How to Uninstall Windows 10 Updates

Windows Update is a Microsoft service that provides updates to the Microsoft Windows operating system and its supporting components.

Windows Update services provide different types of updates. Security updates aim to prevent vulnerabilities to malicious programs and block exploits. While other updates to fix errors that are not related to security or to improve functionality.

Security improvements are routinely provided on the second Tuesday of each month (Patch Tuesday), but updates can be issued in the event of a severe security threat. Windows Update can be configured to automatically install important updates when the computer is connected to the internet without the user needing to run the installation manually or even realize that an update is needed.

Although the purpose of Windows update is to fix weaknesses or shortcomings of Windows, sometimes updates even create new problems.

One example of security update KB5005565 that caused printer sharing to not work. To overcome things like this all we can do is delete the update and wait for the next fix for the problem.
