Im selling my laptop and need to remove all my data from it

An Expert in Computer Memory

Description
I would like the computer to be as if it has never been used when I pass it to the buyer i.e all passwords removed, none of my data left behind. Is there a clean way to do this? I just bought a second hand laptop and it came to me this way bt I'm unsure where to start to do this with mine.

Please guide me by the hand almost if you can as I'm not tech minded at all.

Fairly easy when followed. With a windows 8 laptop move the mouse to the top right corner of the screen and then move it down along the side of the screen. This should bring up the charm bar. At the bottom there is an option for settings. Click on the settings button with a cog picture. This should open up another menu where at the bottom you will find "change PC settings". Go to the option "Update and Recovery" select "remove everything and reinstall windows" Please don't worry! this won't start the wipe instantly. Click "get started". This will bring up a new window warning you what will happen if you reset your laptop. Click "next" and then click "all drives". This is the point of no return. When the question "Do you want to clean your drive fully?" click "just remove my files"
And that will be your laptops hard drive wiped :-)

first Open the settings menu and find 'Update & Security'. From the Update & security menu, select Recovery. This will bring up two options: Reset this PC and Advanced start-up. For restoring your laptop, you'll want to select the first option. Now you'll have three options: Keep my files, Remove everything and Restore factory settings. Select Restore Factory settings and it will restore to the state it was in when it left the factory
