    Heya folks,

    So I've built quite a number of PC's for people, but I've only used windows 7 and it had an option to restart the PC back to when you first start up a brand new PC after I had installed all the necessary drivers. Not a reinstall, but just to go through the last steps of setup, create an account, set up WiFi etc.

    I can't find this option in Windows 10 at all, and I've done a reset but it still keeps that original name you put in on first step up. I can't get rid of it without doing a full format and reinstall it seems, but then the computer won't have the right drivers installed.

    Am I missing something here? Can I do what I used to be able to do with Windows 7?

    Settings, recovery, reset this PC and keep nothing will present you with the welcome screen, you should then be able to enter audit mode and shut it down .
