We’ve reached the end of 2022, which means it’s time for a major new update for Windows 11. The long-awaited Windows 11 2022 Update (aka 22H2) is finally out and coming to your PC soon.
Microsoft has released the 22H2 update to all users after a long period of insider testing. The update includes several improvements and changes, both in terms of appearance and functionality. First, the task manager, which has looked the same since the launch of Windows 8 in 2012, is finally getting a new design. It gets a dark mode and an overall aesthetic that blends in much better with the rest of the Windows 11 user interface, as well as a new efficiency mode option.
Other additions to the 2022 update include the return of drag and drop to the taskbar, improvements to Snap, improvements to the Start menu, a new print queue design, Bluetooth bar on the taskbar, Clipchamp video editor, and much, much more. One thing that won’t make it into this initial release, however, is the ability to use tabs in File Explorer, which is the only feature that could make your life much better once it’s released. Microsoft says users will need to wait until October to get these tabs.
