Reinstall windows with the disk may work, or possibly recover at a earlier date before you installed windows10

No access to my computer right now but I think it's in Settings > Backup & Recovery.
You may need to go through the recovery option a fair bit before it asks if you want to go back to a previous version of Windows. That's on the assumption that you did an upgrade from Windows 8.1 rather than a clean install.

Yeah but you only have a month to do it so I guess I cant do that

Odd, I find 10 very snappy!

You can't go back after 30 days. In fact I'm sure I read they reduced that recently. Either way, if you did an upgrade, I'd recommend backing up everything and doing a fresh install from scratch. I have no problem gaming on Windows 10. What are you playing?

to go back to 7 you'll need a license key and your installation media....to do it the legal way, anyways.

Get used to windows 10. it does everything 7 does. And more.

Install classic shell http://www.classicshell.net/ to make win10 look and feel like win7. I was a die hard win7 fan but if I'm honest win10 is a lot better with classic shell installed. Takes less than 30 sec's to install, if you don't like you can simply uninstall it. I've been using classic shell since win8.

I somehow got upgraded from 8.1 to 10 but haven't really noticed any difference.
#10
Are you going back to Windows 7 or 8.1?

I love these silent ones. They ask a question and never respond
