Leaving Windows 11 Beta


I have a Surface Pro X and Windows 11 has ran well on it. I went ahead and selected the option to leave the insider after the most recent, public and stable build. I rebooted and I am already out of the Insider and showing that I am on 22000.176.

So, officially, I am on “Windows 11” now, correct? Just wanted to make sure I am not stuck on a pre-release…getting out of the insider once the “official Windows 11” came out was my goal but didn’t expect it to be today.

    Pretty sure you are as this might not be the official start of the supported builds, you will receive the CU's going forward.

    Nobody will know for sure until next month when Windows 11 ships.

    Windows 11 has not been released to the public, so you are still on a pre-release version of the OS.

    It's a bit of splitting hairs because build 22000 is the "final" Windows 11 version and any updates are just CU's.

    But it is likely that there will be a specific CU build that will be the "official" Windows 11 launch build. .176 likely isn't the one.

    You may want to re-enroll with the Insider program on the Beta channel, but turn on the switch for "Unenroll this device when the next version of Windows released" available if you expand the "Stop Getting Preview Builds" box in Windows Insider Program settings. Unenrolling now may get you stuck in a state where you don't get the (presumable) weekly updates between now and the official release in October.

    I had to remove it from my ASUS laptop, it ran so well on the 7th gen chip.
