What problems are you having?

You could certainly do a Factory reset by following the instructions here, https://support.toshiba.com/support... but keep in mind that would delete any of your data or programs you have installed since you got the laptop. So, you'd want to make sure you backup all your data/files before you go through the reset process.

You can do a factory reset on it, however, this is often the last thing you want to do on a machine. Think of a factory reset as a last resort, because as beachyhbt said, it will erase everything and not keep anything.

If you're having virus problems or its slow, etc., you can look into various programs that can help you. Why are you wanting to factory reset?

✔ Best Answer
And if you do opt for the factory reset... first copy "all" your personal files (stuff you wouldn't wish to lose) to external storage. Typically DVD but an external hard drive too is is nice(r).

But as above... first investigate why the need to go so drastic a step?

I love my Toshiba. I was having bad time staying awake after I wreaked my SUV found out pulse ox was very low I would fall asleep writing a check. well It is taped together . Now I have an HP . but every thing my husband watches on my old one some hoe it gets on my HP. There is nothing important on the Toshiba. I just want to take my name off the registration an maybe it will stop .Plus maybe he will not have to sign in . He hates that .So as you can tell I don't know much about then. I need something simple

You can start by sticking to the computer problem & not getting into your personal issues.

If you reset the Toshiba, you will likely lose everything...pictures, videos, word docs, programs, etc. If you don't want to constantly login, all ou have to do is remove the password. As for both computers seeing the same files, it's probably because you have network file sharing enabled.
