In the midst of Windows 11 gaining its first major update, Microsoft also confirmed that a 22H2 update for Windows 10 is scheduled to arrive in October.
However, if you’re looking for massive features to further prevent upgrading to Windows 11, you’re out of luck. Microsoft has confirmed that it has stopped working on new features for the previous version of Windows, with full focus on Windows 11.
For this 2022 update, expect a number of bug fixes and minor refinements that users have submitted to the company over the past few months, but Microsoft is likely to confirm exactly what the update will entail closer to its release next month.
While it is compatible with Windows 10 until 2025, confirmed in a blog post (opens in new tab)is Microsoft’s signal that it may be time for you to upgrade your PC to Windows 11.
Don’t wait until 2025 to update
It’s true that Windows 11 has had its fair share of criticism, most notably the taskbar, which brings one of the most significant changes to the Start menu in years. However, there are apps that let you customize it to your liking, like Start11, or you can change it back to the Windows 10 taskbar you know and love, or an even earlier version if you wish.
However, the improvements go further in the recent Windows 11 2022 update, with an improved Snap layout to better organize your windows, and in another upcoming update, File Explorer tabs are finally coming, which will keep your desktop a lot less cluttered when you’re dragging and dropping files into different folders, for example.
There are also major accessibility improvements, with live captions now system-wide, so it’s not just limited to a few apps as it once was in Windows 10. Settings > Accessibility > Live Subtitlesyou will be able to activate these subtitles which will be at the top of the screen.
All of this adds up to more justified reasons why they are not you are upgrading to Windows 11 now. With the update approaching a year since its first release, there’s no better time to take advantage of what it offers and what it may offer in future updates.
