    Resetting computer which originally had Win 7 and was updated to Win 1


    Is it possible to reset a computer which originally had Windows 7 and was upgraded to Windows 10? I want it back to the way it was AFTER the upgrade, just as if it had been a new computer with Win 10 installed. I have backed up all data files (and have all software for reinstallation) so want only Windows 10 on it.

    Yes.

    If asked for a product key, click "I don't have a product key", "skip", or "do this later". As long as you install the same version of Windows 10 you had before, it will activate automatically by retrieving the digital license from Microsoft activation servers when you connect to the internet.
