Don’t Like Windows 11? Microsoft Could Let You Roll Back To Windows 10: Here’s How Long You Get To Decide

Don’t like Windows 11? Microsoft will let you downgrade to Windows 10 without losing your data but only within this specific time period. Here’s what you need to know.

These files can be deleted to recover space, which is conceivable what will occur after the ten-day window finishes up. While Microsoft previously allowed users to downgrade their installations within 30 days, it looks like users will have to make up their minds within 10 days this time around, or make a backup and reinstall Windows 10 manually.
