    I'm on the latest Version 1511 Build 10586.420 and don't see the Reset option. Will the Reset feature be available on the major update from 2nd August?

    Hello Steve,

    The "Reset an App" feature in the tutorial on the first page here is only available staring with build 14328.

    You will indeed have it in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update on August 2nd.

    Can I reset single apps in the meantime? I'm having problems in one user account where the Get Started app won't play videos and the Kindle app won't show the account information to login. I've uninstalled and reinstalled them with no effect.

    You could try the tutorial below to reset all Windows apps, but it won't have any affect on 3rd party software or desktop programs.

    From your wording I thought you meant Win10 Reset too actually ,
    but as noted in post #2 this does not work in .420 , unfortunately neither did the App Reset tutorial Brink linked above , work for me, so I had to do an Inplace upgrade.

    I only upgraded yesterday!!! I think I'll wait until I have the app reset function on 2nd Aug and create another user account if that doesn't work.

    The inplace was painless for me .... but a clean install would be better but more time consuming , I have now ended up Clean installing both my Computers and things are better, it does need a time commitment to reinstall everything though.


    you could try a sfc /scannow command too
