Here is a step-by-step guide to install Windows 10 Version 21H2 to get the November 2021 Update of the official operating system before everyone else. The public release of the Windows 10 November 2021 Update is not out yet. That said, Microsoft is done giving finishing touches to the full and final version of Windows 10, with rollout expected to begin soon. The upcoming rollout of Windows 11 predecessor OS will primarily address performance issues coupled with improvements to security in addition to bug fixes to enhance user experience.
Like previous updates, version 21H2 comes with system files and core operating system architecture also found in versions 2004, 20H2, and 21H1. Consequently, the November 2021 update installation should breeze through on devices running Windows 10 versions 2004, 20H2, and the most recent 21H1.
As officially confirmed last week, Windows 10 version 21H2 feature update is almost bug-free and currently under review in the Insider Program to ensure its readiness before open release. Once out, the Azure cloud service provider will continue to push cumulative updates in the follow-up to remove any remaining and unforeseen bugs.
How To Install Windows 10 V21H2 November 2021 Update Before Public Release:
To free download Windows 10 21H1 update, the first step is to register with the Windows Insider Program. Also, you don’t have to worry about errors since the November 2021 version final build has already entered testing via preview channels which means it is largely free of bugs. However, we suggest non-professionals should wait for the official public launch to err on the side of caution.
As mentioned above, you need to have an active Windows Insider Program account to get Windows 10 November 2021 Update before others. Here are the steps:
Step 1 – Hit the Start menu icon.
Step 2 – Open the Settings app.
Step 3 – Go to the Update & Security menu.
Step 4 – Click the Windows Insider Program option and then the “Get started” button. You can use your Microsoft or Azure Active Directory account email credentials to receive preview builds.
Step 5 – Next, select Release Preview Channel which will link your device to the most stable channel on the Insider Program.
Step 6 – Now hit the “Confirm” button and then click the “Restart Now” button to begin the setup process.
Step 7 – Once your computer is ready, head over to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Insider Program to make sure you’re on the chosen “Release Preview Channel.”
Step 8 – To get the regular updates, follow these steps:
- In Settings window, navigate to Update & Security > Windows Update.
- Now, click on the Check for updates button.
- With that done, choose the Stay on Windows 10 for now option, if your device meets the Windows 11 install requirements.
- After that, click the Download and install button under the “Feature update to Windows 10, version 21H2” section.
- To let the changes take effect, click on the Restart Now button.
Now that you have successfully installed Windows 10 21H2 feature update, simply choose to opt-out of the Insider program to stop getting further updates.
Here are the steps to deregister:
- Go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Insider Program.
- Turn on the toggle switch under the Stop getting preview builds option.
- That’s it.
You can now start using the upcoming Windows 10 version 21H2 with November 2021 update features ahead of its rollout to the public!
