Windows 11 is now the default version of the operating system that manufacturers configure on new devices. However, while the new Windows introduces a redesigned interface and packs a slew of new features and improvements (even more on version 22H2), it’s still not a system everyone wants to use. In case you are among those who are still not ready to upgrade, you can downgrade to Windows 10. This is possible since Windows 11 is based on Windows 10, which means that the product key works to activate either version. You only need to go through some extra steps. (If you recently upgraded to Windows 11, you can roll back to Windows 10 with these instructions.) It’s important to create a temporary backup of your computer if something goes wrong and you need to roll back to the previous installation. Creating a file backup to OneDrive or another cloud storage or external drive is also a good idea since this process will delete everything on the device. This guide will teach you the easy steps to downgrade from Windows 11 to 10 the easy way for free.
