It is still possible for users who have not system backups but eager to uninstall Windows 10 and go back to Windows 7. Follow the steps in below.

Step1. Find Update & Security by selecting Settings from the Windows 10 Start menu.

Step2. Access to Update & Security and go to the Recovery option. A list of choices will pop out, and you're supposed to choose "Go back to a previous version of Windows". Click "Get started".

Step3. During the downgrading process, you'll be asked to fill feedback on "Why are you going back" and a very crucial note should be paid attention that going back won't affect your personal files but you will have to reinstall some apps and programs. Additionally, you will lose any changes made to settings after the upgrade.

After applying the three steps, Windows will instantly turn its way back to the state of it used to be before updating to Windows 10.
