  • Returning to Windows 8 from Windows 8.1 would require reformatting your drive and performing a "clean install" of Windows 8.

    So why do you find Windows 8.1 "horrible and not usable"?  Do you have any specific questions?

  • Hi, Saim,

    There is no any other better way to revert your system but make a clean install.

    Thank you for your understanding.

  • Hi,

    which cmd commands do not work? Could you give an example? )As far as I know the set of available cmd line commands has not been reduced with Windows 8.1.)

    Also "WiFi issues" may not have to do with Windows, the installation time may be some coincidence to some other impacting factor, which may well be outside of your computer.
