    Restoring machine using the Recovery Partition

    I just bought an HP Pavillion 15 ab15nr laptop with windows 10 and messed up the install of my programs. The factory recovery partition is untouched and as far as I know intact. How do I go about returning the machine to its factory condition using the Recovery Partition and starting over again? Boy, I miss having a Win7 type installation disk.

    Thank you very much.
