    To roll back open settings & click recovery in the left pane, on the right pane you should have the roll back to windows 8.1, click that & follow the steps. Note this will only work if you still have the Windows.old folder in the root of your C drive. If you have run Disk Cleanup in windows 10 & told it to delete your old installation then you would need to install windows 8.1 again.

    The rollback when fine on mine but I then restored the backup I made with macrium reflect free just before the upgrade to be on the safe side.

    You can always try the upgrade again at a later date to see if MS have fixed the issue. It bugged me a lot but then I'm a bit OCD

    If you did the upgrade to Windows 10 from an older version of Windows, you might have better luck with a clean install which is often much less problematic.

    That's why it is always better to create a backup image of your previous OS before upgrading to windows 10, that way if you roll back & there are issues you can just restore the backup & everything will be back to how it was before you upgraded.
