    What programs will I have to reinstall to revert back to Windows 7?

    When I started the recovery process to revert back to Windows 7, I saw a warning that I would need to reinstall some programs after reverting. I aborted at that point. Does anyone know what programs I would need to reinstall?

    Hello Cocatfan, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Basically, anything you changed or installed after upgrading will be removed. When you go back, it goes back to the same state your Windows 7 was at before upgrading to Windows 10.
