A normal reset is sometimes referred to as a soft reset. A normal reset stops all running applications but does not erase any programs or saved data.
Caution be sure to save any unsaved data before performing a normal reset since a normal reset erases all unsaved data.
- Locate the reset button hole on the HTC Polaris unit.
- Use the stylus tip to lightly press the reset button. The pocket PC will restart and display the Today screen.
