    I would like to be sure of one thing:

    If I had an upgraded system and installed the latest testing build of Windows 10 that, for example, was released a week ago, the updates, that are installed this week from Windows Update and from the Microsoft Store, are completely eliminated. Right?

    Thanks

    My understanding is that the insider builds that are released contain all the updates of the standard windows and also include additional updates that relate to the new build.

    So, following my example, the updates, that were installed this week, would be completely deleted from the system or not?

    Thanks

    No, you have a new build which already has the updates ahead of everyone else.

    So how do I completely delete these updates so that I get a clean image of this build?

    Thanks

    If you want a clean installation then you have to do a clean install which will start by removing all traces of your previous installation including all your personal files and apps. You would need to have backup copies of all your files to do this.

    By chance, among the Windows 10 1703 policies, is there a way to block the downloading of all updates except those that allow the installation of the latest testing build?

    Thanks

    I really feel there is a misunderstanding here.

    If you upgrade a build, files that are needed are added, and even old ones will get overwritten etc.

    The upgrade sorts it all out, otherwise builds would grow inexorably but they do not.

    If you want to clean install, you need to create your own iso - see uup to iso tutorials.
