Windows 10: Has anyone reverted back from April Update.

    Has anyone reverted back from April Update.

    I'm asking since I'm thinking about doing it since I want to go back since there are a few bug issues I don't like.

    Just revert back if you want to.

    And I`ll say it again, it`s much too soon to update to 1803.

    Unless you have to then don't update yet, 1709 works great.

    Wait 3 or 4 months to install 1803.

    I haven't got any issues. What specifically are you having issues with?
    I had the normal major update issue of resetting my shares and network settings, but I'm used to having to fix them.

    Consider doing a clean format install of 1803 and see how that goes before reverting back.

    Well I just wanna revert since I believe I'am getting audit failures thanks to it. Is it safe to revert?

    I rolled back, used Macrium Reflect to restore to a point before I installed the update, only because I want to wait until Microsoft releases the Intel Microcode update for 1803, I don't like the idea of rolling back security to install 1803.

    Well the issues I'am having are the Audit failure because of the xbox app for some reason.

    And this from another post I made
    Lock screen oddities after April update. - Windows 10 Forums

    I'm kinda tittering on what I should do, I guess if I have no major issue I shouldn't do anything?

    If those are the only issues, I wouldn't revert the entire Build for such minor things. Regarding the Lock screen issue, try disabling it and then test. Personally, I used Option 2 in Brink's tutorial below, on most computers that I support, incl mine, since people don't need to view Date/time or the extra click to get to login screen. After the 1803 Upgrade, the registry entry carried over too.
