Back to Windows 10 from Windows 11

 Microsoft gives you enough time to go back to Windows 10 after installing Windows 11, without reinstalling the system.

You can use this method if you have installed Windows 11 directly and officially without using any solutions to overcome the hardware requirements or using the Windows Insider program to test before the official system is launched.

Steps to go back to Windows 10 after installing Windows 11

This method will return you to the copy of Windows 10 you had before you installed Windows 11 with all its contents.

And you shouldn't have passed 10 days since installing Windows 11 to be able to use this method and go back to Windows 10.

You can do this by going to Settings, then System Settings, then Restore, and then Back to Windows 10.

When the Restore application has finished restoring the system and has finished the necessary preparations, you can press Restart to go back to Windows 10.

You can increase the trial period in Windows 11 for any period or number of days you wish, but provided that it is less than 60 days.

You can do this by following the following steps, head to the CMD command interface application, and then enter the following command in it

DISM /Online /Set-OSUninstallWindow /Value:[X]

And put the number of days you want instead of the X in the above command, the number must be greater than 2 days and less than 60 days.

You can check the number of days remaining in your trial period and the period during which you are allowed to return by entering the following command:

DISM /Online /Get-OSUninstallWindow

Prevent automatic or accidental upgrade

There have been some cases online where the system automatically updated itself without asking the user, when the user pressed check for updates.

This caused inconvenience to some users who did not want to upgrade to Windows 11 yet, but Microsoft added a feature that allows you to control this matter.

You can prevent the system from automatically upgrading and continuing to receive updates for Windows 10 by following these steps:

First of all, make sure that you are using the September update or later in Windows 10, and then head to Computer Management.

Then choose Administrative Templates, then Windows Components, then select Windows Updates and finally Windows Updates for Business.

You will find there an option called Select the updates you want to receive, and then activate this option and then enter Windows 10 in the system box.

This feature keeps your Windows 10 system up to date without the need to upgrade to Windows 11.
