There should be a Refresh / Reset option within "Update and Recovery > Recovery"

To get to this you can: Type reinstall within the search tool in the start menu > "Remove everything and reinstall windows" > Within recovery section just below "Remove everything and reinstall Windows" click the "Get Started" > Press Next > Fully clean the drive (Or just click the blue text to get step by step instructions with pictures)

You should also take note of the product key as this the reinstall will ask for one. You can use this, just put into cmd, to get the original product key.
