Surface Pro without a number is the successor to the Surface Pro 4 with updated hardware and over 800 new custom parts, and while this may be the tablet of choice to run Windows 10, eventually, you’ll need to restore the device to its default factory settings. It could be as a result of system failure, performance issues, or simply because you want to sell the tablet. While you can always use the reset feature built into Windows 10, if your Surface Pro (2017) won’t start, or things aren’t working correctly, you’ll need to use the recovery image to wipe the system and reinstall the OS. If you need to reset your Surface Pro tablet, Microsoft has updated its support site to make available the recovery image for every member of the Surface family, including Surface Laptop, Surface Book, Surface Book with Performance Base, Surface Pro (2017), Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro 3, and older devices.
