    Hi All,

    I am having some issues with the windows 10 upgrade and would like to re-install the image backup that I made in Windows 8.1 (using Windows 8.1).

    Can someone tell me the correct way to do this from Windows 10 please, I would like to keep all the programs that I already have installed (mainly office) if I can.

    I am still just inside the 30 days roll back period, does this keep the programs like office installed or does this method just install Windows 8.1.

    Thanks
    Mike

    If you are inside the roll back period, simply do: Settings -> Update & Security -> Recovery. And you'll have the option to return back to Windows 8.
    Your files and programs won't be affected (although I always recommend to backup your files before, as you never know. Something you should be doing in any case).
