Downgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 7
By Leo Notenboom
Before you consider downgrading from Windows 8 to Windows 7, consider this alternative.–PC Pitstop.
I have a laptop with Windows 8.1 and I want to downgrade it to Windows 7 but unfortunately, to go about this seems very confusing. Can you assist me or provide me with the steps to go about doing the downgrade? In addition, can you let me know if there are any setbacks that I’ll face if in fact I do perform this downgrade successfully?
