    Windows keeps reverting back to previous version.

    Hi Josh,

    The issue with Windows 10 update reverting back to previous version could be due to corruption in Windows Update component files.

    We would like to ask some information to better assist you with your concern:

    • Which previous build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    • Did you get any error messages or error codes?

    We suggest that you try to run
    Windows update troubleshooter
    and check if it works.

    Keep us posted.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Can't switch out from Windows 10 S mode

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We understand your concern as you are unable to switch from Windows 10 S to Windows 10 home/Pro Version. In order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers to the questions below:

    • What is the error message you are getting?
    • Are you using a school/university account to sign in to the Microsoft store
    • Are you connected to a domain/organization network?

    Windows 10 in S mode is designed for security and performance, exclusively running apps from the Microsoft Store. If you want to install an app that isn't available in the Microsoft Store, you'll need to switch out of S mode. Switching
    out of S mode is one-way. If you make the switch, you won't be able to go back to Windows 10 in S mode. There's no charge to switch out of S mode. Please refer the below article:

    Switching out of S mode in Windows 10

    Meanwhile you can perform these steps and check.

    Step 1: Try resetting the Microsoft Store and see if that helps.

    1. Press Windows key + R. This will open Run. Alternatively, you can go to Start and search for ‘Run
    2. In Run dialog box, type ‘wsreset’ and hit enter.

    Note:
    A blank Command Prompt window will open, and after about ten seconds the window will close and Microsoft Store will open automatically.

    Step 2: Run the Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter: Select the
    Start button, and then select Settings>Update & Security
    > Troubleshoot, and then from the list select Windows Store apps > Run the troubleshooter.

    Step 3: Sign out, and sign in again to the Microsoft Store and check if you are able to Switch out of S mode.

    1. Open Microsoft Store, click on the profile icon and select
      Sign out.
    2. Now, click on the profile icon again and select
      sign in
      .
    3. Follow the on-screen instructions and sign in with the account.
