In order to reset your MacBook Air to its factory settings, you'll first need to boot up your Mac in Recovery Mode. To do this, press and hold Command + R when restarting your MacBook Air or switching it on, keeping both keys held until you see the Apple logo.
After the Apple logo has appeared and it's finished starting up, you'll be shown the Utilities window. It's here that you can erase your hard disk and perform the reset. Here's how you do it:
1. Click Disk Utility
2. Click Continue
3. Click View > Show All Devices
4. Select your hard drive (e.g. "APPLE SSD") and click Erase
5. In the Format field, choose the APFS option if you're running macOS High Sierra or later. If you're running macOS Sierra or earlier, choose the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) option
6. Click Erase
