Default wi 10

Hi

I would like to sell my advent 5611 laptop which I have put win 10 into.

Is there some way of removing my name etc from the start up and welcome screen

Regards

Have you linked a Microsoft account to it and its showing your name there? If so take a look at this guide, Windows 10: Switch to Local Account in Windows 10 - Ten Forums

If you go to cortana, and type reset, a system settings option will pop up and reset the whole pc to factory defaults. probably not as good as wiping the drive multiple times and reinstalling windows, but it should at least make it more difficult for someone to recover the data.

I did this recently for a friend, and it took an hour or two, but her laptop wasn't very quick anyway.
