Obviously, turning your Xbox One off and on again isn't difficult, and it doesn't require getting up from the sofa. But sometimes you just want to reboot it quickly without going through a full shutdown.
There's a way to do this, but it's easy enough to miss. Here's how.
How reboot Xbox One
To reboot your Xbox One, follow these simple steps:
- Press the guide button on your controller.
- Navigate to the system menu by pressing the right bumper three times.
- Select restart console.
- Select restart at the next window.
Presto, the console will reboot without the need to shut down and power back up.
If you're in the settings, the same option can be found under the Power & startup menu, which is useful if you're doing something in there, such as tinkering with network settings, and want to give it a quick reboot.
