How to Switch to the Beta Channel?
If you are in the Dev Channel but want to use a stable Windows 11 build, you’d better switch to the Beta Channel. This is your last chance to switch to the Beta Channel before upgrading to this build since the builds in the Dev Channel will be higher than the ones in the Beta Channel.
If you have installed this flight, you still have 10 days or until the release of the next new build to roll back to the previous version and then switch to the Beta Channel. If you haven’t installed this build, you can directly switch to the Beta Channel.
However, if you don’t roll back within 10 days or you install another new build, you will be unable to directly switch to the Beta Channel. You need to clean install Windows 11, then participate in the Beta Channel.
In this post, we will show you how to switch from Insider to a stable build of Windows 11 under different situations without data loss.
