  • After updating to windows 10 I have had nothing but issues. PC will not boot. Finally got on by holding "shift" while turning it on.

    • If it’s been less than a month since you upgraded to Windows 10, you can go back to your previous version of Windows by going to  Settings  >  Update & security  >  Recovery  and selecting either  Go back to Windows 7  or  Go back to Windows 8.1.  This won't affect your personal files, but it will remove any apps you installed after the upgrade to Windows 10.  Learn more.

    • If it’s been more than a month, this option won’t be available in Settings and you’ll need to use a  different recovery option.
