10 days to go back to Windows 10 after installing unofficial Windows 11

If you install Windows 11, you will only have 10 days to go back to Windows 10

We know that Windows 11 will be a free update for all Windows 10 users, and that we can update directly from the Windows Update section without having to do a clean install, however, before updating, it’s good to know that there is a period that if you cross it you can’t go back.

In the case of the new Windows operating system, this grace period will be only 10 days. This is how Microsoft explained it in a recently published support document with answers to frequently asked questions about Windows 11: Once updated, you’ll be able to perform an automatic rollback while keeping all your files and data as if nothing happened.

It’s an interesting change, because this grace period was also in place when we upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 10, but in this case, we had up to 30 days to roll back. After that time, you will have to perform a clean install of Windows 10 by formatting your computer to install the system before it.

With this information in hand, it is important that after you update to Windows 11, you will have only 10 days to roll back by returning for free to Windows 10, if you exceed this period, you will have to format the device and install Windows 10 from scratch.
