The 22H2 update for Windows 10 is now being rolled out to consumers and you should start seeing a notification to download and install appearing in Windows Updates (if not already):
What’s New In 22H2
The short answer is… not a lot. There are only a few new settings that IT personnel in an enterprise environment can take advantage of, but nothing of any note for the home consumer. This is not unexpected as Microsoft is now clearly concentrating on bringing Windows 11 up to scratch with new/improved features. However, there is one important element – installing 22H2 extends Windows 10’s support for a further 11 months.
Support for Windows 10 21H2 ends on 13th June 2023 while support for 22H2 will continue through to 14th May 2024:
Support for Windows 10 ends completely on 14th October 2025 so, obviously, Microsoft is planning further similar minor updates to extend support for Windows 10 through to that date.
Should You Install 22H2?
If you want to continue running a supported Windows 10 past June 2023, it’s a no-brainer… definitely yes. It took around 30 seconds to download plus around one minute to install on my main machine, and around four minutes to install on my less powerful second machine. So, it is a small (very minor) update.
