My Computer is Slow After a Factory Reset?

I have a dell with windows 10 and I had too much stuff on it so I decided to factory reset it and clear out everything I didn't need and I saved the stuff I wanted to keep on a usb before I reset it, but now that I did the computer is running really slowly and I don't know why. Microsoft edge keeps freezing up and taking forever to load and I downloaded google chrome and that is slow too. Steam and all my games run just fine its only windows that's slow. How do I fix this? I didn't have any viruses before resetting.

    It may be downloading/installing updates.



    Update and security

    Check the progress. When all the updates have finished after several hours reboot and check again- there may be yet more updates.

    Also go to device manager and check there are no unrecognised devices that need a specific driver.
