    What OS are you running? You should be able to factory reset directly through Windows.
    • Select the Start  button, then select Settings  > Update & security  > Recovery. Under Reset this PC, select Get started.

    Also since windows sometimes seems to hide different options from different users... The way I got to where Ahmed was suggesting is open start menu and search for "Reset This PC"

    Once you're in the recovery settings, click "Get Started" under "Reset this PC"
    It should open a window saying "Keep my files" and "Remove everything"
    Since you want to clear the hard drive, select "Remove everything" and follow the rest of the prompts
