Last step before the rollout kicks off, Microsoft is offering Windows 11 22H2 to Insider members in the Release Preview channel.
Microsoft has been preparing for several months, the first big major update for Windows 11 known under the code name Sun Valley 2. We have seen it evolve from build to build through the Insider program in the Dev channel, before joining the Beta channel and now the Release Preview channel. This new step shows that Microsoft is rather confident in the quality of its software and now wishes to have it tested by volunteer companies, before the major deployment.
Officially, Windows 11 22H2, the number of this new version, is well planned for the second half of the year, probably for the anniversary of the release of Windows 11. The system should therefore still be entitled to some updates security and patch updates to fine-tune this update as much as possible before the big rollout.
Insider program members in the Release Preview channel can now download and install this major update, without too much risk of problems with their machines (although zero risk does not exist). Microsoft also offers an ISO version of this version to download from its site.
What’s new in Windows 11 22H2
The Windows 11 22H2 update incorporates several welcome changes for Microsoft’s young system. First of all, the firm continues its work of redesigning the interface with a new redesigned task manager. This version also fixes one of Windows 11’s problems with the arrival of drag and drop between applications through the taskbar.
The Start menu now hosts folders and the file explorer is evolving with better OneDrive integration. The user experience on touch screens has also been improved. It is finally with this new version that Microsoft should offer Android applications on Windows 11 in France at the end of the year.
