Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.
You should be able to revert back to Windows 7 but there are restrictions.
Has it been over 30 days since you upgraded to Windows 10?
I see. That's more than 30 days but you can still try to see if it will work.
Click the Start button (the 4-pane icon in the lower left corner) and select Settings.
On the Settings page click Update & Security.
On that page, from the vertical menu on the left select Recovery.
Under Go back to Windows 7 click Get Started.
If you selected Recovery and, on the right side of the screen, don't see "Go back to Windows 7",
then it's too late to do it that way.
What's the brand and model of your PC/laptop?
You can do a factory recovery but that would remove all your installed programs and you would need to back up your data files first.
There may be a way to make Windows 10 look and feel like Windows 7 without any cost or the hassle of doing a factory recovery.
There's a free program called Classic Shell that will do this for you. Would you be interested in trying it?
It can always be uninstalled.
Thanks. Here's the page: http://www.classicshell.net/
Once there click the Download Now button and install the program.
One of the handy things it does is put the conventional start button and menus
the way it is in Windows 7.
I think you'll be quite pleased with this if you like Windows 7.
Let me know if any issues.
You're most welcome. Let me know how it goes.
I'll be here.
