Which way to reinstall windows 10

Quick question if i may. Is downloading and running an ISO file the same as going to Recovery and choosing Reset This PC. In either case the choice would be to keep nothing. Many thanks.

Almost the same if your PC is fully updated.

REset advantage is that your drivers will stay the same

ISO advantage is that you will have the very latest build but possibly have to reinstall drivers from manufacturers web sites.
