Hey, I know this would not sound that familiar but hear me out! My laptop is old and entry level one. It runs the windows 10 2015 version. I updated it to the latest version which is 20h2. It was really very laggy and slow , so I rolebacked to the original version of Windows. Now I want a newer version but not the latest one. Like 1609 or 1703 etc.

    As of the moment, you can only upgrade to latest version, as Microsoft provides only latest version media to public. Moreover, the version such as 1809 or earlier released versions, already reached their end of support. So there is no point of installing them. I suggest you to upgrade your system specifications and keep using the latest version.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi,

    The fastest way to get the upgrade is through Media creation tool or ISO file.
    Please download Media Creation Tool from the link below and select Upgrade this PC at the first screen:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

    This will save your files and apps while bringing you up to the latest version by the most stable method. It will also bring all of your Updates current and solve most problems since it reinstalls Windows.

    The only public download on microsoft.com is the latest version.
    Other options may be the volume licensing center or via visual studio subscription downloads (assuming you have access).
    If you insist on using the old version, you can try the following methods:
    Microsoft no long offer the links to get earlier released versions, even though the ISO is still on their servers. You can use Option Six in this tutorial to get the ISO direct from the following link:
    Download Windows 10 ISO File

    Hope above information can help you.
