After upgrade to Windows PRO, can i downgrade it back to HOME?

2021-05-03, 10:53 AM

We have E14 ryzer 3 thinkpads here and i wonder, if i upgrade its current / default OS from Windows Home to Windows Pro.

 

Can i downgrade it back to Home if i needed to, perhaps with Lenovo USB Recovery Creator?

Hi J.G!


Welcome to community forums

 

 

As long as you create a back of the original OS then you should not have any trouble returning it back to the preloaded OS.

The reason for the question is activation, so Microsoft doesn't try to force pro license to it?

It will not, especially if the newly installed OS is via a clean install.
