    Windows 10 fresh install?

    Hello. Is there a way to install fresh windows 10 without .ISO, usb and dvd? I updated my windows 7 to windows 10, but now I want fresh install, is it possible to do it? Like just to start setup.exe and install it ... I've seen some yt video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCOn9EHMQe8 so I was wondering is this even legit, will it work like that?

    64-bit Windows 10 Pro build 14955

    Hello Squickly,

    First, I will call false on the description for that video since Microsoft will always provide free Windows 10 ISO files to directly download from Microsoft. That alone makes me question anything the video says.

    Windows 10 ISO Download

    You can refresh or reset Windows 10 without an ISO, DVD, or USB since Windows 10 is installed with an image. You would only be prompted for installation media if there was an issue with the built-in image.

    Reset Windows 10

    Refresh Windows 10

    If you wanted to do a clean install of Windows 10, then you will need either an ISO or USB to do so though.
