It’s fair to say Microsoft has largely gotten its act together. Windows 10 is now comfortable, and the biannual update cycle is popular with many users.
But maybe you just upgraded and you’re unhappy. If so, Microsoft is flexible enough to let you rollback and uninstall updates. It’s an easy process and doesn’t take a massive amount of time. We’ll show you how to rollback and uninstall the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update:
- Go to Start > Settings.
- Open Update and Security.
- Click on Recovery in the left-hand menu.
- Head to Go back to the previous version of Windows 10 > Get started.
The rollback process should now begin. If it fails to launch, one of two things has probably happened. Either you’ve manually deleted the old Windows file using Disk Cleanup, or it’s more than 30 days since you installed the Fall Creators Update and Windows has deleted the old files automatically.
Remember, these instructions only apply to the Fall Creators Update. The process changes slightly with each release.
Do you like the Fall Creators Update, or have you rolled back to the original release? Let us know in the comments below.
