I bought a new computer that came with Windows 8. I can't get any of my programs to work and want to go back to Windows 7. They said I have to purchase the full version. Tell me exactly what I need to go back. I need to use my software that is not compatible in 8. I have a Toshiba Portege 935 with solid state drive and I3 processor
Windows 8 has had no compatibility issue for me. I do hate the GUI. Very first thing I do is install Classic Shell ( http://classicshell.sourceforge.net/ ) Makes the interface be what ever you want it to be.
I have Adobe Photoshop 6 and it will not install on this new computer. I also have a Sony IC recorder and the Digital Voice Editor software it requires will not install either. I use both of these on a daily basis in my job as a journalist. I love the computer but absolutely hate the OS.
