Back to last stable OS version

Hello!

I have a question about insider program. I been in insider program for a 6years and i forgot about it(It wasnt a Dev or Beta version,if i know propely it was a RP version so yeah maybe about that i forgot about i m in Insider Program)but i would like to use the latest STABLE version. Is there any option to back without erasing all of my files? On Settings-Update Security-Reconvery i have the option to ''go back'' but i guess its a back to last version and here is a problem bcs yesteryday on build 21334 that button was grey and i had to update system to version 21354 and now its working but,if i m right i will back to 21334 version and i dont want to do that. Is there any solution for me?

Hi,
When you sign up for the Windows insider preview build, Windows warns you to that if you want to get back to the stable build, you need to reinstall Windows 10. Having to reinstall Windows 10 will mean losing out all your installed applications and associated settings.
If you do not find the option to disable the Insider preview builds, it may be indicative of the fact that you cannot disable or move out of the preview builds. In such situations, the only option left for you is to reinstall Windows 10.

Once you have reinstalled Windows 10, you will have access to the most recent stable build on your computer.
Hope above information can help you.

For the insider build, you have to navigate to Update & Security->Windows Insider Program->Stop Insider Preview Builds , take a look at:

Files can be saved by windows when performing a reset save files or a custom install.
Drivers and applications need to be reinstalled.

Yup. Usually the recommended way to stop using Insider build is to just stop receiving insider updates and wait the "stable channel" updates overwrite your insider version. As the stable channel updates catch up, you have the stable build.

If you want to immediately change to current stable build, you'll have to do clean install.
