Original title: Windows 8.1

Ok, serious question here. Just bought a new Dell, has windows 8.1 on it. I hate it with a passion, used to have 7 home premium, can I give this 8.1 back and swap for the windows 7 home premium?

Also, have been told the new 10 will be a lot like my old 7. true or false...thanks

1-You have the right to downgrade BUT if this is a new machine there may not be drivers to do so.  Without win 7 drivers the computer devices will not work (check with dell)

Dell may also refuse to downgrade you as they would have to pay for a win 7 license.

2-Win 10 is more like win 7 but not completely.

Your best bet would be to stick with win 8 and learn it a bit more and if you still hate it with a passion I would take a look at win 10 because the upgrade to it is free (if you upgrade within the first year)
