In this video, we will take a look at how you reset the Nintendo Switch back to factory defaults. You would return the Nintendo Switch back to factory defaults if you intend to sell or give away your console.
A factory reset can also be used to troubleshoot a games console. However, if you plan to factory reset your console as a way of troubleshooting a faulty Nintendo Switch, you must remember to backup your game save data before completing the reset. A better alternative when troubleshooting is to use “Restoring factory settings without deleting save data” option.
While the process demonstrated in this video will delete games data, game saves and user ID’s, it will not downgrade the current version of the consoles firmware.
