My PC was originally installed with Win 7, and I took the advantage of upgrading to win 10 while it was offered free by MS. I made a copy of the win 10 recovery files onto a USB I now want to reinstall windows; do I install from my win 7 disk and then what do I do to reinstall win 10??

Nope.

You can go straight to Windows 10 by downloading a copy from MS.

Have a read of this CLICK HERE

If you want to do a clean install I would download the Media creation tool from CLICK HERE and create a new bootable USB/DVD as this will have the most up to date version of Windows 10 saving the time to install all the updates.
