Windows 8 to Windows 7. [SOLVED]

Post by ellajohnson on Sun 16 Feb 2014, 18:52

Hello everyone, Very Happy
I had a couple of questions about changing Windows 8 to Windows7.
Since I HATEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Windows 8 I really want to transfer to Windows 7 and I don't know if it's going to work.
Questions:
1. Is it gonna work?
2. Am I gonna lose everything?
3. Should I do it/is it worth the bother?
4. How to do it?
5. Any tips on what I should do?

Please write specific answers like why I SHOULD do it or why I SHOULDN'T.
Thank you  Smile

Hello,

So you want to downgrade? Hmmm... not sure if that's possible. Not in a "normal "way that I could think of.
the best way is to just back up ALL(!) your (important) stuff and then reinstall Windows 7. (So format your disk completely first)

However, I do not recommend doing so, because the difference between 7 and 8 is not that huge, except for the Metro interface everyone hates. :PYou can just use the old Desktop, right?
By the way, Microsoft plans on brining back the old Desktop as default in Windows 8 in a few months. They might even re-add the Start menu too.

Hi there,

What I mean is that you can still switch to the old Desktop interface.
There's an icon for it on the Metro interface. Somewhere in the left corner.

Hi there,

It's the Windows 8 layout you see by default:



It's called the "Metro interface".

Hi,
Well if it's kind of not possible to downgrade then I think you can close this topic now...
Thanks
