In particular, you may have to reinstall some software, and do’t forget to use your Windows 7 password rather than your Windows 10 password if you created a Microsoft Account for the new operating system during the setup procedure.

Stop it from happening again

Once you’ve upgraded a PC to Windows 10, you’ll always be able to do so again in the future.  I completely understand after a non-consensual upgrade you can turn to a pair of helpful tools to disable the Windows 10 upgrade prompts from returning.

You’ll always be able to do it later on, after you’ve downgraded a PC to Windows 10. I fully undersand after a non-consensual upgrade it is possible to turn to a pair of tools that are helpful to disable the Windows 10 upgrade prompts from returning.

Never10 and GWX Control Panel may also prevent your computer from being updated to Windows 10 if it’s’t yet. As disabling patches can leave you exposed to new security defects installing one of those is a much better choice than disabling Windows Upgrades entirely to prevent Microsoft’s pestering.

Hope this helped you, have an excellent day.
