How to reset Windows 10 settings to default?

If I go to 'Settings' I have 'System', 'Devices' and so on, and in them other categories. If I enter in them, I can make some changes. But after that how can I reset them to default? There is no button in 'System', 'Device' and so on, and in their categories, to reset the setting to default. Just in some categories. ( And I don't need to restore the entire 'Windows 10' to the first installation stage! ) I just need a 'Default' button in every category.

Why is this important? And why I can't check all of them and reset them manually? Because one day a virus changed my 'Windows 10' settings and I don't know exactly what it changed. Some security settings too. So after I removed the virus, the changes remain the same. And sorry for not remembering all the 'Windows 10' default settings and resetting my entire 'Windows 10' settings! And with 'Sync your settings', the virus settings were sent to other devices.


Hi,

As per your concern, some settings on Windows 10 have default options. You can reset Windows 10 to its defaults app by following this steps.

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Choose System.
  3. On the left side, select Default app.
     
  4. Under Reset to the Microsoft recommended defaults, click Reset.

This is not useful at all. I think I made myself clear. Read again 'If I go to 'Settings' I have 'System', 'Devices' and so on, and in them other categories. If I enter in them, I can make some changes. But after that how can I reset them to default? There is no button in 'System', 'Device' and so on, and in their categories, to reset the setting to default. JUST IN SOME CATEGORIES.'! I need, we need, reset to default in all categories.
