Windows 10: Temporally Going BACK to Win 7 For A Few Months

    Temporally Going BACK to Win 7 For A Few Months (Need More Help)


    I did the Win 10 upgrade on both our Laptops and kinda like it but not to sure...

    My problem is we are reaching the 30 day time limit to go back to 7, we are going on vacation (in 3 days) for 3 months and I am afraid that there will be Win 10 updates and it will use up our Data allotments. Because we use our Hotspot on our phone to access the internet... I know there is probably a way to stop automatic updates but to be honest I don't really want to mess with that while on vacation...

    I would like to go back to Win 10 when we return and I'll have more time to "Play"........ I'm not even sure if I will be able to go back if not "so be it" I'll stick with Win 7.... (Psssssst but I really do like being on the cutting edge with 10) I am so torn

    Thanks in advance Lee

    1. Install Macrium Reflect Free
    2. Create backup image of current Windows 10
    3. Roll back to 7
    4. When you want to use Windows 10 again. Restore the image of Windows 10

    Really, Macrium Reflect is the way to go.
