The Windows Mobility Center is a feature found within the Windows operating system that gives you quick access to some of the most commonly used features. The name “Windows Mobility Center” alluded to these features being undeniably the most common for mobile devices. For that reason, you won’t find it available for desktops unless you have enabled it, or the computer is connected to UPS.

Though you will use many of the same individual features from desktop, it is the option to save your preferences within the Windows Mobile Center via the Presentation Settings and Sync Settings that make it truly unique. For example, if you were to need to give a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation, you could set your preferences for all features found within the Windows Mobility Center and quickly enable them when needed.

If you have changed the Windows Mobility Center settings around, there may come a time when you wish you hadn’t and that instead you could go back to using it in its default state, the way it originally came with Windows 10.

The following tutorial demonstrates how you can reset the Windows Mobility Center and get it back to its default state when you are using a version of the Windows 10 operating system.
