When the Creators Update for Windows 10 was initially announced, users were thrilled that they had the option of postponing all future updates – for a limited time, but still an improvement. Now that the update is making its way to all Windows-operated computers, Microsoft is urging users not to install it manually due to stability issues.
The Latest Update Comes with Issues of Its Own
Usually, updates are meant to fix certain bugs or software problems, but Microsoft managed to create an update that comes with plenty of issues of its own. While the company’s official blog post didn’t provide any details on the nature of the problems, it seems like some users experienced connectivity problems with their Bluetooth LE devices after installing the Creators Update.
More Details on the Update
According to Microsoft, the initial phase of the update targets newer devices which scored well during ISV app and OEM hardware tests. After confirming improved user experience, Microsoft was planning to release phase two, meaning a wider, more general rollout.
Until now, the millions of people who did receive the update, provided extensive feedback to the company, notifying them of various bugs and issues. Thanks to the Feedback Hub app, all users who enabled the full version of their diagnostic settings while running the app, received specialized help and associated diagnostic data.
At the moment, after analyzing user feedback, Microsoft is:
- Documenting all issues while also providing extensive information to all affected users.
- Updating Windows and working with all ISV app, PC, and accessory partners at fixing all problems.
- Deploying a block that prevents the buggy app from affecting other devices.
Seeing as Microsoft is following these three major steps when dealing with update update issues reported by users who were targeted for this phase, those who manually download the app bypass all these steps, putting their devices at risk. For that reason, the company is urging all customers not to manually install the Creators Update.
Removing the Creators Update
Microsoft made it easy for all individuals to remove the existing update. All one has to do is go to Start, click on Settings, and choose Update and Security. A Recovery option should be available. Select it and look for the Go back to the previous version of Windows 10 option. Click the Get started button right under it.
