Good Morning!

Best regards

    Hi

    you can't downgrade the OS - that would require a full reinstall. You can downgrade editions and install earlier versions based on your license rights - your reseller or CSP can confirm if you are eligible. Article here explains the details:

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks
