Install Optional “Quality” Update:
If you go to the Windows Update screen (Settings → Update & Security → Windows Update → Check for Update), you may occasionally see an option called “Optional quality update available.” These updates are designed specifically to address problems with recent Windows updates and become “proper” updates a few weeks later once they’ve been thoroughly tested.
These updates are still pretty stable, though, so may be worth a shot if a recent update has broken something on Windows 10 for you.
Uninstall Windows 10 Updates:
You can uninstall smaller Windows 10 updates by doing the following: in Windows, go to Settings → Update & Security → View update history → Uninstall updates.
In this window, scroll down in the main pane to the “Microsoft Windows” heading, and you’ll see all the KB and security updates for Windows 10, along with the dates they were installed. Simply right-click the one you want to uninstall and reboot your PC.
How to Roll Back Windows 10 Builds:
To do this, go to Windows 10 Settings, then click “Update & security → Recovery.” Below “Reset this PC,” you should see the option to “go back to the previous version of Windows 10.” Click “Get started,” then follow the steps to roll back Windows 10. Again, this option is only available for 10 days after a Windows 10 build update.
Check Your Windows 10 Build:
Before looking into rolling back and fixing broken Windows 10 updates, you need to check which build of Windows you’re currently on, which will confirm which issues are affecting you. To do this, just go to “Settings → Update & Security → View update history.”
In the new window, click the arrow next to “Feature Updates” to see the version of Windows that you’re currently using and click “Quality Updates” to see all the smaller “KB” updates you have installed.
