Flighting is the process of running Windows Insider Preview Builds on your device. When you run these early versions of Windows and give Microsoft feedback, you can help Microsoft shape the future of Windows. Once you've registered for the Windows Insider Program, you can run Insider Preview builds on as many devices as you want, each in the channel of your choice.

Windows Insiders help shape the future of Windows, and your participation is important to Microsoft. But if you're sure you'd like to stop getting emails and Windows Insider Preview Builds from us, you can unregister and leave the program. If you'd just like to stop getting Insider Preview builds, you can also unenroll your device, but stay registered to keep getting email updates from Microsoft.

If you're in the Beta Channel or the Release Preview Channel, you can flip the switch to stop stop getting preview builds on your device when the next major release of Windows launches to the public.

If you're in the Dev Channel or you'd like to stop getting preview builds immediately, you would need to do a clean install of Windows 11.

This tutorial will show you how to stop getting Insider preview builds of Windows 11 on your Windows 11 PC.


You must be signed in as an administrator to stop getting Insider preview builds.




Here's How:

1 Open Settings (Win+I).

2 Click/tap on Windows Update on the left side, and click/tap on Windows Insider Program on the right side. (see screenshot below)

3 Click/tap on Stop getting preview builds to expand it open. (see screenshot below step 4)

4 Turn On Unenroll this device when the next version of Windows releases. (see screenshot below)

5 You can now close Settings if you like.


That's it,
Shawn Brink

Hello,

I'm afraid you'll have to clean install to switch from Dev channel to RTM. :(
