Restore to original state without formatting

If all these tips did not allow you to make the Windows operating system more responsive, you can always restore it to original state without having to format the entire disk. Windows 10 allows you to restore it to settings starting directly from its settings.

Open the Windows 10 Start menu and type "Recovery Options", opening the entry of the same name.

<img class = "lazy lazy-hidden aligncenter wp-image-32697" data-lazy-type = "image" src = " of-ripristino.jpg” alt=”Options "width =" 269 "height =" 323 "srcset =" 490w, https: // www.×300.jpg 250w, -350×420.jpg 350w "data-lazy-sizes =" (max-width: 269px) 100vw, 269px "/>

The system will reboot and ask you if you want to keep the data on your PC. Choose this option if you have no backup and want to keep the documents, music, images and videos saved on your computer.

Once the procedure has been started, you can no longer go back: the PC will be restored and will return to its initial state, without any errors and without any slowdown whatsoever.
