Yesterday Windows 10 did a partial install of Windows 10. I had been getting requests to update & I choose date option 5 days away for 3-13. But they did it anyway on 3-10. Now I have no way to get to my email etc. I want it totally gone & want my windows 7 Pro. Why did it install unwanted? How do I revert back ??

HELP!

goto windows logo (bottom left) > settings> update & security > recovery
you should see an option to return to previous version of windows
this is only available for 30days from the update

There is not a windows logo on bottom left on screen.
Should I be pushing Windows button on keyboard?

I looked at my update history & it said unsuccessful. I think that what I ended up with is partial Windows 10 & part Windows 7 Pro

if it was unsuccesful - you should be back to windows 7 pro
I guess that went wrong as well

what about a restore point to before you upgraded - does that exist

ok - so windows 10 install has been unsuccessful and you have lost your start globe

perhaps a screen shot from a phone if possible may help
if not

then you may need to use your recovery DVD and goback to factory / re-install the windows 7 system

whats the make and model of the pc
