Many people were able to take advantage of the ability to update their computers to Windows 10. And, many of them waited to do the update at a certain time of day. Still, some people are unimpressed with Windows 10 and wonder if they can go back to what they had previously.
If you upgraded your computer to Windows 10 and don’t like what it has to offer, you’ll be glad to know that the possibility is there to uninstall the OS. What do you need to do? First go to Start, Settings, Update and Security to learn if you can uninstall it. Be sure to click on Recovery and look to the left-hand side of the window.
When you get here, you should see an option to “Go Back To Windows 7 or 8.” Hit the “Get Started” button. It will take a bit of time to uninstall the Windows 10 update, and you’ll be asked why you want to do this.
You’ll be warned that your computer will restart multiple times. Your computer’s performance will determine how long the uninstallation process will take. Until it’s done, you cannot use your computer.
After the uninstallation process removed Windows 10, your PC goes back to the operating software it was using before you upgraded. Be sure to check your computer to ensure everything is working as it should. Look at your files to see if they are still intact. If there is any software you installed while using Windows 10, you may find that it’s no longer on the computer.
You may also experience some compatibility problems when you use software installed under Windows 10. It would be best to uninstall them and re-install them using an OS-compatible executable program.
