A month ago, I had to upgrade from Windows 8 to windows 10 on my PC, Microsoft gave me a month for trial .. after the month expired I can't edit my files on Word, Excel etc ... they're telling to purchase the software which I'm not willing ... I tried to upgrade back to Windows 8 ... but I couldn't .. it seems like they're blocking me from doing so ... is there any other way I can upgrade back to Windows 8?

  • The place to ask this would be superuser.com I am sure they already have this question actually. Cheers! – Nicolas Raoul Jul 29 '16 at 3:06

On free option to be able to edit your MS Office files, (Word, Excel, etc.), without reverting to Windows 8 is to install LibreOffice.

LibreOffice is:

  • Free, Gratis & Open Source
  • Cross Platform including Windows
  • Can create and edit Word documents in Write
  • Can create and edit Excel spreadsheets in Calc
  • Can create and edit PowerPoint presentations in Impress
  • etc.
