    Reformat win 10

    Hello all,

    Can someone instruct me the correct way to reformat windows 10 home. I want reformat to where everything is erased and back to factory condition (like new). I assume when this done that win 10 will reinstall itself and any programs, etc that came with the Pc when it was bought new. I have an HP 510-010a with win 10 Home

    You have to watch the screen when you first power on the PC, it should show you what key to push to start the Recovery process.
