Guide: How To Uninstall Microsoft’s Latest Windows 10 Update

In a recent development, Microsoft pushed a Windows 10 update which is not relevant to most of the Windows users. The move to roll the update to everyone was purely unintentional. Primarily, the update – which is known as KB4532441 – was meant for users who are using Windows Autopilot. Essentially, it is a tool for IT departments through which they establish and manage new computers. Interestingly, Microsoft even sent reminders to non-Autopilot users to install the update even though it was not necessary.

Luckily, the nature is of the update is that of mild. However, it may take up unnecessary space which could irritate the user in using the system. Some of the latest Microsoft’s updates contain some unpredictable and critical features. As a result, Microsoft has also halted the release of larger Windows updates which have some compatibility issues.
