I want to go back to win 7 from win 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • How do I go back to win 7 from win 10? All of the posts on line must be for the beta version because I don't have the options they show on the recovery screen. I tried to like 10 but it has taken away too many of the things I like about 7.

    Update: I spent a couple hours last night with the MS tech and he finally concluded that it could not be done from 10 so he performed a full recovery.

    After chugging away for about an hour the computer restarted and bingo, I am still on win 10.

    Is there anyone at MS that knows anything about win 10 and how to get back to win 7?????

  • Hello,

    The 'Academic Initiatives - Technical Queries forum' forum is for posts Related to technical / coding / programming related issues as related to Microsoft's Academic Initiatives.

    I'd ask in the Windows 10 Community forum on Microsoft Community.

    As the Microsoft Community is on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.

    Once there, click on Participate near the top of the screen, and select 'Ask a Question' or 'Start a Discussion'
