I got a new computer about 4-5 months ago and I go on YouTube and search up how to downgrade windows 10 to windows 7 but you need Local Disc (C:) to do it but you only have that if only you upgraded it. I bought the computer after Windows 10 came out so I can't have that option to do it with Local Disc (C:) I have been trying to search everywhere on google but it doesn't have no results but "how to downgrade with Local Disc (C:)" (doesn't literally say that) But yeah, I really need help and want to downgrade to windows 7 immediately. Please help!

If this computer had Windows 10 installed on it from the factory ( Windows 10 OEM installation ), then there's nothing to downgrade to. You had to have had Windows 7 or 8.1 installed on a computer and then upgraded to Windows 10 before there would be any Windows version to downgrade to. You may be able to find a place to purchase a Windows 7 version installation disk, but be very careful it's "new" and has never been activated.

Local Disk just means your "C" drive

The reason you don't have the option to "downgrade" is because you never upgraded. Your computer came from the factory with Win 10

If you want to get Win 7 on your particular computer, you have to buy Win 7 and install it. Before you do that what you need to do is make sure your motherboard had Win 7 drivers available out there to run it. It should, however there are a lot of computer manufacturers who have already begun to move forward and leave Win 7 behind, hence there may not be any drivers for Win 7 available. This is why you have to make sure first. After you do that, then it's a matter of finding Win 7 available to buy. That will be another challenge for you because Win 7 has been discontinued from manufacture so you will have to find a vendor that has some Win 7 still in their warehouse. Start with amazon.com because they keep a lot of old, discontinued software.

Every Windows machine has a local disk C:. But there is NO downgrade for any machine sold with 10. You need to buy whatever operating system disk you want to go to and do a clean install by booting from it. Then use the advanced option to delete ALL partitions and create a new one to load on. Before you do that you must make sure there are drivers written for whatever OS on that machine.

Gotta buy Windows 7 first, then install it. It will overwrite your Windows 10 copy.
