How to Leave the Windows Insider Program in Windows 10/11

If you are using Windows 10 and wish to give the new operating system – Windows 11 a try, you need to join the Windows Insider Program.

It’s pretty easy to join the Windows Insider Program on Windows 10 and Windows 11. If you join the Windows Insider Program, your PC will be eligible to receive the Beta, Dev, and Release Preview Updates.

However, the problem with joining the Windows Insider Program is that it often asks you to install updates that are not stable. Since Insider builds aren’t as stable as the release version of Windows, users may like to avoid such updates.

If you do not unenroll your computer from the Windows Insider Program, your PC will continue to receive those unstable updates. So, if you have limited internet bandwidth and you do not want to install the unstable versions of Windows, it’s best to leave the Insider Program.
