    If your PC is having performance problems, such as issues with memory, shutting down, or everything is working very slow, you can click the Additional info link under "Fresh start" to re-install Windows 10 with the latest updates.

    To perform a Fresh Start, perform the following:

    1. Click the Get started button
    2. Click the Next button.
    3. Review the apps that will be removed.
    4. Click the Next button.
    5. Click the Start button to begin the process.

    This process won't delete your files, it'll keep some Windows settings, but it'll remove everything else to help fix performance issues with your device (Windows Central, n.d.).
