How to use 'Refresh Windows' to do a clean install of Windows 10 Anniversary Update

The Windows 10 Anniversary Update includes an easier way to refresh your computer and remove bloatware, and here we tell you how to use the new tool.

When your computer is not working properly, or you simply want a setup free of bloatware, the best solution is to start from scratch doing a clean install of Windows 10 Anniversary Update. However, it can be a tedious process, and even though Microsoft offers a reset feature to reinstall the operating system, it only restores the copy of Windows 10 that originally came with your computer, which may also contain a lot of software and configurations you don’t need.

On an effort to make it easier to start with a clean install of Windows 10, Microsoft is introducing “Refresh Windows”. It’s a tool that lets you easily reinstall the operating system on your desktop, laptop, or tablet while wiping out any bloatware and configurations installed by your PC manufacturer.

“Refresh Windows” is now available for everyone and installs the Windows 10 Anniversary Update!
