    It should work using administrative command prompt.

    A similar command is in this link: option #3, step #9
    Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10

    Tried running the shutdown from the admin command prompt and it says "not recognised internal or external command"
    You may have typed it incorrectly. Best to copy/paste the entire line to avoid any typos. Give it another shot.

    This one? Go Back to the Previous Version of Windows in Windows 10

    Assuming Windows.old is still there.

    I've just upgraded from windows 7 to win 10 but have decided its not for me.
    Windows 10 works perfectly on my low-end H81 chipset motherboard. What has decided you to abandon it?

    I have said this before that the menu options in the above link are outdated and are different to the ones on my version of win 10. I am therefore unable to recover to my previous version of windows 7. Please look at your own system and see what the menus look like on yours.

    Yes, I still have windows.old

    If I go from Settings through to Advanced Options >> Command Prompt my machine reboots, askes me to choose an account (only have one), enter the password and the boots into Administrators command prompt at X:\windows\system32

    If I then type in shutdown then I get the error message I mentioned earlier. I can use other dos commands like dir, chdir and ren but not shutdown with or without parameters.

    I dont want to continue with windows 10 because it is not compatible with my new Graphics Card and it upgrade hasn't carried forward all of my installed programs which would mean reinstalling all my software and games that I have in windows 7.

    I am now in desparate need of some help to get me back to my previous operating system.

    No, you want to open the command prompt (Open Command Prompt in Windows 10) in your normal install not in the advanced options but that command they gave was to reboot you into the advanced options that you went into to then try the command. What you want to do is go to settings, update and security, recovery on the left and then see if it says you can go back to the previous. Mine shows I can not as I do not have a previous for instance.

    The Graphics card is not the main issue, reinstall all of my games and other software will take a week or more.

    There is no option to go back to the previous, only Reset this PC and Advanced Startup
