Last Tuesday (may 10), Microsoft has distributed an update to the Autopilot in Windows 10. It was a part of Patch Tuesday: this is an update, update rollup, fixes for security and bugs, and that Microsoft typically release on the second Tuesday of each month.
In a support article, Microsoft says that the update is KB4532441 of the Autopilot that was available in Windows Update, but it was removed “because it was delivered incorrectly”.
She also noted that “the upgrading of the Windows Autopilot should not be offered to Windows 10 In the Home, but she says, “if you have received this update and didn’t use the Autopilot, the installation will not affect you.”
The Autopilot is designed for corporate IT departments is that it allows you to automate the setup of new PCs, installing all the necessary drivers, and registering the device on the corporate network. It is even possible to alter the release of Windows 10, which came with the computer (when you upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise) for example.

If you have Windows 10 installed on the Autopilot by mistake, then there is no problem in having it on your PC. However, if you want to remove it, you need the following steps:
- go to Settings > Update and Security – > Windows Update – > View update history;
- then click on the Uninstall updates;
- in the window that appears, select Update for Microsoft Windows (KB4532441) , and then click on Uninstall at the top.
