If I was to install Windows 11 from the Beta channel, later on when things catch up is it possible to move to the preview channel or am I stuck with it?

I know I can't with the Dev channel so interested to know if its the same for the Beta.

Thanks

Hello @Hackett725,

 

You can easily switch between Beta and Release Preview channels using Windows Insider Program settings, no reinstall required:

Hope this answers your query!
