    How to start recovery to Windows 7 without any working Settings screen.

    My Start menu isn't working in Windows 10, I get an error for Explorer.exe crashing every two minutes.
    I tried to acces the Settings menu through several ways, but it will never start or giving me a pop up message why it wont start.

    To revert back to Windows 7 I need to be in the Recovery screen which is part of the Settings screen, but nothing seems to work.

    :)

  3. How to get back to Windows 7 without the recovery screen freezing?

    I have tried to go back to Windows 7 after installing Windows 10. Once I chose to go back to Windows 7 the screen that pops up and says "This won't take long" all I get is the the circle that just keeps going around and around and never got any further.
    I do not want to keep Windows 10. Any help would be appreciated.
