Slowly but surely, Microsoft is preparing for the distribution of Windows 10 22H2 update. Currently, the Redmond firm is making available a first functional update which, in all likelihood, will unlock future features of the update expected for the fall.
The currently available patch KB5015684 confirms the existence of Windows 10 22H2 in a completely official way and without hidden detours through the command prompt. After installation, version 22H2 and updated build 19045.xxxx show up in the Windows specs, among other things.
New functions, however, have to be dispensed with so far, because it is apparently only the “Enablement Package”, which is responsible for activating future features.
Those who want to get the feature update early can download it through the Windows Insider program or manually. However, except for a changed entry in Windows 10 settings, there are no noticeable benefits yet. Preparations indicate, however, that any planned Windows 10 22H2 functions can be activated later this year at the push of a button and without lengthy patch phases.
Microsoft plans to integrate the new features in future cumulative updates. However, there are no official patch notes for Windows 10 version 22H2 yet. Instead of new features, it is possible that the Redmond company will only focus on minor bug fixes and operating system security improvements.
The Windows 11 22H2 update therefore remains in the spotlight and can already be tested with almost all new functions in the Release Preview channel.
