If I factory reset, will it keep windows 10?

HP Pavilion 15-p091sa
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I bought my Pavillion in 2014 and of course it came with Windows 8.1. I've upgraded it to windows 10 for about a year. I'm still a student and I want to use purley for school work. Problem is I have lots of junk on it like games that I no longer need. I thought of a lot of things to speed it up as it is painfully slow such as an SSD upgrade, but that is a bit pricey. The only thing I could think of is reset it so it doesn't have loads of rubbish running in the backround becuase the disk is always running at 100% usage (even at idle).

 

So I was thinking, if i reset it to factory settings, will it keep windows 10 on it or will it degrade back to windows 8.1?

 

Many thanks :)

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

A "factory reset" returns the PC to the state it was in when it left the factory, so of course, it will reinstall the original OS, drivers, and apps.
