    Downgrading to Windows 7


    I still have the option to downgrade to Windows 7, I'm wondering if I do, will I still have my files and programs that I downloaded and installed in Windows 10.

    No - only those installed before upgrade.

    OP is referring to installs after upgrade and the answer is no for those.

    All files will be kept.

    All installs made before the upgrade will be kept.

    All installs made after the upgrade will be lost.
