    Depends on what the Dell Recovery USB contains. Depends on whether it has, and/or you want, all the unnecessary bloatware that comes with proprietary installed OSs.

    Me, I'd go for the cleaner version from Microsoft (MCT), let Windows install/update drivers, then check Device Manager and chase up any missing drivers from Dell.

    I have already given some indication of what it contains. These are the drivers added by Dell to the bootable wims. Only 3rd party drivers are shown:

    Dell and HP have software that will find needed drivers and BIOS.

    A clean install can be performed allowing windows to install default drivers.

    Dell software can be installed to find drivers and BIOS.

    The download and or install can be run overnight.

    A reboot can be performed followed by Windows updates.

    The Dell software can be run again to check for any additional drivers.

    Are you talking about beneath your Avatar where it currently says "Windows 10 Home (x64) Version 1809 (build 17763.253) Dell Inc. Inspiron 3670" ?

    That is not your signature being displayed there, it is the 'OS:' line from your system specs....

    You're welcome.

    Once you've got the computer setup consider the options to backup drivers and make free backup images:
