You see, windows 10 is becoming worse and worse.

Disabled cortana, she still works in the background

Plus, My windows 10 gaming experience is bad for a game, It is a weird game called ROBLOX I was trying it out the other day and this one game "Jailbreak" lags a bit.

My specs and model:

Model: Lenovo G50-80

Processor: intel i7 5500u

Installed RAM: 4 Gigabytes

System type: 64 Bytes

Please tell me! I'm looking forward to Windows 8.1!

first of all if your laptop original comes with windows 10 usually there are no drivers from the manufacturer for 7 and 8.1 so u might be stuck with 10.also u need more ram.4gb wont cut it nowdays if u are loooking for a smooth experience.windows process will chuck that 4gb in no time.

Yeah 4GB RAM today is so 2008-2010. Take a quick walk back in history on mainstream RAM requirements for acceptable system performance:

2000 - 256MB
2002 - 512MB
2004 - 2GB
2008 - 4GB
2012 - 8GB
2016 - 16GB
2020 - 32GB (?)

There's a pattern there.
