Cannot leave Windows 10 recovery mode [Accidentally deleted some system files]

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi I need help with fixing my laptop. 


It was freezing so I booted into safe mode to uninstall some unnecessary applications and delete some files and I think I might have deleted some system files. When I restarted the laptop, it booted into recovery mode and all I can use is the command prompt. I'm not sure how to go about fixing it from here.

I reviewed your post and I understand that you have accidentally deleted some of the system files and now the computer is not booting to Windows.


Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.


I recommend you perform a system reset on the computer following the steps in the below article and check if it helps.


Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
