Hello,
I have a Lenovo ThinkPad tablet. It was originally loaded with 8 but was upgraded to 10. I think I did it just to try 10, but forgot to go back to 8. Since I am well out of the 30 day grace period, is there a way to go back to 8 without spending money? Sorry, I can't read/or see the model number. Thanks for your help

It is a tablet. You'll have to know / learn how to boot the bios or get
an understanding of how to recover or return to a previous installation.
You should consider getting help from Lenovo.

There is online help available if you search for it.
Go Back to the Previous Version of Windows in Windows 10

Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

A Tablet should include an embedded key which means that a return to 8 should not cost anything.
Lenovo support could help you with this.

Since Windows 10 is designed for touch devices,
you might reconsider why 10 is an issue and attempt to find a fix to make it work.

Windows 8 / 8.1 are fine for a techie, but they are technologically backward.
