Change from default set-up to customs setup

    Change from default set-up to customs setup

    My mother got a new laptop for Christmas. When I set it up for her I went through and did the "express" set-up or whatever it is called instead of the custom set-up.

    I too got a new laptop and did the set-up on mine after I did hers. I now want to go back and do the custom set-up on her computer instead of the express setup I did initially.

    Btw, both machines have windows 8.

    Is this possible?

    I think the only way to do this is to restore to factory then on boot you'll get the setup choice again. She will lose her data so if there is anything she does not want to lose, back it up first.
