Switching from Manjaro/Linux to Windows

I posted this question on the Manjaro Linux forum, and someone directed me to here. Now, I switched from Windows 10 to Manjaro and I want to switch back, mainly because I can't play most of my games with Linux. I already have a 8GB USB with Windows 10 on it. However, it's not an ISO. Just an EXE. I can use Wine to launch it, and when click install on the Windows 10 pop-up, it gives an error message saying that Windows cannot find a location to store temporary files. I tried running BIOS and selecting the USB, but that told me to use Rufus. I installed and launched Rufus with Wine. I cannot select a device on Rufus though, as when I click on it, nothing happens. I'm stuck with Manjaro, not being able to play most of my games. Any way on how I can swithc my OS back to Windows 10?

Download the Media Creation Tool and install.

If the computer had been activated there is no longer a need for a key.
If asked for a key just go to the bottom of the page and click on Skip, Do this later, or I do not have one.

I put the ISO on the USB with WoeUSB. Then I went into BIOS and booted from the USB to install Windows. When I tried to install, it said that I cannot install because the partition is unrecognized
