    I have been using windows 8 for a while now and it's not tailored to my needs. I was wondering if there is any way possible that I could downgrade to windows 7?

    Only option is to clean install windows 7... Backup all your files & install windows 7...

    I would also contact Microsoft or your computer manufacture for downgrade rights. If you don't want to go through the hassle, Windows Loader is always an option as well as a SLIC 2.1 bios mod for licensing.

    I would second that.

    If you've an legal Product Key for Windows 7, contact MS as described.
