✔ Best Answer
I believe that you will need to format your hard disk and start from scratch with your Windows 7 install DVD. I don't think it is possible to downgrade an installation in the way that you upgrade. You will need to save any data that you wish to keep before doing this.

Have you tried altering the compatiility settings on the games? I haven't yet found anything that doesn't work fine on Windows 8.

If you happen to mean the MS Games, there is a fiddle to make them run on Windows 8.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Re #3

Don't think I can help on this but did you try the Windows 7 Minecraft version?
I've found that quite a bit of Win 7 desktop stuff runs nicely on Windows 8.

Another possibility is to run Win 7 as a virtual machine then run Minecraft on that
(not that I claim to be an expert on VM's).

Whether you are 32 or 64 bit might also come into the equation.
