However there are some drawbacks on Windows 10 like User Interface which everyone won’t like anymore. So those people decided switching option to downgrade their OS into Windows 7 or 8 for better performance.
This is possible once you follow my tutorial here to possibly revert back to your Windows 7 on your own PC and move on to classic properties. If you really want to install Windows 10 on your computer then i prefer to check those OS through 31 days free trial offer. OMG! ‘I really like my Windows 7 how can I go back to old days where i perform like expert‘, no worries you can get those through below settings.

Now Downgrade Windows 10
Here is the easiest process to go back to windows 7 during setup process. In simple words use “No”. I recommend you to decline Windows 10 end user license agreement and thus bring back to old operating system.
Microsoft clearly states that you are only allowed to go back to your previous Windows OS version for 31 days after Windows 10 upgrade. (See Documentation for reference)
But here you can confirm whether 31 or 30 days for rollback period to downgrade your OS version.
- Open -> Start Menu
- Head Over to Settings
- Settings -> Update & Security
- Click -> Recovery
- Choose option like ‘Go back to Windows 7‘ or Windows 8.1 (This options only shows to user who is eligible for downgrade)
- Click -> ‘Get Started’ to go back now.
If go back option is not there, then try this method to revert back to previous installation
- Goto Settings -> Update & Security
- Then Choose Recovery -> Reset this PC
- And Click Get Started -> Choose Restore factory settings.
