    So, a few weeks ago, I downloaded Win 10.
    A few apps on Win 10 are not running but they did on windows 7 so i want to briefly restore to windows 7. If i do this, will i still be able to download windows 10 back?

    Have you tried running the applications in Compatibility Mode for Win 7?

    But yeah, you now have the free license for 10 stored in the cloud. To upgrade again you need to use the same Microsoft Account as the original upgrade.

    I'm pretty suprised that applications won't run, especially if you reinstall. What were they?

    Flipping back and forth is not recommended but yes you should be able to upgrade again. For another week or so.
