    I want to follow Susan’s advice and update from 20H2 to 21H1 but need instructions. Windows Update wants to update me to 21H2 and I don’t see another option to select the previous version.

    I went to the Windows ISO page linked, but it was clear as mud. Said I need a license (of course I have a Win 10 Home license) and then need to download a tool. Clarify please?

      AKB2000003 has Susan’s the scripts necessary to upgrade Win10 Home from 20H2 to 21H1.

      AKB2000016 Guide for Windows Update Settings for Win10 has information on WU settings. Section 1 is General and Section 2 is for Home Edition. Read through this so you know what’s available.

      Thanks for that info, samak. Just to clarify, the text says to “stay on” a version, but I want to update to a higher version (and then stay there). Will the registry edit do this for me?

        When you put in that 21H1 registry key and then let windows update do it’s thing, it will ONLY offer 21H1, not 21H2.

        Please read Susan’s reply (post number 2402752), immediately above this one. She answers your question perfectly.  🙂
