CHANG­ING YOUR MIND

ONCE YOU’VE IN­STALLED THE FALL CRE­ATORS UPDATE, YOU’RE GIVEN A PE­RIOD OF 10 DAYS TO TEST OUT THE NEW FEA­TURES.

If, dur­ing that time, you don’t like the update, or there are prob­lems that pre­vent your PC from work­ing, then you can eas­ily roll back to a pre­vi­ous ver­sion of Win­dows 10.

To do this, go to ‘Set­tings > Update & se­cu­rity > Re­cov­ery’ and click on ‘Get started’ un­der where it says ‘Go back to the pre­vi­ous ver­sion of Win­dows 10’. A win­dow will ap­pear ask­ing you why you want to re­vert to a pre­vi­ous ver­sion. An­swer the ques­tion (this helps Mi­crosoft im­prove fu­ture ver­sions of Win­dows), then click ‘No, thanks’ from the next win­dow. This is where you’ll be asked you if you want to check for any up­dates.

Click ‘Next’ on the win­dow that fol­lows, then ‘Next’ again, mak­ing sure you have your Win­dows lo­gin de­tails handy. Then click ‘Go back to ear­lier build’ and the Fall Cre­ators Update will unin­stall it­self.

Af­ter the 10-day ‘trial’ pe­riod has elapsed, you won’t be able to roll back the Fall Cre­ators Update — you’ll need to do a full Win­dows 10 re­in­stall in­stead.
