So then what`s the point of installing Windows 7 on a PC in which you use Windows 8.1 everyday ?

It's because there are certain things I liked in Windows 7, that are not present in Windows 8.1

That last statement makes me curious, sorry What was in Win 7 that is missing in Win 8.1?

Want to give a quick update, so far I am having no issues as of yet, the only things that have been installed the Wireless Driver, the Display Driver, my anti-virus, and the program that enables the function key, haven't done updates yet, but I will get to them soon, just waiting for my stuff to get on there and the stuff not available in Windows 8.1 is the ability to play DVD's in Windows Media Player, no Media Center, the touchpad seems to want to act up and jump all over the screen(this can be fixed by just using the wireless mouse), and my speakers aren't loud enough because the program version of that driver sucks honestly

Okay, thanks. As I said, I was just curious.

You don't need Media Center to play DVDs in Windows Media Player, I do it all the time. I finally installed VLC Media Player because it has support for more formats than WMP.

The driver issues can be killer though.

Do you have the latest touchpad software from the PC model's Support Downloads webpage? There should also be a setting on one of that software's tabs to Disable Touchpad when USB mouse is detected so that you don't get palm-drag or other interference from Touchpad. I use that every day.

Importing these drivers or even extra software for that feature is called for when they are not functioning correctly or a feature like Hotkeys is missing. This is explained in Clean Reinstall Windows 7

yes, the driver came through Windows Update on Windows 8.1, I had to go to my actual PC manufacturer's website to get the driver on Windows 7, everything seems to be running good so far, now I am just waiting on updates to download and install and then I will activate once I know for sure all updates installed, all my hotkeys are working correctly in both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1

Watch the Start Menu Shutdown button for yellow ! mark to install queued updates because there is a problem lately with them ignoring User input after fresh install and all Important Updates queueing there for install.

It might take waiting til they all install that way before Optional Updates become available, which is where some drivers are queued.

Let us know how you experience this because I am talking with MS about it now.

I am thinking about disabling that whole entire thing because I know there is a tutorial on here somewhere that tells you how to disable and enable
