How to Reset Kodi to Default Settings on Windows PC


The idea of resetting Kodi to default settings comes when the user experience on the platform becomes annoying. Sometimes you just want to give a fresh start to Kodi and make it run smoothly again. Some users opt for default settings to delete a build and restore the original Kodi state.

Factory reset means that you are making Kodi blank again as if it has just been downloaded for the first time. In other words, you are wiping everything you have on Kodi, builds, skins, add-ons, and wizards…. This means that you have to start from scratch.

Considering the amount of time and efforts it takes to set Kodi afresh, reset should be the last resort, or at least a backup can be an option. This is why we recommend considering every other option before carrying out a factory reset.
