Downgrade from Windows 8

Jan - 17 - 2013

Disclaimer: I’m not a Windows user … not even a Windows fan … but this is probably of interest to some of you so I’m sharing.

The other day my Dad was asking about buying a new computer. He didn’t want Windows 8 so he wanted to hurry and buy a computer soon so he could get Windows 7. It seems to be a common theme I’m seeing on the tech blogs – Windows 8 is a disappointment. So that’s why I thought I should share this Lifehacker article about easily downgrading your Windows 8 machine to Windows 7.

If you’re planning on getting a Windows laptop/computer soon and want Windows 7 be sure to read the tips from Lifehacker.

One Response so far.

    Thanks for posting the link to that article. I’m facing the same situation with my parents. I found enough hints to make the Metro tile interface go away on boot and bring back a Start menu, but I might just bite the bullet and downgrade them. (A new computer with Windows 8 came just on the heals of upgrading them to Office 2010 and having to explain where the “Save” command is and what the ribbon is all about. Too much change from the familiar and the perfectly useful.)
