How can I update my Acer windows vista to an earlier windows version?

My acer currently has windows vista. I want to update to an earlier version of windows. How can I do that?

Short summary:

  • Upgrading directly from Vista to 10 or 11 is not an option.
  • The first step is to install Windows 7 and then proceed with the upgrade to Windows 10 or 11.
  • Alternatively, you can purchase Windows 10 or 11 directly.

Hello, thank you for using Howly.
Got it, to which version do you wish to change?

The one the most recent that my laptop can handle.

Unfortunately, you can't directly upgrade from Vista to 10 or 11
If you have a 32-bit version of Vista, you can only upgrade to a 32-bit version of Win7. If you have a 64-bit version of Vista, you can only upgrade to a 64-bit version of Win7.

OK thank you then. I am not going to upgrade windows.
good bye

I’m glad I was able to get that sorted out for you. Before you go, is there anything else I can assist you with today?
