Looking To “Refresh ” Windows 8

Windows 8 comes with a refresh setting if your computer is not performing as well as it once did . 

It will not delete your personal files and settings HOWEVER it will remove

  • Any software / apps that you installed from other websites or from DVDs 

Windows will put a list of these removed apps on your desktop after ” refreshing ” your computer. 

So if you are going to do this make sure you have the software ready to go back on.
