    To extend the time to roll back to a prior version of Windows 10 or 11 follow the guidance below:

    You CAN extend this to 60 day roll back window by performing the following:

    • In the search box, type in cmd.
    • In the resulting “best match” screen, right mouse click on the application and click on run as administrator
    • From that administrative command prompt, type the following command, choosing any number between 1 and 60 after the Value parameter:
    • DISM /Online /Set-OSUninstallWindow /Value:60

    Note if you get the message “Error: 1168 Element not found. The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log” you can use the registry key method to extend the rollback period.

    The registry key method can be downloaded from this link:

    Registry key download

    The downloaded file will enter the following key into your registry which will extend the rollback period to 60 days.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup]

    “UninstallWindow”=dword:0000003c

      Works only if users are within 10 days of reverting to previous version.

      I am currently on Windows 10 Home 21H2. Yesterday I installed Susan’s registry key to receive to stay at Windows 10 22H2. So far it has not happened even though the computer checked for updates when I got on early this morning and I checked midday. I don’t have anything set to block it, I just use pause to block updates until this site gives the OK. I am sure it will arrive eventually.

      update 12/7/2022 5:30pm Just used link from another post to download 22H2.

      I have Windows 10 22H2 now.

      What I am concerned about is keeping Windows 11 at bay. When exactly can I extend the roll back period? Could I download the registry key now for future use if needed? Also how does  [“UninstallWindow”=dword:0000003c] extend it for 60 days? I don’t see the 60, do I add that?

      Thanks.

      0000003c is the hexadecimal value equal to 60.

        alejr,

        Thank you. Can you help with the rest of the question?

        Thanks.

        Never mind. I just downloaded the registry key, I guess you can do it anytime, and next to 0000003c is (60) just like you said. 😊

        Thanks again.

          I guess you can do it anytime

          Yep!

          Once it’s in the registry, it’s always in there unless someone or some program deliberately removes it.

          Of course, since Microsoft controls Windows, they can always ignore/remove it anytime they want!

      When exactly can I extend the roll back period?

      You can extend the rollback period within 10 days of installing/upgrading to new Windows release version (enablement package update to new version doesn’t count).

      Use InControl app to lock your system to Windows 10 22H2.

      By periodically creating full image copies you are not limited by Microsoft roll-back days. You can create tens of images on an external 4TB HDD and restore any of them.
