Hi! Windows 10 gives you a lot of ways to recover. I don't know if I can make a thread that explains every thing, but I'm going to try. I'm very lazy and so I will be attaching lots of links. Think I'll start here with MS link!
Next, how to get access to the Advanced Startup. Here's link by Shawn Brink( My hero)
Advanced Startup Options - Boot to in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
Next, I'm going to attach link how to use Advanced Startup. Here's link from HTG!
How to Create and Use a Recovery Drive or System Repair Disc in Windows 8 or 10

Here's a great link from MS!
If all else fails, you can always perform a clean install!

At this moment, that's about all this tired old mind can think of. If anyone wants to comment or add to this thread, you are always welcome. I love teamwork and I take criticism really well!:smile: I might add more latter if I can think of any thing. This is a dang good start anyway!:excited: I'm sure there are some more things to help you recover. The best thing is to create back up images of your OS with a third party program like Free Macrium Reflect! You will be fearless with a current image of your OS on a external drive or Cloud!
