Windows 10: reset this pc help before i do
reset this pc help before i do
Im new to windows 10. I bought a used laptop acer aspire v3 731 4695 last week and i really like it. Also it was updated to windows 10 already before i got it. All is working very well but the previous owners name pops up on various things and i would like to start over with fresh windows 10 to get rid of all his name coming up.
I see 10 offers 2 options for resetting windows in settings. One to save my files and the 2nd to delete everything.
Which one should i choose? And will it remove the windows 10 upgrade?
Before i do it ill put all my photos, vlc player, and gopro software on a usb drive to save.
Also he has changed the cd drive to dvdrw/bluray. Will the bluray work after the refresh of windows since it didnt come original?
You can do a refresh and remove everything. No it won't remove Windows 10 from your computer as it just like a factory reset. Yes your blue ray and DVD player will still work. You may or may not have to install video drivers or software to watch blue ray.
Great thanks for the help, i feel better about trying it out later!
Also forgot to ask, will i need a recovery cd or usb or somthing with 10 recovery on it? I do not have any recovery cd or anything. Or will it run fine without?
It will run without either one of those.
Thanks for the help, everything went perfectly and its like new!
That's good to hear . Glad everything worked out great for you!!

If one were to apply this reset, would the bookmarks/passwords be restored with synch setting, or would one lose all of them?
