Windows 10 Mobile to get Reset App feature

This week, Microsoft will release a new Windows 10 build for Insiders who own PCs and mobile devices, and there are reports claiming that smartphones will get at least one new feature named the “Reset App”.

The screenshot posted by Aggiornamenti Lumia suggests that the Reset App feature will be integrated into Windows 10 Mobile and will show up in the following build slated to be released this week. According to the Italian site, this feature will remove all cache and settings of an application to return it to its original state. There are many applications with bugs, glitches, and display errors when in use, so this feature will come in handy to help applications work better. Plus, if you reset applications, removing unnecessary data will help you save space — especially when it comes to browsers.

After this feature is available, it will display information such as the storage required by the app files as well as user-generated data along with a button for resetting apps. Some say this addition was inspired by Android’s similar feature.

It seems that the location of this feature will be found in the Settings screen in the Advanced tab, but Microsoft might place it somewhere else when the feature becomes available to public users. Currently, only Insiders are able to reset applications, but when the Windows 10 Creators Update is launched in early 2017, resetting apps will be possible for everyone.

The new build is expected to be released this week and was supposed to come earlier, but Microsoft’s engineers took a few days off in order to spend Thanksgiving with their loved ones. We remind you that the new release will be available for both PCs and mobile devices.
