Windows 10: Should I revert from Windows Creators

    I don't know if you have Home or Pro.

    Pro has an option to defer feature updates. In the Anniversary edition, that means some months before you get the build upgrade.
    With Home, you can only disable updates to stop that, as you don't know when it will be offered.

    In any event, there will be a date after which you get no updates for a given build.

    There is another upgrade coming this Autumn.

    I have Pro before Creators. But I have accidentally deleted the backup and windows.old files etc.

    I would have to clean install W10. But not sure if creators is suppose to be compulsary for updates, stability etc.

    I am running Crreator's Update and am not seeing any frame drop. Which games specifically are you experiencing this problem with.

    Whenever a major update is released, I tend to do a clean format install which often mitigates problems caused by an upgrade.

    Yes it is- eventually. It's very simple. MS only support a particular build for a particular time period, then no routine updates. End. Finished.

    Exception: some updates for XP etc in the light of recent cyberattacks.

    Think - how much would it cost MS to support ALL builds for ever? On that basis- you can easily see each build will not be maintained indefinitely just by thinking about it.

    So all win 10 builds installed on your PC should be Pro, assuming yours was validly licensed and activated.

    Mass Effect Andromeda. And it is only when using Nvidia drivers after 378.92. I go from 60 fps @4K Max, to about 43 fps with any driver that is newer.

    As soon as I revert back to 378.92 I am back to 60fps with ease. But then HDR look different and possibly not working properly with 378.92.

    There is one way that works for Home. Turn on 'metered connection' to prevent automatic downloads, then wait until the 'Features update for windows 10, version 1703' appears when you check for updates. Then you can hide the update and restart - you'll not see it offered again.

    Is just me or the latest cumulative update for Windows 10 1607 hides the "How to get Windows 10 1703" advice in Windows Update? Since I updated I don't see it anymore...
