    Uninstall Win10 updates

    My PC (WIn10) was bombarded with new updates. After install, all my Win10 settings, desk top, start screen, games folder were gone and my PC was back to the ugly Win10 screen. The last updates I received(4-23-17) was KB4013418 & KB4015217 which I believe caused my problem. I tried to uninstall the updates but was told it would not uninstall as it was needed by the program.
    Any solution to this?

    Hi, Ugly Win 10 screen? I'm just wondering if you might be seeing the start menu full screen, or are in tablet mode.

    Can you post a screenshot? (Icon to left of the video icon above your post). Thanks.

    Do you have two monitors? Try disconnecting the second.

    Otherwise: do you have any system restore points or disk images (which we strongly and repeatedly recommend) which you can use?

    Otherwise the only way I can think of for you to go backwards in build would be to do an in-place upgrade repair install (takes you back to your current base build).

    I have both updates, and more, no problems.
    KB4015217 can be uninstalled.

Will programs uninstall properly with Win10?
I've been wondering, why when a program is uninstalled does it not uninstall every last bit of it? Will Windows 10 do a better job, or is it not as simple as that?
