People are excited to try and test the first Insider build of Windows 11 that is currently operating on a large number of devices. So if you have installed Windows 11 on your PC that doesn’t meet the requirements you expected, you may be having a less-than-great experience. Plus, it’s an unfinished build. However, it may not be stable enough for you yet and you don’t like it much. So today, we’ll show you How to Downgrade Windows 11 Back to Windows 10 Easily.
If you updated to Windows 11 within the last 10 days, the downgrade process is quite simple. If it has been more than 10 days, the process is slightly more difficult since you will need to clean install the prior operating system (i.e. Windows 10) in order to remove Windows 11.
“Once you’ve updated to Windows 11, you have 10 days to use the rollback option to return to Windows 10 while retaining any files and data you brought with you. After that 10-day period, you will need to back up your data and do a “clean install” to return to Windows 10, according to Lenovo’s support page, which is based on Microsoft’s feedback.
Apart from problems, there might be a variety of reasons why you would wish to downgrade. Maybe you don’t like the new Windows interface, or maybe the apps you typically use don’t operate properly, or maybe you’ve chosen to wait until the stable build is released. Whatever the cause, this tutorial will teach you how to remove Windows 11 and return to Windows 10.

Mostly the downgrading doesn’t fail, if you don’t back up your files, it’s still fine.
