I'm pulling my hair out here. I "upgraded" to W11 on launch day, but use a Ryzen CPU. Obviously performance issues on my generation of CPU are well known now, so I rolled back to W10 on my 10th day (thought I'd give MS a chance to fix it, but their update made things worse somehow).

Anyway, this is now causing me big issues. W11 is automatically downloading. It gives me no "would you like to download" or anything like that. Nope, it just does it itself without any prompts.

I've turned off TPM since, but in Windows Updates (settings) it shows that W11 is 100% downloaded, and I'm not dreading turning off my computer. If W11 does install again, will I be given another 10 days to roll back to W10, or will the 10 day timer go from when I first installed this?

Surely W11 shouldn't install right after the rollback to W10. This is ridiculous.

EDIT: Yep W11 is now installing (with TPM & secure boot turned off). Super.
Download might be happen automatically but installation would need your permission so if you don't click to install, it won't install.
Now if you upgrade to Windows 11, you will given 10 days to roll back but if you don't want to upgrade to Windows 11, I suggest wait and do not upgrade.
You are unfortunately wrong. When I move back to Windows 10, not everything works. I have to install some optional updates, and some search for cumulative updates. So, you have to click "check for updates". When you click this, everything installs yes, but this includes Windows 11. It does not ask do you want to upgrade, it doesn't give you a choice, it just does it.

I've rolled back to Windows 10, 3 times now and every time you click check for updates, Windows 11 installs. Yes I could not click that, but if I don't install some optional things, then things just do not work.
This is not the expected behavior and you should be able to control it.
I advise you to open start and search for feedback and open Feedback Hub app and report this issue.
Try open Windows Update and click on Advanced options and uncheck "Received update for other Microsoft products when you update Windows".
