    What are your experiences using the ‘Reset this PC’ feature in Windows 10? While it’s useful and provides a simplified way for users to reinstall Windows, I have found that it doesn’t always fix critical problems. At least if you choose to keep personal files. If you have the option, I would advise to reinstall Windows using the Media Creation Tool or by downloading the ISO.

    There are also some differences if you choose to ‘keep personal files’. Reset appears to keep personal settings, like known WIFI networks. Reinstalling Windows doesn’t. I wish Microsoft would detail the exact differences between a reset and reinstall.
