Based upon the information provided, this is not an Intel-branded Compute Stick; it is a clone device released by some other manufacturer. You will need to contact this manufacturer for information on the Windows 10 recovery capabilities they have built into this stick.

As a hint, if they have included the normal Windows 10 support capabilities, there should be a hotkey that you can use during system boot that will invoke the Windows 10 reset/recovery support...

Hope this helps,

Oops, forgot to mention, F8 is the typical key assigned to the activation of the Windows 10 reset/recovery capability. Reset your stick and try hitting F8 at the splash screen...
