How to go back to Windows 10?

Occasional Visitor

I recently updated to Windows 11 using the insider program but ran into many bugs with some applications. How would I go back to Windows 10?

Hello @stevethemannguyen,

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click on System.
  3. Click the Recovery page on the right side.

  4. Under the "Recovery options" section, in the "Previous version of Windows" settings, click the Go back button.

    Quick note: If the option is not available, you may need to use the reinstallation process as outlined below.

  5. Select any of the reasons available.

  6. Click the Next button.
  7. Click the No, thanks button.

  8. Click the Next button.

  9. Click the Next button again.

  10. Click the Go back to earlier build button.

@oleksand_bakun   you say if you don't see the option to go back, see reinstallation instructions below.  Then you never post those reinstallation instructions.  Can you tell me how?


@stevethemannguyen Hi.

To return to Windows10 - you need to perform a clean installation of Windows10 , which will clean everything ( your files and applications will be deleted - make copies ) read the instructions from this link:
