Many people are wondering how they can uninstall the new update of Windows 10 to fix the ongoing issues. There are plenty of various methods of reverting Windows 10 May Update in no time.

In this article, you are about to learn different ways of undoing Windows 10 buggy May Update. All methods and steps mentioned in our guide are 100 %% official and safe.

Caution: You Got Only 10 Days to Restore Back from the May Update

According to Microsoft, users can easily remove or uninstall a major update or patch on Windows 10 and revert to a previous state. However, it is not possible to make changes if you try to remove it ten days post the installation date. Once these ten days are passed, you won’t be able to undo this update, and your PC will remain buggy as it is.

Even if you use third-party tools to remove the update post after ten days of update, it will not happen at all, and your May Update will remain just as it is.

However, even if these ten days are over, you can still go for a clean Windows installation to fix the issues. There is also one other option called “Reset” that will allow you to fix this issue without any problem at all.
