'Reset App' option reportedly coming to Windows 10 Mobile in Creators Update

The option to easily reset an app to a fresh state may be coming to Windows 10 Mobile with the upcoming Creators Update. Italian blog Aggiornamenti Lumia has managed to get its hands on some screenshots that show the feature in an unreleased internal build of Windows 10 Mobile.

Windows 10 Mobile Reset App option

As the report notes, the Reset App feature would allow you to essentially return an app to its freshly installed state without having to uninstall and reinstall the app. This could come in handy for a number of things ranging from clearing up errors to flushing data from a device to free up space.

According to the report, the button appears in the Advanced app options in the Settings menu. Pressing the button will then let you quickly wipe the data for the app in question.

Aggiornamenti Lumia claims that this feature will arrive with the next Windows 10 Mobile Insider preview build alongside some other, more minor interface tweaks. It's likely we'll see a new build arrive sometime later this week, but we'll have to wait to see if the Reset App feature tags along.
