    How do I delete any previous updates?


    When I download and install a new testing build from Windows Update, any subsequent updates to it, that have been downloaded and installed by Windows Update and Microsoft Store before this build, are completely deleted or not? If not, how do I delete this updates?

    Thanks

    Bye

    You can do an extended disk clean of your system which will get rid of the old windows update files and many other things related to previous windows installations by following option 2 in this tutorial:

    With this method, all installed updates, that were released after you installed the testing build, are uninstalled. Right?

    Thanks

    You have to select what you want to delete by using the check boxes. If you only want to delete old windows installations just check that box. There is help provided for each line item so you can decide if it is what you want to do.

    In other words, after this, I'll have a clean image of the testing build just installed?

    In other words, when you install a testing build, any subsequent updates to this build will be automatically deleted?

    Thanks
