I hate Windows 8! I want to return it and get Windows 7 installed - how do I do that?

I have bought a new laptop with Windows 8. I hate it! I want to return Windows 8 and get Windows 7 - how do I do that?

You sound just like me, and I agree with all that you say.

I am assuming that you want a cheap fix, yes?


Use an alternative start menu..




Costs $5 but is just like Windows 7..




They make a huge difference to usability, trust me. I use one myself and would be back with Windows 7 were it not for Start8. Now, I have the best of both worlds. I can still get stuff done, and can have a play with the 'other' side now and again..

Windows 10 Pro - Start10 - part of a local network which is a '3rd party optimizer-free' zone..
