    Can i downgrade my windows 10 laptop in default back to windows 7?

    If so, can i run it on UEFI BIOS setting? Are there drivers of mine which supports also the windows 7?

    You didn't provide any information about your laptop.
    What is the make and full model number?

    There are no Windows 7 drivers, just Windows 8 and 10. You can try it and see what happens. Also, you would have to purchase a Windows 7 key to install with, no downgrade rights.

    Before dong so, please create an image backup of your current Windows 10 installation using Macrium Reflect to an external USB 3 hard drive ($60US). Then if things go wrong you can restore the image and be bback to Windows 10 in a half hour or less.

    May I ask why you want to go back to Windows 7? Windows 10 is a better OS and with some tweaking can be made to look and feel a lot like Windows 7.

    Windows 10 is a much more secure OS than Windows 7 . Do you have a Windows 7 key ? If yes , do image backup first and then using Windows 10 Rollback Tool . You can also refer to this
