I have upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10 and I'm really liking it. In case something goes wrong with my pc and I'm forced to system restore I'd like the pc to restore to win10 rather than win7. I have a 16gb usb

Click on the start button>>>>Settings>>>Update and Security>>>>Recovery>>>>Reset this PC.

 

From here you can Reinstall Windows 10, and choose to either keep your files or remove them

You also keep a 'spare' copy of windows 10, which you download from HERE  

 

If you get around to purchasing a bigger usb thumb drive, or better still a external hard drive with sufficient capacity, you can then use it to store an actual backup/image of your current hard drive.

 

I do this myself on a weekly basis.

 

I use either Macrium Reflect free or AOMEIbackupper Standard.

Also keep a spare copy of Windows 10 ISO on a DVD in a drawer.
