Don’t Like Windows 10? Here’s How to Downgrade

I explained how easy it is to upgrade even an older laptop to Windows 10 in my article, How To Get Windows 10 Right Now. My 5-year-old laptop is loving Windows 10, but not every one is equally happy with the new operating system.

Some people moving from Windows 7 are miffed that Windows 10 does not have an app to play DVD movies. Due to licensing issues, Windows Media Player was stripped from Windows 8 and Windows 10. There are paid apps in the Windows Store to replace it, but there’s no need to open your wallet to solve this problem. See my article on the free VLC Media Player software which will do the job nicely.

And then there’s Solitaire, the go-to app for people who want to waste time at work. I’ve seen rumors that the beloved card game was turned into a paid app, but that’s not true. You can still play Klondike, Spider, FreeCell and several other solitaire games on Windows 10 for free. There are some new features and a Premium version that require payment. But your favorites are still there, even though it may take a few extra clicks to find them.

Those are nits, but some users are finding that third party screen savers don’t work reliably, and some are experiencing crashes when using the new Edge web browser. Others report occasional slowdowns, or trouble getting Cortana to understand voice commands.

Any newly-released major upgrade of complex software is going to have bugs. If you find them too annoying, and you’re not interested in waiting for Windows 10 to stabilize, or you just prefer the comfort of your old Windows 7 or 8 system, here’s good news-Article Continued Here

  1. The Magic Jigsaw Puzzels apt that I downloaded and then paid for an upgrade will not work on Windows 10. I play this wasting a lot of my time and read weeks ago that Microsoft were going to fix this but nothing has happened so I guess I will have to revert to Windows 8.1 which is a same as in all other cases W10 is better

  2. The comment that some can’t get Cortana to work properly, I can’t get Cortana at all, as it’s not available in my area. Why advertise a program with features, when people in different areas do not get those features. I think it is very misleading.

  3. I tried to do the downgrade but couldn’t. Windows said the files you need to download have been deleted and the downgrade can’t complete….I didn’t delete any files….I had to end up restoring from an image back to windows 7 due to the many problems I had with Windows 10.

  4. Can anyone help me to undo the win 10 upgrade from win 7? The problem is that my cursor no longer operates, I’ve tried several times and even tried to undo with only the keyboard. Thanks
