- Now use your device as a tablet with touch.
Apart from that, the company now also brings new reset this PC option that will now allow the user to select between download Windows or use local reinstall. Before this change, the PC only came with the option to do a local reinstall and would build a new Windows installation from existing Windows files.
“When this feature was introduced in Windows 10 version 1507, it provided the advantage of enabling Windows to be recoverable without requiring extra disk space to store a compressed, backup copy of Windows in a hidden partition. We’ve heard feedback that some of you would prefer to use your high-speed internet connection to speed up this process by just downloading Windows.”
