Windows 11 is a versatile system that is integrated with a wide group of functions and features that seeks to ensure that each user enjoys a unique user experience, but like any operating system, it is never exempt from presenting errors or failures that cause it to present instability, crashes, restarts and more activities that affect the normal use of our equipment..

 

This applies to both PCs and laptops, which is why in this case the function to reset the equipment is integrated. This offers us various options to complete the process and at TechnoWikis we will explain how to use this function.

If we select the “Keep my files” option, the following will appear:

 

  • Windows 11 will be reinstalled and our personal files will be preserved
  • Installed applications will be removed
  • Changes made to the configuration will be deleted
  • The applications installed by the PC manufacturer will be restored

 

 

If we click on “Remove all” the following will happen:

 

  • Windows 11 will be reinstalled and personal files will be removed.
  • Installed applications will be removed.
  • Any changes made to the configuration will be deleted.
  • All applications installed by the computer manufacturer will be removed.

Step 5

Now it is time to select the type of Windows reinstallation, if we select the “Cloud download” option, more than 4 GB of data will be needed since the image will be downloaded from Microsoft servers, instead, if we select “Local reinstallation”, the local image of the system will be used, it is lighter.
We click on the desired option to see a summary of the task to be performed:
