Reset Windows 11 to the Factory Settings

To begin the reset process, open the Settings app on your Windows 11 PC. Do this by pressing Windows+i keys at the same time.

In Settings, from the left sidebar, select “System.”

Click "System" in Settings on Windows 11.

On the “System” page, click “Recovery.”

Click "Recovery" on the "System" page in Settings on Windows 11.

In the “Recovery” menu, next to “Reset this PC,” click “Reset PC.”

Click "Reset PC" on the "Recovery" screen in Settings on Windows 11.

You will see a “Reset this PC” window. In this window, choose one of the following two options:

  • Keep My Files: Select this option to delete your apps and settings but keep your personal files.
  • Remove Everything: Choose this option to remove your apps, settings, and even personal files. You should definitely choose this if you’re selling or giving away your device.

Select an option on the "Reset this PC" window in Windows 11.

A “How Would You Like to Reinstall Windows” screen will appear. If you’d like to reinstall Windows 11 from the cloud, select the “Cloud Download” option. To locally reinstall Windows 11, select the “Local Reinstall” option. 

Select "Cloud Download" or "Local Reinstall."

Follow the instructions displayed on your screen to finish resetting your PC.

When your PC is all reset, you’re ready to configure it from scratch.
