How to format Windwos 10 EASY! (Works in 2019) Hello, welcome back to Alambrix IT Today I’m going to show you how to format your Windows 10 PC. Doesn’t matter if it’s laptop or desktop, it’s the same steps for both. Excuse the video quality, looks as if it’d been recorded with a potato, Usually isn’t like that, but came in handy at the time… First of all, make sure you’ve backed-up of your files… I suggest using a pen drive or external hard drives. Once you super make sure you have a full back-up, go to: Start– Settings– Security and Up-dates– Recovery… and below, where it says “Restore this PC”, click Start… Here we’ll see 3 options: “Keep my Files” (looks like it’ll keep what we have in “My documents” file. Since I’ve never used it and I dunno how it works, I won’t recommend it for now). “Remove everything” will completely format the hard drive… I super recommend this one if you want to have your PC wiped clean… and “Restore factory settings” is like the previous one, the only thing is that it’ll install all the programs that came with the factory version… Choose the one you like, but for this tutorial, we’ll do it hard core: Remove everything. Then we’ll check these 2 options… If you want a quick format, choose the 1st one: “Just remove my files”… But if you want it to be more thorough, choose the 2nd option: “Remove files and clean the drive”… This I recommend if you’re selling or giving away your PC; being that with this option there’s no way of getting the files back, whereas with the 1st option, there is… in this tutorial we’re selecting option number 2 and then click Reset. PC will reboot, hard drive will start formatting and Operating System will install. This process may take a few hours… I suggest leaving it pretty much over night so PC is ready the next day. To get a time estimate, my hard drive was 1 terabyte and it took 7 hours… You can do a simple rule of three to get an estimated time… and once it’s all done, follow the steps on the screen to finish setting the Operating System up… and ready. It’s that simple and easy, we’ve formatted Windows 10.
