Boot from pen drive

i put windows 10 on a bootable pen drive to install on my wife's compaq cq45. However how do I set up the compaq to boot off the drive. Have been trying most of the night but have no luck so far.

Step 1

Restart or turn on your computer. You may see a screen that says, "Press XXX for Boot Menu" or "Press XXX for Setup." This indicates the key you need to push to enter the boot menu.
Step 2

Press the key listed in the previous step continuously while the computer reboots. If you did not see a message on that screen, try continuously pressing the "Esc," "F12," "F11" or "F8" key.

Click on flag in tray or go to action center, click recovery, then the line 'if your having trouble etc and you will find it there
