A few weeks ago, Microsoft began redesigning some of the dialog boxes in the Settings app in Windows 11. These are major changes that will make the system design more modern, consistent, and beautiful.
Windows 11 Insider Build 25247, which became available on the Dev channel yesterday, includes an updated “Go back to an earlier build” dialog box, made in the style of Fluent Design. Currently, the change is disabled by default, but you can enable it manually using the ViVeTool utility.
- Download the ViVeTool utility by this link. This is a new version of ViveTool 0.3.2, details of which we have covered in our material.
- Unpack the downloaded archive to any place on your computer (for example, you can create a ViVeTool folder in the root of the C: drive and place the files there).
- Open a command prompt as an administrator (for example, by typing CMD in the search and selecting the appropriate item).
- In the command line, navigate to the folder with ViVeTool using the command cd /d , then press Enter. For example:
cd /d "C:\ViVeTool"
- Enter command
vivetool /enable /id:41670003 /store:bothand press Enter.
- Make sure that the command line shows the message “Successfully set feature configuration”
- Restart your computer to apply the changes.
- Open “Settings” -> “Windows Update” -> “Advanced options” -> “Previous version of Windows” and click on the “Back” button.
If you want to disable the feature, then use the command:
vivetool /disable /id:41670003 /store:both
