How to Reset Chrome, Firefox, and Edge in Windows 10

In this post, we will see:

Reset Chrome

Open Chrome. In the address bar, type chrome://settings/reset and then hit Enter key.

Now, you can see Reset and clean up section. In it, you can see Restore settings to their original defaults option, which you can find above Clean up computer.

Hit that option, and you can see a pop-up.

In it, you can see this message: This will reset your startup page, new tab page, search engine, and pinned tabs. It will also disable all extensions and clear temporary data like cookies. Your bookmarks, history, and saved passwords will not be cleared.

If you’re okay with that, unselect the Help make Chrome better by reporting the current settings option if you don’t want to report your current settings to Chrome and then hit the Reset settings button.

Reset Firefox

Resetting Firefox will restore its default settings. Also, it’ll remove add-ons and customizations, and it’ll keep the cookies, browsing history, bookmarks, saved form history, saved passwords, other data, windows, and tabs.

Here are the steps to reset:

Open Firefox. In the address bar, type about:support and then hit Enter key.

Now, at the top-right of the screen, you can see the Refresh Firefox button which you can find above Try Safe Mode. Hit it.

In the pop-up, click on the Refresh Firefox button.

Note: You can see the Old Firefox Data folder on your desktop. You can delete it if you wish.

Reset Edge (Chromium)

Open Edge. In the address bar, input edge://settings/reset and then hit Enter key.

Now, in the right pane, you can see Restore settings to their default values. Hit it.

You can see a pop-up now which states: This will reset your startup page, new tab page, search engine, and pinned tabs. It will also disable all extensions and clear temporary data like cookies. Your favorites, history and saved passwords will not be cleared.

If you’re okay with this, hit the Reset button on the pop-up.
