  1. And when you decide a couple of weeks later when the “Go back to earlier build” option no longer exists?

    1. Hey, Ian!
      Firstly, Thanks for the comment.
      If the “Go back to earlier build” option no longer exist then you can go back via boot mode.
      You can try pressing F11 to go to the boot mode when powering on the computer.
      Once you’re on Advanced startup menu, choose Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Go back to the previous build, and then follow the instruction which I mentioned in the article.

      1. That still won’t work as windows automatically deletes the ‘old’ version, that you wish to downgrade to, after 10 days so save on space.

        1. Correct John – thanks to both of you.
          I just want to go back to 1709 without any nuclear options. Windows File Explorer has always had a quirky problem [on and off] when copying files [2-3 Gb] over a LAN from a STB.

          The program Q-Dir solved that issue. Now under Vers 1803 all the old file copy problems have returned along with a whole new one.

          Mr. Google offers nothing particularly useful.
