Default Broken Screen- How do I factory reset

My girlfriends phone was dropped, you cannot see the screen at all. Does not respond to touch. I managed to get her pictures music etc off of it but I want to restore it to factory defaults in order to remove all of her personal information. This is a stock phone with NO root.
I would think this will have to do with ADB, I have fooled around with ADB in the past but I dont have a clue as to how install/set it up again. Please leave a detailed instruction if possible.

I GREATLY appreciate any and all help in advance.

No need for adb just boot into recovery and factory reset.
To boot into recovery just hold down volume up + home + power button. Once in recovery just use the volume keys to navigate the options and use the power button to select factory reset.

Try watching a youtube tutorial or something that shows the recovery screen and then just figure out where the reset option is.
