Windows 10: Opting out of Insider programme

    Opting out of Insider programme


    If someone pulls out of the insider programme what happens next, do you stay on the last Preview or do you go back to the latest stable build you installed or the latest stable build thats out at the moment and can you lose anything in the process.

    I've been doing this for years and have never pulled out of these beta and insider programmes.

    I'm basing this on the fact that the machines were setup and activated before entering the Insider programme.

    Also if you used a hdd with a preview build from the start, but the computer is activated with a genuine build, what would happen to the hdd with the preview alone on it.

    You remain in the version that you are using which may be ok. Your next opportunity to upgrade keeping all files will be when either an Insider iso is released, or the next official version is released. You can reinstall older release version but you cannot keep files etc.

    Are you sure, I just read that you go back to the last stable release in another section on this forum. Thats why I'm asking these a questions there seems to be different answers.

    Every time I have pulled out of the Windows beta test program, I always clean install the latest retail version. I guess you don't have to do that, but I always do.

    Thats exactly not what I'm asking, I'm asking what happens.
