Xbox One Reset Tutorial To Fix Your Problems
You are an aficionado gamer, an owner of an Xbox One console and you are getting a charge out of the most recent innovation. Besides playing games, lots of users are streaming videos from YouTube, while music lovers can do it through Xbox Music. However, to use these features, you have to pay a hefty sum that is equivalent to the price of the Xbox One. But, there are cases when applications stop working or the device simply freezes and you need to reset.
If you need a complete reboot, you will have to do it via a hardware or software button. When an application is not working properly a hard reset is required and to reset the console go to the Settings app and find the Restart Now button under the Power & Start Up.
At times hard reset is unworkable as something stops functioning; you need to perform a factory reset. This will fix your Xbox One, by removing everything that you have on your console (You will lose every game or music on it).
There are 3 power modes for Xbox One- the first mode is the “On” mode, the second one is the “Off” mode, while the third mode is when the console is on the “Stand By” mode and when you’re saying “Xbox, On”, the console will be turned on, but you can also press the Guide button on the controller.
To execute a factory restore, after turning on the console, open the My Games and Apps section using the controller or simply command “Xbox go to My Games and Apps.” To select Apps, say “Apps” or use the joystick to get to the menu from the far left. Then scroll to the right to get to the Settings app, or simply say “Xbox go to Settings” if you have a Kinect 2 sensor. Now that you’re in the Settings app, scroll to the right and select System, or say “System” if you have the Kinect sensor. To select the Restore factory defaults, you will either use the controller or say “Restore Factory Defaults”. When the popup appears, select Restore factory defaults.
To perform a hard reset, you can choose one of these two methods:
- Hold your finger over the Xbox logo from the front on the console until the system resets completely.
- Go to Settings app>Power&Start Up and select Restart Now.
We hope these few easy tips will help you repair the snags you face.
