Windows 10: Revert Task View button to pre-update version

    Revert Task View button to pre-update version


    In the most recent update, my task view button changed from displaying everything on one screen and having the desktops on the bottom to having a scroll bar and putting the desktops on the top. Is there any way to revert this or do I have to revert the update to reverse this?

    Welcome to TenForums @Midn8

    What you are seeing is an 'enhanced' Task View known as Timeline. If you turn it off you'll revert to the old Task View. You may find it useful (as I have) once you get used to it. TenForums tutorials can help...

    Hello guys

    I turned Timeline off but the Task View still in the new version that has a scroll. I particularly do not like this new version and I want to get back to the old version where all apps show at once without scrolling system.

    Do you think it is possible to revert to old task view without installing previous windows build?
