how to factory reset my alienware 17 R4 laptop

I just bought my first alienware laptop and I need to know how to do a fresh out of the box install.  nothing in the box and i havent seen anything on the computer that lets you do this. I am guessing or hoping there is some hidden partition that has everything since my primary 256 gig pcie hard drive out of the box was over half full. Thanks

Use the Recovery USB Creator that Dell placed in Start-Menu. If Win-10 Recovery doesn't work-out, you can then try using this created USB instead.
