How to downgrade from windows 11 to windows 10?

Aldy Winata 5 Reputation points

some time ago, I accidentally clicked update windows from windows 10 to windows 11.

after done, i feel my device a bit heavy. However, I think because after the update it's a natural thing because it needs adjustments.

However, over time, my device becomes very slow even to open the file manager is very time-consuming.

How to migrate from Windows 11 to Windows 10 again, without reinstalling?

because it will really take time to tidy up my files.

    If you upgraded within last 10 days, you can downgrade back using this guide:

    Once 10 days limit is reached, you need to make clean install of Windows 10, if you still want to go back.

    Some options are:


    a) troubleshoot the problems with Window 11

    b) manually backup files > clean install either Windows 11 or 10

    c) have windows backup files > clean install either Windows 11 or 10


    Methods b and c require the reinstallation of drivers and applications.
