    Does Windows 8 save my browsing history after resetting to


    So I reset my pc to factory setting and everything went good but when starting either internet explorer or google chrome it seems like they saved my browsing history.

    I used the same email account that I used before the resetting.


    Is that good? or my pc wasnt resetted at all and there are still some files that werent deleted.


    Plus I found some google chrome files that remained in a folder and I click on one of them and it brought me to google chrome official download page and thats why I am asking you this


    Thank you and sorry for any confusion

    Did you Reset or Refresh ? Reset will normally remove your files.


    Email account will remain the same. CCleaner is a good app to remove browsing history, cookies, etc but not files.
