A console or any device isn't really yours until you personalize it..

But doing this process without keeping track of what you change may not be ideal, because you won't remember your old options. While it is possible to reset options individually on PlayStation 5, this will not beat resetting the console completely, until it restores its factory settings.

This will delete all your data on the console and bring you back to day one. In addition to giving the console a second chance, resetting it to factory settings is also essential if you decide to resell it, so potential buyers can customize everything and keep your information safe..

Here's how to restore the PS5 to factory settings.

  • Locate the cog icon on the main menu and click on it to access the options menu.
  • Scroll to system and click on it.
  • Click on Reset Options.
  • Select Restore Console.
    • A warning will inform you that your data will be deleted from the system. You will have to click on Restore again to start the process.

There is no way to undo a factory reset. The changes will be permanent and it will only be possible to restore the option preferences, which will be saved..
