How To Restore Windows 10 PC
Windows 10 is known for introducing bugs and technical issues with its updates. However, whenever Win 10 is updated, the previous build version is still stored on your PC and if the latest build is causing problems for users, then they can just revert the OS back to the previous stable build.
If 30 days have been passed since the update or the user has deleted the “Windows.old” folder, then the user won’t be able to revert back to the previous build unless they have manually created a system image as a backup. Here is how to restore Win 10 to a previous build or restore your OS from a system image.
Step 1: Open Settings by clicking the Start menu and selecting the gear icon.
Step 2: Select “Update & Security”
Step 3: Click on “Recovery”
Step 4: Click on “Restart Now” under Advanced Startup.
After the PC is restarted, the OS will open a troubleshooter. Select “Troubleshoot” > Advanced Options > System Restore. Your system will restart again and this time you’ll select your account and input the password. After that, the setup will start.
Click “Next” > select the restore point or previous build that you want to restore > click “Next” > click “Finish”. These steps will also allow users to restore Windows 10 to a previous build.
