    Can I download the 9926 ISO and revert back?


    I recently upgraded to 10041, thinking after all the time spent, things would work a little better.. apparently, it didn't make things easier.

    I was just wondering if I can download the 9926 ISO and revert back to that and keep my files and everything?

    Hello Arcturus,

    Since you updated to build 10041, you could use the "go back to a previous version of Windows" feature in the tutorial below to go back to build 9926.

    It's a common problem with Win 10. Some features break after upgrade/downgrade. What you should have done was to create an ISO of your 10041 upgrade and do a clean install straight to it. Clean install fixes a lot of problems. It's easy. Follow this tutorial (but first, upgrade back to 10041 from your current 9926. No need to reinstall 9926.)

    Ok, I didn't know the severity of your current installation's issues so you may have to reinstall 9926 then.

    At this point a clean install of 9926 should be the next thing you do. . .Good Luck. . .
