Windows 10 2004 update removes the option of Fresh Install

After updating Windows 10 2004 update, you can’t opt for a fresh install if your Win 10 goes wrong, as the button goes missing

This is an irony of sorts! Microsoft had announced before releasing the Windows 10 May 2020 2004 update that it will offer Windows 10 users to restore their PCs and laptops from the cloud. But it seems that the Windows 10 2004 update removes the existing Fresh Install button which allows users to freshly install Windows 10 if something goes wrong or terrible happens.

The fresh start is a boon for many Windows 10 users as it allows them to reinstall the operating system and start from scratch without losing their settings and files. It is available to users by going to Device Performance and Health and selecting Fresh Start at the bottom of the screen.

The Fresh Install is used by Windows 10 users to deal with common problems in the operating system including driver issues which are pretty common. It enabled Windows 10 users before updating to Windows 10 2004 version, to reinstall Windows 10 and thus fix issues related to memory usage or device performance. A simple button pressing the Get Started would restore the Windows 10 PC/laptop to its original settings without deleting your videos, images, or files.

But after you have updated to Windows 10 version 2004, you will find that the button Get Started has gone missing. Instead of the Get Started button you get a link saying Additional information.

This issue was first noticed by an Italian website HT Novo. They say they have reached out to Microsoft asking the reason for removing the Get Started button in the Fresh Install. Until it is clear whether this is just a bug or something Microsoft had planned, you are only left with an option to re-install the Windows 10 version from the cloud.
