Does Creators Update reset your settings do default?

Specs: Windows 10
Does the Creators Update on a Windows 10 home reset the settings on your system to default? For instance Cortana, Inking & Typing, Data Usage, ect. I can’t get a clear answer on this and from my experience Pro doesn’t change the settings but I could be wrong and wonder about Home.

As far as I know, no Windows upgrade changes settings or unless you elect to do a clean install rather than an upgrade. I personally upgraded many from Windows 8 to 10 and a Windows 7 from home to Pro and only settings that differed between versions may have needed tweaking though I cannot think of any specifically.
I do not know any who made that specific change but I doubt that it would as there would be no benefit to it for them (MS) or you.

So are you saying that a Windows 7 Home premium OA would be upgraded automatically to Windows 10 Pro and not Home based on your experiences?
Okay thanks. I meant that I have seen Creators Updates done ever so often, more like a matter of months on an already installed Windows 10 in Windows Updates and I’m wondering if it changes your customized settings to default. I have seen some people claim this happening and it’s just described as “optimizes the operating system with enhancements”. Has anyone ever experienced that? Also, I see feature updates are not avoidable in order to get security updates. Is there any way to change something in regedit to put a stop to apps being installed like Candy Crush and Disney, Spotify, ect when these feature updates are done? They claim online that the only way is to stop app updates completely which I wont do obviously for security reasons. Any other area of the system? I have searched and appreciate your help

NO

Windows update does not update programs that are not Microsoft programs. The update settings on those programs are within the settings for that program and you will have to look for them.

Finally, Windows 10 does things that prior systems have never done before. MS have more control over it than ever before but they do not do things that will leave you exposed to additional risks.

Others may have other opinions on these matters so stick around for a while and see.

Just for info MS features updates can remove programs that were working before - no often but it does happen.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
