Windows 10 updates bring new features, security patches and, sadly, headaches. If you’ve updated only to find yourself staring at the Blue Screen of Death or a printer that won’t work, you know exactly what we mean.

Sometimes you can roll back Windows to a more stable version. Worst case, though, you have to go the nuclear route and restore to a clean back-up. Tap or click here for step-by-step directions on saving down a clean version of Windows.

Before you update in the first place, you need to make sure you’ve completed one critical step: Backing up your files. There’s always a chance something can go wrong, and you’d be devasted to find all your photos, videos, spreadsheets, documents and other files gone.

If you’re looking for a secure, easy way to do it, consider IDrive, a sponsor of Kim’s national radio show.
