Guide to Deleting All Configurations in Cisco Switch Packet Tracer
Cisco Switch Packet Tracer (SPT) is a powerful and versatile network simulation program that is used by individuals, businesses, education institutions, and government organizations around the world. The ability to simulate a full-scale network using SPT can be a valuable tool for network engineers, students, and hobbyists alike. SPT enables users to design, test, and troubleshoot a variety of network configurations and scenarios in a safe, simulated environment.
However, with all of the powerful features of SPT comes a large number of configurations, which can become difficult to manage and can lead to confusion and mistakes. Fortunately, SPT also provides users with the ability to delete all of their configurations at once in order to start their project with a clean slate. This guide will provide step-by-step instructions on how to delete all configurations in Cisco Switch Packet Tracer.
Step 1: Access the Switch Tab.
The first step in the process of deleting all configurations in Cisco Switch Packet Tracer is to access the Switch tab. To do this, open SPT and select the Switch tab located in the upper left-hand corner of the main window.

Step 3: Select the Desired Reset Method.
The Reset Configuration window provides users with two options for resetting the switch configuration. The first option, Reset to Factory Defaults, will delete all configurations and will reset the switch to the factory default settings.

Step 4: Confirm the Reset.
Once the desired reset method has been chosen, click the OK button to confirm the reset. The switch will then reset itself, deleting all configurations and resetting to the chosen state.
After the reset is complete, the Switch tab should display the new, blank state of the switch. All configurations and settings should now be deleted and the switch should be reset to the desired state.
Deleting all configurations in Cisco Switch Packet Tracer is a straightforward process, and can be a valuable tool for network engineers, students, and hobbyists alike.
