Default How to un-install an update

There's a particular update that is recking havoc with my Flight Simulator. It has been proven in forums that the update is the problem. The Windows 10 version 1709 ( JC017224Q0 ) is the culprit. I know where to go to uninstall the newest updates but this one is not listed. It is listed as installed. How do I go back farther to find it?

This is actually a feature/major update, Windows 10 Fall Creators Update so the only way you can is restoring or downloading the previous major update which is the Creators Update. Download it directly from Microsoft here https://software-download.microsoft....ae329f25bfd5ae

You should be able to roll back to the previous build via Settings > Update and Security > Recovery > Go Back to the previous version of Windows 10

this option is usually visible for 10 days after a new build is loaded.

Well now, I not only have the ' Creators ' Update, there's about six more. I can't uninstall them. I can't do a recovery, and I can't go back far enough to do a restore. This ' Creators Update has clearly messed up my simulator, and after viewing some gaming forums, I'm not alone. I really don't know what to do.

Sounds like the only thing left is to reinstall windows. iirc with windows 10 it's pretty easy to get it reactivated as long as you use the same hardware...

EDIT: though i'm not sure where you'd get an older build of windows 10. At least not legally....
