    When I built this PC I made a Windows 10 bootable USB and purchased a license key. I just did some reading about UEFI and found this interesting article, which said...

    When installing a fresh copy of Windows 10, you typically use a USB flash drive to launch the "Windows Setup" wizard to continue with the installation process. However, on a device that has a Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) instead of the legacy Basic Input/Output System (BIOS), it is crucial to use the correct media for the firmware type to complete the installation successfully.
    They explain how to create a Windows bootable USB with support for UEFI using a tool called Rufus. So let's say at some point I have to reformat this PC I'm thinking I should create one of these UEFI bootable USBs so that I don't have to go through all this again.

    What do you guys think?

    You could do that... or you could just use the Microsoft Media Creation tool...
