There is a Windows 10 App called Recovery Drive Creator (hit the Windows Key and type recovery and it will come up in the results) that allows you to make a recovery drive with ease.

 

You need not concern yourself about its contents, only how to use it.   Take your pick among the tutorials returned by this DuckDuckGo Search on windows 10 create and use a recovery drive for all the details you could possibly want.  I never know which tutorial might suit any individual best.

Personally, based on some recent statements by Microsoft that they are deprecating their own recovery tools, I am disinclined to depend on their backup and recovery solutions in Windows 10 over the long term.

 

Were I you I would strongly consider looking at third-party backup and recovery options.   Two easy-to-use, and free for home users, options are EaseUS ToDo Backup and AOMEI Backupper.   Both of these require you to create a recovery disc related to the product itself much like you're creating for the Windows built-in utilities, and it's every bit as simple to create and, I'd say, they're both simpler to use.
