Windows 10 Creators Update is finally available to all users. Even though Microsoft officially released it today, there are some users who already run the latest Windows 10 version on their computers. Mostly because of the early availability through Windows Upgrade Assistant.

However, not everyone is as satisfied with the Creators Update as Microsoft hopes for. There are some users who, let’s say regret installing the new update. Two main reasons are dissatisfaction with offered features, or due to some system issues. Either way, these users would certainly like to roll back to the previous version, and uninstall Windows 10 Creators Update.

If you’re among them, we’ve prepared you a detailed guide on how to delete the Creators Update from your computer, and pick up where you left off with the previous version.

How to uninstall Windows 10 Creators Update from your computer

Here’s exactly what you need to do to roll back from Windows 10 Creators Update to the previous version of the system:

  1. Go to the Settings app
  2. Go to Update & security > Recovery
  3. Find the Get back to the previous version of Windows 10 option, and click Get Started
  4. Answer the question why you want to roll back, and click Next to continue
  5. Windows will offer you to check for updates one more time, which is also going to be your last chance to cancel the roll back
  6. Now, just go through the wizard, follow instructions, and click Go back to earlier build
  7. The roll back will start, and once it’s done, you’ll get to the previous version

That’s about it. If you change your mind eventually, you can always get back to the Creators Update by updating your current version of the system. And if you want to prevent the update from appearing again, check out this article.
