    Windows 8 'system reset' image leaks

    Among the many new features that will be incorporated into Windows 8, one that had previously leaked was that the system could be reset to factory conditions in just a few minutes. On this front, an image has leaked that shows the reset button and that it will be located near the system restore option within Windows.

    This leak comes courtesy of win7china.com who has posted up quite a few leaks in the past, so the image does have some weight behind it. It is stated that it will only take two minutes to restore the default Windows 8 instillation, although that does seem a bit optimistic and is hardware dependent.

    I'm glad they added it to Windows 8. Another thing I would like to see them add is the "Guest Mode" feature. Which was in Windows 7 Beta but they took it out. I thought that was a really good feature...

    Well, let's see how it goes. This feature has the potential to replace a whole and lengthy format if programmed well.

    A simple "System Reset" button to save your life when an OS goes messed? Great !
