    Did you try copying off the user folder from your MR image to a regular disk?

    Not yet, Ken. I am slightly overwhelmed, as my printer now prints every second page up-side-down when I print on both sides of papers, and taskbar stuff that should be (and was) shown on the primary monitor now shows up on another monitor. I think MS has lost control.

    I will read your message again and try later today. Thanks!

    For printing funny check the "The flip on ..... " setting. Sometimes hidden. Flip on long edge or short can make things a mess.

    I am going back to v 1809. However, I can not find an ISO file for that version. Does anyone have one or know a URL that actually have old ISOs? Thank you!

    If you upgraded within the last 10 days you can 'Go back to previous' build - it's a built-in option that uses Windows.old.

    Otherwise you can restore the disk image you hopefully created or updated before upgrading (e.g. Macrium Reflect - free) - so often recommended here.

    Using an 1809 iso would not help you, unless you created a bootable medium, which you can also do still with MS's media creation tool. (Just search for it if you need it)

    In that event you would then be doing a clean install.

    Dalchina, I finally found an ISO file for 1809. Hope it is clean :-( I have just finished creating a bootable DVD from the ISO file.)

    I need to do a clean install, because my previous 1809 was corrupt (a few files; could never find out which ones). However, I will never update to 1903 again; will read reviews carefully of future versions. What a nightmare these last few days have been.

    Thanks for all your kind help (and thanks to others as well, Ken among them). Should you know an URL with a guaranteed clean downloadable 1809 ISO, kindly let me know (most web pages 'advertising' one are now actually 1903 ISO).
