- make sure you also have the serial number of paid programs that you have installed on your computer to be able to reactivate them
The "Preparing to reset" message appears.
Then, your PC will restart.
The Windows 11 logo will appear and several messages will appear one after the other :
After the Windows 11 reset is complete, you will find a new "Removed Apps" shortcut on your Windows desktop.
If you double-click on it, a web page will open with the list of apps that were removed when you reset your PC.
