Downgrade to Windows 10

Copper Contributor

If I  buy a new  Computer with Windows 11 on it, can  I be able to  downgrade  to Windows 10 and activate it for free?

You need to check with device manufacturer or OEM whether they provide downgrade rights for your device.

If not, you may need to make clean install of Windows 10 and then activate with a genuine paid license. Windows 11 license won't work in that case.
