    3 ways:

    1.) Reset the PC inside Windows settings
    2.) Press F9 during boot to run the recovery manager
    3.) Create an installation USB drive using the Microsoft media creation tool

    Thank you, so you know if the previous Win10 activation will still work?

    Hi, activation on the same device won't be affected upon reinstallation.

    Don't forget to back up your computer before resetting. Personally,i think it's not easy to install Windows 10 using the Microsoft Media Creation Tool,i wasted 6 hours on this without success.
    There are the easiest ways for me to install Windows 10 on computer.

    If you are going to download Windows iso,the download link of Windows iso can be found from Microsoft and Google.
    And this tutorial of installing Windows 10 with Rufus.

    It's quite straight forward and shouldn't take more than 30 minutes to complete if you format all the existing partitions and do a fresh installation?
