How to Backup Your Files in Windows 11 and Downgrade Back to Windows 10

Windows kept reminding me to upgrade to Windows 11 several weeks ago, and I did so. After experiencing a period, I would prefer Windows 10 rather than Windows 11. So I plan to downgrade back to Windows 10. How can I back up my files in Windows 11 before that?
