While everyone is interested in Windows 11, Microsoft continues to update the Windows 10. must receive 22H2 . version In the second half, but the company has not talked about it yet. It is known that this update will come: It is “hidden” in 21H2but can be detected by a series of commands.
Instructions are posted on the site Newwen and working on the machine of the person who downloaded the optional package KB5014666.
Commands are typed at a command prompt and using the Image Deployment and Management (DISM) tool.
Next, the About Windows screen shows that version 22H2 has been activated.
Change only the information in the system itself, without bringing in new resources. However, this confirms: the update is already there and is coming soon.
It is likely that 22H2 will not have major changes: it will be a common update with a change in the code that appears in the system information.
This is unheard of: Windows 10 1909 was also installed with an ‘Activation Pack’ that brought some new features, all of which were ‘dormant’ in Windows 10 1903.
Windows 10 will receive updates until 2025
Even with a little bit of news, it’s a good idea to update Windows 10 to version 22H2. From time to time, Microsoft stops providing updates for one of the older versions of the system.
21H2, for example, will arrive by mid-2023 (for home or Pro) or 2024 (for enterprise).
On the other hand, it was retired on 20H2 in May 2022 – the company forced the update not to leave users unsupported.
The latest system release, 21H2 brought some notable updates for the average user, but it did come with Linux subsystem changes and compatibility with Wi-Fi networks that use WPA3 encryption. 22H2 will probably only bring news of this kind.
The company promises to release a major upgrade every year until 2025. So if you don’t like Windows 11 or your hardware doesn’t support it, you still have plenty of time to enjoy Windows 10.
