How to set my printer back to 'factory defaults'.

HP ENVY Photo 7855
Microsoft Windows 10 in S Mode

Having had the 4th HP ENVY photo 7855 printer in 2 years --- using Instant Ink --- its history of 'misbehaving' has pushed me to the point of wanting start all over, i.e., set it to 'Factory Default' settings --- before 'puting it out of its misery'. Please tell me how.  Thanks, Enod.

    Please also tell me where to look for your answers.
