We don't recommend going back to Windows 7. In stead our advice is to download and install Classic Shell (free), set it to show the Windows 7 Start Menu and you're ready to go in something that looks very much like Windows 7 and has the advantages of Windows 10: faster, safer and longer supported.

However, if you're sure you want the real Windows 7, the steps are:
- download the installation media from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7
- buy a license key
- boot from the installation disc or stick you made
- answer the questions
But what are your reasons?

My win10 is not so fast, in fact it needs several minutes to boot, win7 is well. and it too much storage used on system disk, I can't clear except reinstall system.

My mom's laptop is the 2006 Dell Inspiron 2GB RAM but with the 120GB SSD. It had W7 but we moved it up to W10. A clean install left 100GB free and with a power on to getting a google result in firefox is 33 seconds.

Sure if you feel like trying different versions of Windows, why not?

If you have an oem type machine -dell/hp/lenovo/etc- contact the maker an see if you can buy the w7 factory restore media.

That will get you the os and all the proper drivers for your machine.

Did w10 come with this machine or was it an upgrade?
What machine is this make and model?
