We’ve entered the end of 2022, which means now is the time for a new major Windows 11 update. The long-awaited Windows 11 2022 Update (also known as 22H2) has finally arrived and is coming to your PC soon.
Microsoft has released its 22H2 update for all users after a long period of Insider testing. The update comes with various improvements and changes, both in terms of appearance and functionality. For one thing, Task Manager, which has looked identical since Windows 8 launched in 2012, is finally getting a redesign. You get a dark mode and overall aesthetic that fits much better with the rest of the Windows 11 UI, as well as a new Efficiency Mode option.
Other additions to the 2022 update include the return of taskbar drag and drop, improvements to Snap, improvements to the Start menu, a new print queue layout, a Bluetooth panel on the taskbar , the Clipchamp video editor, and much, much more. One thing that won’t make it to this initial release, though, is the ability to use tabs in File Explorer, which is the one feature that could actually drastically improve your life once it’s available. Microsoft says users will have to wait until October to get those tabs.
