This issue is caused by a display driver issue with lwjgl (minecraft graphics) and it can almost always be fixed by doing the following:

1) Update your graphics card display drivers, then test minecraft again. Info on updating drivers here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/update-drivers-in-windows-10

2) if it still doesn't work then you need to completely uninstall all old versions of Java, then install the newest one only from here: https://java.com/en/download/

    While the video may be useful, it is generally best to summarize the key points so in the case the video goes down at a later date, the information is retained. – Dragonrage Aug 9 '16 at 0:43
