Hey everyone!

Earlier today I tried to switch from the dev channel to another channel (beta) and it seemed to have worked somehow?

 

Usually if I choose beta or release preview channels and going back a page, it still shows that the dev channel is selected (as you can't change from dev channel unless a clean install is done).

 

This time, I tried again, and it's showing that the beta channel is chosen, even after a restart.

Would it mean that it worked? Could it be a small timeframe when it's possible to change channels due to the near release of the new Windows 11?

 

If that's the case, this could be a great opportunity for anyone who wants to leave the dev channel!

 

I will report back in some weeks if I actually switched channel from future windows updates.
