The Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803) is rolling out worldwide as a free update for compatible desktops, laptops, and tablets. The new version delivers a new set of features and changes to improve productivity, performance, and security.
However, a new release also means new potential problems because feature updates are not the same as those quality updates you get every month. Instead, every new release of Windows 10 goes through significant code restructuring which can introduce compatibility issues as well as bugs that can negatively impact the experience. Unfortunately a lot of random problems regarding touch-screens and other HID devices occur (even Microsoft own Surface is suffering from this problem). Until Microsoft has an patch available that will fix this issues we recommend to roll back to version 1709 in the meantime.
How can I go back to Windows 10 1709?
Make sure you’re signed into Windows 10 with the administrator account. Open the Settings app and go to the Update & Security group of settings. Select the Recovery tab and scroll down to the ‘Go back to the previous version of Windows 10’ section. Click ‘Get Started’.
Windows 10 will ask you why you want to roll back, you can select any answer to proceed to the next step where it will ask to check for updates.
Decline the check for updates option and Windows 10 will begin the roll back.
The roll back should be smooth but it will take time. Give it up to thirty minutes or an hour even if it gets stuck. If the roll back is progressing but slowly so that it takes more than hour, let it run. As long as it isn’t stuck, you have no cause to worry.
If after the roll back some components don’t work correctly e.g., the display looks off, or WiFi won’t connect, you probably need to update your drivers. Additionally, you should also check for updates and install only those that are security patches.
