    Hi,
    1. The only possibility would be to clean install Win 7 and you'd need a license.
    2. Assuming your laptop is recent, there may not be Win 7 compatible drivers, so it simply may not work.

    Why do you want to? It's possible to use Win 10 with some modifications in a very similar way in normal use, with a start menu change and more. And it is possible to get control of updates and upgrades, especially if you have Win 10 Pro.

    i believe my gpu drivers have win 7 version and i think my processor supports win 7,my wireless network adapter also has windows 7 drivers,the reason i want to downgrade is because windows 7 has better performance than windows 10 and uses less resource

    Except this is not true. Optimised Windows 10 definitely runs faster than Windows 7.

    the only resource Windows 10 uses more is RAM which is BY DESIGN as it uses compressed memory, which ENHANCES performance.
