Hello Laurence. My name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to assist you today.

If it's been within 30 days of upgrading to Windows 10, you can easily revert back to Windows 7.

To access this, open the Start menu and select Settings. Click the “Update & security” icon and select “Recovery.”

You should see a “Go back to Windows 7” or “Go back to Windows 8.1” option. Click the Get started button to get rid of your Windows 10 install and restore your previous Windows install. Microsoft will ask you why you want to go back

If it has been more than 30 days, you can still revert back to Windows 7 but you'll have to do a new reinstallation of Windows 7. Either of which I'll be happy to help you with if you would like assistance.

If it's been less than 30 days, yes.

At least, that's what it's supposed to do. With any major upgrade/downgrade like this, there is no guarantee your files will be 100% working.

Expert:  Breland replied 1 year ago.

If there is anything you cannot lose, I highly advise copying them to a CD, USB or another hard drive if you have one before downgrading your operating system.

Excuse me, anything you cannot afford to lose is what I meant.

No just get my $5 back and I willtry to rerun my windows 7 myself. If that don't work I will just do without the PC all together and do everything the hard way
