Though it's been a long time since they launched it, I've never heard about it before. Btw, I've recently upgraded to Windows 11, and I wish hadn't done it. I mean, it's still raw, so I'd like to downgrade it back to Windows 10. How can I do it?

Hi there! I stumbled upon this forum post and wanted to offer my input. Regarding the Windows Virtual Desktop, it's been quite some time since it was launched, so there should be ample feedback available to gauge the hosted experience on Azure. And as for downgrading from Windows 11 to Windows 10, you can get a key from this list windows 10 product key reddit. I've done the same exact thing because I can't stand their 11th version too. I still have no idea why they've released such a raw version. What do you guys think about it?
