Microsoft Windows 11 this year’s biggest update 22H2 released: [Official ISO Download]
Earlier today, Microsoft officially released the most important update to Windows 11 this year, and the current 22H2 version is also available for upgrade (the updated version number is 22621.521).
In addition to the Windows 11 2022 update released today, Microsoft has also confirmed that its current operating system will continue to receive major updates every year. Releases will be concentrated in the second half of each year, with each update providing 24 months of support for both Home and Professional editions.
The Windows 11 2022 update is available today for eligible devices that trigger a manual check for updates, although users can also choose to go to the official website to complete the upgrade by downloading the mirror, using the installation assistant and installation media maker.
Microsoft emphasizes that the goal of Windows 11 is to provide a more streamlined experience that makes users more productive. As such, the 2022 update packs a ton of new features in this area, including better touchscreen navigation for "snapshot layouts," the ability to select multiple browser tabs in Edge, and focus sessions and Do Not Disturb.
Windows 11 2022 Update offers faster search, a better Start menu experience, a variety of gadgets, and accessibility enhancements.
The Windows 11 2022 update is also exclusively for creators and gamers, thanks to the bundled Clipchamp, a new tool called Windows Studio Effects, and a slew of gaming improvements.
Additionally, Microsoft has finally delivered on its promise to support Android apps on Windows 11. The Amazon Appstore experience, powered by Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA), is now expanding to 31 additional countries and will offer a catalog of 20,000 Android apps and games.
On the security front, Windows 11 2022 Update supports presence sensors and Smart App Control for Windows Hello for Business, both on new Windows 11 devices and those with a clean install of Windows 11 2022 Update.
