    After the free upgrade I am choosing to go back to Win 7. Pathway Start > Settings > Update & Security > Recovery. Then choose "Go back to Win 7" or "Go back to Win 8.1". I click on Settings and see it for a microsecond. I have tried multiple pathways. The Help forums are full of this problem when searched on Google. Please help......

    Do you happen to have a restore cd or usb? I haven't heard good things when systems are upgraded to windows 10 and then reverted back.

    I'm a bit older. My daughter did this upgrade. I've followed all the directions. Even with Win 10 I can't open the Settings button to even revert back. Tried the Windows button + I, and Windows button + a. All three let me see the Settings screen for a microsecond and it's gone. The license #'s are on the bottom of the laptop. Can I download Win 7 from Microsoft? Settings is a pretty basic thing, right?

    Did your computer come with CDs when you bought it?
