      I want to keep Windows 7 and delete Windows 10 from my dual-boot system. Can some one please lay out a step-by-step way to do that?
      Thank you,
      southie guy (aka Dick-Y from the old Windows Secrets forums)

      What boot manager are you using?

      Point that boot manager to your W7 install, remove the boot to W10

      Then after booting into W7,  just delete the W10 partition with a partition manager

      Or if you want to keep that partition, select or highlight all W10 folders & hit delete

      For hard to remove folders, use ‘unlocker’

      have a good 1 🙂 cheers
