How do I Undo my PC Reset?

I have reset my PC to Factory Conditions, and I have lost Microsoft Office and have no access to it. I have realized I have made quite a large mistake by resetting my PC. I do not think it is possible to undo this error but if it is, please inform me.

EXTRA INFORMATION:

Windows 10 before I Reset

Windows 8 after I Reset

I Chose to Delete Everything

No Restore Point Manually Created

Thank you!

Hi,

You can not undo a Reset.

You will havr to reinstall Office from the original Media.

When you do a Reset the Hard Drive is wiped clean and there is no way to reverse that action.

Cheers.

Wait, can I at least reinstall Windows 10 for free or do I have to pay for it? It does not show the icon to install it. Also, what if I use the same Outlook account, then could I use Microsoft Office without having to purchase it again? Lastly, why is my PC not running smoother like it was said to be?

Also, why "cheers"? I do not want to spend another $200 on 4 years of Microsoft Office and you know that.

You have 3 Threads going about the same problems.

You asked how to undo a PC Reset; I correctly advised you that you can't undo a reset.

You can upgrade to 10 again, if you meet all the system specifications.

You can't use Microsoft Outlook if you don't have Office installed, can you?

And we do not know why your PC is not running smoother like it was said to be, as we don't know exactly what you did to it.

As to Office being lost:

Reinstall it using the Product Key that you bought for Office.

You did keep a record of the Product Key, didn't you?

Also, why "cheers"

I try to be polite to everybody, including yourself.
