    I meant 10 days.

    See the following:

    For a limited time after upgrading to Windows 10, you’ll be able to go back to your previous version of Windows by selecting the Start button > Settings > Update & security > Recovery and selecting Get started under Go back to the previous version of Windows 10. This will keep your personal files, but it'll remove apps and drivers installed after the upgrade, as well as any changes you made to settings. In most cases, you'll have 10 days to go back.

    Win 10 Pro (1903)

    Note e.g.
    Microsoft to Fix Windows 10 Version 1803 Freezing Issue -
    Have you got the latest updates for 1803 which might have fixed this by now?
    (See the News section to check - thread per update per build, complete with manual download links).

    You might try this:
    Windows 10 Spring Update 1803: Random Freezing - Anyone Else? - Page 3
    Turns out that disabling hardware acceleration on Chrome and Edge fixes the freezing issues when using them.
    had to download and re-install the latest Nvidia driver,
    If the first doesn't help, try playing with your graphics driver - latest or older version.

    As regards reverting to the previous build:
    a. You can clean install it (yes, I know..) - iso's freely available.
    b. We constantly and repeatedly urge users to use disk imaging routinely. If you had a disk image of your 1709 build, you could simply restore it. Done. Painless (almost).

    E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + external storage for disk image sets.

    Good practise is to update your disk image before and after a major change. Think and act defensively.
