    Windows 10

    Reset this PC


    Hey all,

    Just finished upgrading to 10 and I'd like to reset everything to factory. My question is: If I choose the restore factory settings option (which restores my PC to it's original OS), will that reset me back to Windows 8, or is my original OS now considered 10?

    If it works it will reset to W8. Whenever I have upgraded an OS the recovery partition does not work any more.

    A factory reset will roll your computer back to exactly with the OS and the additional installations that the factory rolled out onto it.
    Anything, everything you did after you took the computer home -- will be gone.
    One possible exception. If you partitioned the hard-drive into C-logical drive/partition, and a D-logical drive/partition; OS on C, your data on D, then possibly the factory reset will only roll back on C-partition and leave D-partition alone; however, with some rollbacks, that is not a given, some rollbacks will even rePartition all of the hard-drive back into one large C.
