I want to replace the factory 256GB SSD with a larger capacity one as soon as I receive my new laptop and figure the easiest way to go about it is just to do a fresh Windows install.

Is it just a matter of downloading the files from Microsoft onto a USB stick and booting from it? Is there anything else I should know/do? Will Windows find all the necessary drivers after the installation or do I need to download any drivers such as wireless beforehand and put them on the USB as well in order to get online to update the rest?
Will I need an activation key or will it activate automatically?
