything will be wiped. Best bet is to save all docs etc to ms objective or Google drive give them time to sync and they will all be there on the new windows

Hello, I have an old laptop that has windows 10 installed on it. The previous owner did not delete the administrator account, and I do not have the password. Is there any way to factory reset the laptop without the administrator password? Thank you.
Upgraded my laptop to Windows 10 today, but it didn't ask me about whether or not I wanted to keep anything or not.. it just automatically kept my files.. but I wanted it to wipe everything clean with this install. So I'm on Windows 10...
So the Factory reset has been stuck at 2% for the last 8 hours.
