The good thing about Windows 10 is that it provides users with regular intervals. When you get bored with the operating system, Microsoft releases a new update. If you don’t know, Microsoft also has a beta channel for insiders that allows users to test the experimental features of the operating system. After passing the testing phase, the features get released to the stable build.

The problem with Dev, Beta, and Release preview channel builds is that they are usually full of bugs. Most often or not, users face issues while using the operating system. What’s worst is that it’s not easy to get out of the Insider program once new builds start shipping.

Microsoft provides a ten-day time frame to roll back to the previous update. If that period is gone, there’s not easy to uninstall the problematic update. So, if you are also experiencing issues with Windows 10 updates, you need to find and remove the problematic update. Or else, you can roll back to an older build.

So, in this article, we will share the best method to roll back Windows updates. The process is a little complicated, but it works. So, let’s check out.
