Keeping it old school: how to downgrade from Win 10 to Win 7

By  GB Blog Official 2018-07-03 2467 0

Windows 10 is certainly packed with features but some prefer the more traditional, classic Windows 7 look and feel.

The new Windows 10 brings back the popular start menu from Windows 7 and introduces great new additions, e.g. the Edge Web browser that lets you mark up a web page on your screen.

However, since Windows 10 became available to the public, not everyone has had a good experience. Some people have even considered going back to their beloved Windows 7.

For those who wish to go this route, there are two ways to downgrade:

1. Built-in Downgrade Option

setting in start menu

Click "setting" and then select "Update & Security".

Update & Security

Choose "Recovery" and click "Go back to xxx" as the following picture shows.

Go back to Windows

Pick the reason you wish to revert, then click "Next".

Pick the reason and click Next

A warning prompt will be shown, informing you that you need to re-install some apps and programs, and you will lose any changes made after upgrading to Windows 10. Backing up your files is not necessary, but it is highly recommended. Click "Next" to proceed.

what you need to know

Make sure you know your Windows 7 password as you will be locked out of the system without it. Click "Next".

Windows 7 password

Click "Get started".

Note: This downgrade option is only available for one month after you have upgraded to Windows 10. If that time has already elapsed, check out some of the other options.

2. A fresh installation of a previous Windows Version

If you upgraded to Windows 10 by mirroring files instead of directly upgrading from Windows 7/8, then you need to re-install a fresh copy of Windows 7 OS.
