    Thank you all , I think I will keep working with this Windows pre-installed on my laptop , as far as performance won't change after making clean installation !

    I'm still using my factory image that came installed with my laptop , as I'm afraid from losing some of my laptop functionality when doing clean installation , like my finger print - face id - touchpad synaptics - hot keys ....

    Anything on your laptop that is supplied with it should be downloadable from your manufacturer. Each manufacturer supplies a way of searching for and listing the drivers and utilities for each model, listed by OS supported, from the BIOS to multimedia utilities.

    I suggest you go and have a look.

    Also, these may be updated occasionally over time.

    The only thing I usually install from PC vendors is their Support software which will keep you're drivers up to date or remind you to update them.
