Specs: Windows 10, I5
Hello, I googled to see how to go into windows 10 settings to reinstall Windows as a fresh copy. My desktop came with Windows 10 preinstalled with other third party software. If I reinstall Windows, would it reinstall all of the other programs that were already installed when I first got the computer? I want to do a fresh install of Windows 10 without any of the third party programs that the manufacturer installed. I dont have the Windows 10 disc it came preinstalled on the desktops hard drive. Thanks.

A fresh install from the recovery partition will almost certainly return the computer to the exact state it was in when you bought it. i.e., the third-party software will be reinstalled.

✔ Best Answer
Download a copy of Win10 from Microsoft then use it to do a clean install using the OEM product key. Make sure you get the correct version - Home, Pro, 32-bit, 64-bit, etc.
