If your Computer is having problems with Windows 10 or do you want to obtain a new copy of Windows 10 without unnecessary old files and apps, you can reinstall Windows 10 to correct the problem and restore the computer to its original state.

Windows 10 May 2020 Update (version 2004) introduced a new feature “Load from cloud” which will allow you to download the latest Windows files from Microsoft servers and use them to reinstall Windows 10. If you use this feature, you will be running the same build and OS version, which was prior to this.



“Download from cloud” to reinstall Windows 10

New feature “Load from cloud” allows you to get rid of these shortcomings. Now instead of having to try to collect all the necessary files from the local storage, Windows will be able to download the actual Windows installation files from Microsoft servers. You will receive the latest versions of files, so no additional updates are required.

To use this feature in Windows 10, version 2004 (May 2020 Update), you need to go to Settings > Update and security > Recovery and in the section “To return the computer to its original state“click “Start”.

Then you need to specify whether you want to preserve your personal files or you can delete all, and then you can choose the option “Download from the cloud“to load the setup files from Microsoft servers or “Local reinstallation“to use the local system files.

“Download from cloud” will also be available in the recovery environment that runs when failing to start the system. Thus, you can use the function “to Return the computer to its original state” to load the new file from Microsoft and reinstalling Windows, even if the system is damaged and cannot boot.

Preparation phase
