    Is it possible to change an Android OS to Windows on a tablet? It's from Verizon, and from what I see, it's pretty much the same as my phone, LG G3.

    No. The closest you will get will be to remote desktop into a Windows computer.

    You can however buy a Windows based tablet, just make sure it's not an RT version if you want to run your regular desktop programs.

    Android tablets, and Windows RT tablets, use a different architecture than Windows PC's.

    As mentioned it is not possible as like may be the Windows 8 does not support processor architecture and so on.
