Windows 10, what if I decide it is not for me, how to go back to my original Windows 7 or 8 or 8.1 ?

Windows 10 so far is pretty good, as far as I am concerned. But I am sure there will be some of you who would rather keep what you had before. HOW CAN YOU DO IT ?

It is not very hard to do, but you only have 30 days when you can go back to your original Windows version. Here is how to do it:

Click Start/Settings and then go the "Update & Security" icon. This will bring you to  the "Recovery" section; select "Go back to Windows 8.1" or "Go back to Windows 7". Now click "Get Started" and you are done, let the computer take you back to your old version.

That is all there is to it !!

However Windows will ask you why you want to do such a thing... etc. etc.

After you are done you may find out that some program icons are missing or misplaced, but do not despair, all the programs you had in the computer will still be there, just go to "All Programs" , select the program you are having problems with, open  the file location such as ""C:\Program Files (x86)\program name\.", select the exe application icon and copy it to the desktop. It will work as before.
