    Update: New Windows 10 Insider Preview Fast Skip Build 18262 (19H1) Oct. 17 Insider - Windows 10 Forums

    Troubleshooting improvements

    Don’t feel like troubleshooting? We’ve got you covered. In previous releases, if you noticed your PC was having a problem, you would have to find the right troubleshooter and then manually walk through all the different steps to resolve it. We hear your feedback that the time that takes to do can be frustrating – why not just automatically fix issues that you know how to fix and can detect? We agree! If an issue occurs we want to get you back up and running as quickly as possible, so with Build 18262 you’ll find a new recommended troubleshooting setting under Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot in Build 18262. This feature uses diagnostic data you send to deliver a tailored set of fixes matching problems we detect on your device and will automatically apply them to your PC.

    We’re still hard at work on this feature so it’s greyed out right now in Settings, but stay tuned for updates in future builds!

    Does Build 18262 have a selection to "DISABLE" the troubleshoot mode?

    My build 17134.345 doesn't have that option as I dread windows 10 troubleshoot for its uselessness to detect and fix the simplest trouble.

    Hello @Rickerz,

    This setting is only available starting with build 17704.

    You should have it whenever the Windows 10 October 2018 Update is re-released to the public hopefully soon.
