    Brink, so we can't do a Clean Install with a blank disc? I thought we could, because I have already put it on a disc.

    Okay. Well, Night Hawk has posted some guidelines in my most recent thread about a problem I had today with File Explorer in Windows 10. But, I don't understand those guidelines. Can you read what he posted, and explain what he was talking about? Sorry for the lack of understanding or the misunderstanding.

    Hello Plasmawario,

    If you like, you can refresh Windows instead for essentially the same thing.

    The thing is, I'm in a situation where those options will not function. I am really aiming for these instructions. Any tips?

    You could boot from a Windows 10 USB to do a refresh as well.

    What's what I'm trying to do. Can you be kind and walk me through it? I already have a bootable usb with Windows 10 on it, and I can boot into it.
