Windows 11 was pushed on my laptop although I have the setting disabled for insider builds. I didn't want this nor liked it. I'm exceptionally not fond of the new Mac feel of the menus. I'd rather make a clean reinstall than keep it. Thanks for the article, literally saved me.

Thank you for this article! I tried out Windows 11, and based on what I use Windows for it works well. I like some of the changes! I'm sure the overall interface will freak out some people, but for me I liked how the network settings showed brief information about the connection, such as which WiFi protocol it utilized and what band as well as link speed. The new interface does feel kinda Android like though...

The brief trial I did with this new OS will be enough for me to switch to it when it comes out officially. I am grateful that I was able to get back on Windows 10 though. I was a bit hasty to try out Windows 11, and was not prepared to lose Windows 10 in case of any bugs! For me, all of my programs worked as intended. I feel that Windows 11 is Windows 10 with a different interface shell.

Rolling back did NOT delete any data for me. In fact, I haven’t noticed anything out of place since the rollback as far as preferences or settings go – it’s like I never tried the update!

That being said, I ensured that I had my data backed up BEFORE the upgrade. You never know when an OS upgrade or downgrade will go awry. I was fully prepared to reinstall win10 if I needed to.

hi everyone,

I have this problem with a twist: I was receiving Preview Builds in my Win 10 Pro, then Win 11 was offered to install, I quit the Insider Program, but it went on offering to install (Pending Restart). Microsoft writes that some parts of Insider Program are managed by my "organization", but this is a private laptop with no "organization" attached to it..

I tried to find info on how to detach the PC from the "organization" but couldn't find anything helpful.

Now I've deleted the files in the update folder as described in the original post above, so now it's says there's an update error and Windows will try to "fix" it, so I suspect it will re-download Win 11 suggested update again?

Is there a possible out of this situation? I opted out of Insider program, but it doesn't seem to help.
