Both Reset and Refresh buttons play a vital role in troubleshooting issues with Windows 8 computer. The Refresh button is capable of reinstalling Windows without altering the settings, data and programs of Windows. Whereas, the Reset option will help you to reset your machine to the factory settings. Both the features do not require any extra drive, media or disks.

  • Now, in the computer screen, you will be seeing a window showing the search results. From there, click the Settings and thereafter click the option that says Create a recovery drive.
  • If you see that the option is not grayed, then it is needed to put a check mark against the box marked Copy the recovery partition from the PC to the recovery drive. Following that, you need to click the button tagged as Next.
