    Hello smileye,

    Usually when you're not able to stop receiving Insider builds, you will need to reinstall Windows 10. Did you install Windows 10 using an Insider build ISO?

    You could try doing a repair install instead without losing anything to see if you will no longer be an Insider afterwards.

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    Thanks for reply Brink

    My win 10 is an upgrade from 7
    so I have no ISO or USB media for the repair .

    In your experience would a reset or refresh be the preferred option?

    You can download a Windows 10 ISO using OPTION ONE below it you wanted to try a repair install.

    A reset or refresh will work, but you would lose a lot everything with a reset, and all apps with a refresh.

    You wouldn't lose anything doing a repair install, but there's no guarantee that it will work. If it doesn't, then you could still do a reset or refresh though.

    Wonder if I will fall foul of this:


    • The installation media (ex: ISO or USB) must be the same edition and build as your currently installed Windows 10. If it's not, then the repair install will fail.

      I can see my build is Insider preview 11099 , wonder what version is on the USB I d/loaded + created ?
      Will it be different ?

    If you still have the ISO file, you could use the method in the tutorial below to see what its build number is.

Views: 99
Size:  24.0 KB

    What I'll do is just change the setting to Slow from Fast Insider
    (best work around ) .. as I don't want to reinstall apps etc .
    ( i think I've installed 3 to 4 Builds over the last few months ,
    all great build -- bar the last one
    where I couldn't run the game star citizen )

    Thanks for the help Brink ..

    In that case, it's not for the same build as you currently have installed since you won't be able to keep anything.

    I was an insider on my previous MB. Now with a new MB I have an activated W10 RTM version running.
    Goal is to have RTM on one drive and Insider ver on another drive like previous setup.
    So far I have not received any insider updates or do I have to d/l an insider iso and use my RTM key?
    Its been a year+ since I did this and the method has slipped thru the cracks...

    Hello meebers,

    Double check to see if you are set to be in the fast ring. Sometimes is may take a day afterwards though.
