How do I replace my Hard Drive?

HP Notebook - 15-ay100 CTO
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I received a Samsung SSD as a gift and would like to swap out my hard drive.  Looking at documentation (or lack of), on-line at HP and the internet at large, there is no information on how to access my hard drive.  I tried the basics - remove the battery, remove the multi-media bay, remove the screws from the bottom, but after that, I am at a loss.  


Looking at videos and documents for other HP latops, it appears that I should remove the 3 small screws above the media bay, but I have 7 or so (going from memory).   Suppose I did that... then what?  Any help or guidance is MUCH appreciated.
