After a few months of using the Linus system, many users decide to return to Windows. This is often due to the fact that the Linux system is quite complex and requires a certain amount of know-how and computer skills. In the rest of this article, we will show you how to switch from Linux to Windows.

The preliminaries

When you decide to switch from one operating system to another, it is important to back up your data on an external medium or online. Several clouds exist and allow you to back up the most important data so as not to lose any information. If the data to be backed up is too large, you will need to buy an external hard drive with a large enough capacity to hold the data to be backed up. Once you have backed up all your information, you must now format the disk that will contain the Windows operating system. Formatting can be done directly from the Linux system when the installation disk is different from the main disk. It can also be done during the installation using the command prompt or the Linux terminal. After this step, you just need to create a bootable USB.

The actual installation

To install the Windows system, you can do it directly from the Linux operating system, but it is also possible to do it by rebooting the computer. In this case, you will have to click on the F5 key or the F12 key. All you have to do is follow the different steps of the installation. This is a very simple process. During the installation, you will have to insert the operating licence. If you have not yet purchased it from Microsoft, you will have to complete the installation before thinking of purchasing it from the official Microsoft website. You have up to 80 days to purchase the licence and activate it. You now have your operating system. The next step is to take the basic software that is essential for using the computer. This includes word processing and other software. Depending on the use you want to make of your computer, download the appropriate software.
