Clean Install of Windows 10 from OEM System

How do you do a completely clean install of Windows 10 if the software came with the PC? I'm having issues I shall describe elsewhere and think a reformat and reinstall may be the only solution.

click here maake the boot media on USB or DVD

back up any files you need and even drivers if necessary before you start.

Boot with the media plugged in and follow the prompts to install without keeping data.

If Windows 10 came with the computer you may have a program supplied that will do a clean install back to factory default with the original programs or in the cortana search bar type recovery and click on recovery options here you will find reset this PC, here you have the option to keep your files or delete everything. Doing it this way will keep all the drivers that were installed.
