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
- In the Windows search bar, enter: appwiz.cpl
This will launch the dialog box for uninstalling programs and updates.
- Click on View installed updates
- Scroll down to the section titled: Microsoft Windows
- Click on the specific update to be removed
- Click on Uninstall
It might take a few minutes to uninstall, and most likely will force a restart of the computer.
