How to Switch from Insider to Stable Builds of Windows 11

If you are participating in the Windows Insider Program for Windows 11, and want to switch from Beta or Release Preview channels to a stable build in your next upgrade, how?

Basically, if you plan to use the stable version of Windows 11 when the operating system officially launches on October 5, while you are using the Beta or Release Preview channels (not applicable to the Dev), the conversion is generally quite simple. Just flip a switch in the Windows Settings app, and your Windows Insider Program subscription will be canceled at the next major stable release. The same will apply after Microsoft fully releases Windows 11, but you may need to wait until a major update to switch automatically. Otherwise, you'll still be on Windows 11's Beta or Preview Release channels.

1. To get started, first open Windows Settings by pressing Windows + i key combination. Or you can open the Start menu, search for the keyword Settings and click the Settings icon

2. In the Settings interface, click Windows Update in the list on the right, then select Windows Insider Program.

3. In the Windows Insider Program settings screen, click on the Stop getting preview builds section. Next, switch the switch next to the Unenroll this device when the next version of Windows releases option to the On state.

Then close Settings and the next time Microsoft releases a major, stable update for Windows 11, your PC will automatically leave the Insider program and switch to the regular stable version.

Alternatively, you can also change your Windows Insider settings on this same screen, if you want to switch between Dev, Beta, and Release Preview channels. Good luck!
