We’ve all been upgraded to Windows 10, most of us are already using it for some time now and let’s face it – not everyone is satisfied. However, Microsoft is kind enough to instead ask you to format everything and start off a clean slate, a button to revert back to your prior operating system can be done.

Surprisingly, Microsoft not only implemented this button in the system, but instead made it very simple to use look for it too. Here, we’ll take you through the steps.

This downgrade ability however is only offered for a month after the upgrade – so do it while you still can so you don’t have to live with your regrets.

WARNING : I do not hold any responsibility if in any case your Windows machine cannot be started.

1. Open Start Menu and search for “Windows 8”

You should see "Go back to Windows 8.1".
You should see “Go back to Windows 8.1”.

If you upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 however, this might appear as “Go back to Windows 7”. However since all of the machines readily accessible to me are running on Windows 8.1, I can’t confirm that it’ll display as “Go back to Windows 7”.

2. Hit enter key (or just click on it)

3. Continue with the instructions on screen

Click on the "Get started" button below "Go back to Windows 8.1" and continue.
Click on the “Get started” button below “Go back to Windows 8.1” and continue.

4. Proceed with the warning messages that will pop up.

5. Wait until the downgrade process is done.

6. Back to the previous Windows version!
