    From within Win10? Basically, no. You would need to do a clean install of Win8.1

    Depends on how you acquired the W10 Builds. Did you clean install or did you upgrade?

    If you clean installed, you'll probably have to clean install W8.1

    If you upgraded you may be able to rollback:

    Just restore your Win 8.1 backup image that you made prior to installing Win 10.
