    How close am I to opting out of slow ring? My build is 19041.153


    I have been itching to get out of Win Instiders. I don't want to go through the pain of a clean install if opting out is around the corner. The option for opting out of flighting is turned on. Am I a few days, a few weeks or a few months away from this happening magically?

    Welcome to Ten Forums @RGIII


    You will be able to opt out once 2004 goes on general release. In the normal course of events 2004 would go to the Release Preview ring by the end of April and be released to the public some time in May. This time last year 1903 was released on 21st May.

    But these are not normal times. Microsoft has already reacted to the coronavirus by postponing the end of service for 1709 by three months and has paused all optional cumulative updates. Microsoft pausing all optional non-security releases (C and D updates)

    The next logical step would be to postpone the launch of 2004.

    One would hope the cautions 'way back' were paid attention to when getting into the Technical Preview program, which became the Insider Preview, were not installed on the only computer available or a production/important computer. Test/BETA Operating Systems and other programs can be problematic, should not be relied upon to remain trouble free, both of mine are older [rehabbed instead of landfill] but haven't had many problems with them. I sometimes, in reading about issues, think maybe the computers and the OS are not keeping pace with each other, the hardware gets ahead of the software or maybe the software gets ahead of the hardware in anticipating what is coming.

    So, you are saying if I have an itch, it probably won't be scratched until after May? Translated: there's a good chance that the general release of 2004 won't happen any time soon, correct? Can someone point the way to the least painful way to revert to the last stable version and keep all their installed programs?? A suggested url is all I need.

    You can opt out and keep the build you have or you can use The Media Creation Tool shown below but unless you have a back up of 1909 you will need to do a clean install.
