On this most recent Patch Tuesday, Microsoft announced the release of a new Windows 11 Update, formally known as Windows 11 22H2. In addition to their plans to release Microsoft 10 22H2 in a month’s time, several aspects and features of the new Windows 11 update have been announced to the public with mixed reactions. Here’s what you should expect from Windows 11 22H2, and how it may affect your server.

While Microsoft reiterates that it will continue to release major updates for Windows 11 in the second half of each new coming year, the company also plans to release regular updates with new features more often. For those of us who are eager to participate in Windows 11 22H2, the update may be available to you now, so long as you’re already using Windows 11 version and your system does not have any safeguard holds.

To get started with the latest version of Windows 11, open your Windows Update Settings (Settings >> Windows Update) and select Check for Updates. You may have access to this version already.

Notable New Features in Windows 11 22H2
The most relevant and talked-about features that will be released with Windows 11 22H2 are as follows:

  • New security features
  • Productivity-focused features and programming
  • Further management capability for business layout
  • Over 20,000 Android apps and games
  • An Amazon Appstore preview
  • Better voice control capabilities
  • New Snap layouts

Overall
Overall, Windows 11 is not something to necessarily write home about. It’s a small (and mostly surface) update with a few new tricks, but it’s leaving a lot of Windows users hungry for more. We expect that through several more updates over the next months (or even years), this new update may become increasingly more valuable to Windows users, but for now, it’s leaving a lot to be desired.
