Reset this PC

Copper Contributor

Hi All,

In what version of Windows 10 was introduced "Reset this PC" functionality ?

Is there any deep documentation regarding how it works ?


Thank you

Hi @-markohulligan 


the option was added way back in Windows 8

this article from 2012, when Windows 10 wasn't even born :)

@HotCakeX Thank you


Still I do not find what I'm looking for.


I'm testing the reset this PC (Win10 1607) and I'm unable to skip the OOBE screens, I have tested with  c:\windows\panther\unattended.xml and c:\Recovery\OEM\ResetConfig.xml but none of those are applied to execute some scripts.


Has anyone tested Reset this PC functionality and know how to to automate the OOBE configuration ?

Thank you.

Why are you using a more than 3 years old obsolete version of Windows 10?
of course it has problems, download and use the updated version and try again


It is a LTSC edition supported by Microsoft for 10 years.

Unfortunately I cannot use a newer one.
