Rolling Back Windows Updates

From time to time, Microsoft may release a Windows patch that causes issues with parts of operating system (printing, connectivity, stability issues). And to resolve those issues in a timely fashion, the patch may need to be rolled back (removed).

Steps for Removing A Windows Update Patch

  1. In the Windows search bar, enter: appwiz.cpl

    This will launch the dialog box for uninstalling programs and updates.
  2. Click on View installed updates

  3. Scroll down to the section titled: Microsoft Windows

  4. Click on the specific update to be removed
  5. Click on Uninstall

    It might take a few minutes to uninstall, and most likely will force a restart of the computer.
