Can someone please shine a light on how to rollback VS Community to a previous update?

The https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/releases/2019/history site only tracks Enterprise and Professional editions.

Is it a case of making an offline installer vslayout then using the vs_community 16.9.0 exe on top of the layout to get it back to 16.8.6 for example?

    Hi AnthonyGreen,

    You need to completely remove existing visual studio community, then download the specified version(enterprise or professional) at that site, then download community under Available tag.
