    I can't play Star Wars on Windows 10. And I can't figure out how to revert the operating system back to Windows 8, there's no backup on it. But it came with widows 8.

    If your computer(no description given) originally came with Windows 8, it would've had to be upgraded to Windows 8.1 first before if could be upgraded to Windows 10.

    If it's been more than 30 days since you upgraded it to Windows 10, you no longer have the option to revert it back to Windows 8.1.

    Go into Settings - Update & Security - Recovery.
    There should be an option there that allows you to roll back to Windows 8.1.
