    How do I 'remove' a profile and all of its contents?


    I am running windows 10 and selling my tower to a friend.

    I want to clear all of my data and essentially 'erase' my profile, and create a new admin account for my friend to use.

    Can someone direct me to a guide or explain how to do this?

    Hello Adam, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Since you're selling the PC, the best way to wipe the PC would be to clean install Windows 10.

    Do I need to be worried about the product serial if I upgraded from windows 8?

    In that case, you could also reset Windows to do so without having to worry about activation.
