News hardware The future update of Windows 11 will change the use of your PC, we tell you everything
The 22H2 update of Windows 11 promises to be major, and it should arrive in time for the start of the school year on compatible PCs. What can we expect? According to the first observations, it should bring a lot of new features.
Microsoft has greatly evolved the way it updates its most recent operating systems. Many people remember the famous Service Packs that were found in particular within Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 8. These seasonal updates disappeared over the lifecycle of Windows 10 and Microsoft now rolls out updates much more regularlysometimes several times a month when circumstances require.
Microsoft is preparing the biggest Windows 11 update yet
However, even if the Service Packs no longer exist, that does not prevent Microsoft from regularly announcing large updates. Scheduled for around September 20, the 22H2 update of Windows 11 promises to be major. For the moment, Microsoft has not officially communicated on its content, but a lot of information has leaked in the press.
This 22H2 update should bring a large batch of new features to Windows 11. However, it is interesting to note that some are not really new: they had simply disappeared within the new version of Microsoft’s OS. This is particularly the case of drag and drop to taskbara feature unfairly removed from Windows 11 when it was really handy within Windows 10. Good news, she should be back in September!
Windows 11 22H2 update, what’s new for your PC?
Among the real novelties that the 22H2 update of Windows 11 should bring, we find:
- The arrival of folders in the Start menu,
- New customizations for the Start menu,
- New Accessibility options,
- Optimized OneDrive integration in File Explorer,
- The ability to share windows in Microsoft Teams,
- A modernized interface,
- A new volume indicator,
- A revisited task manager,
- Optimizations for touch,
- Multitasking optimizations via Snap Layouts
It’s a safe bet that the Redmond firm still has other features planned, which it will be possible to discover when it has decided to speak about it officially. The website The Verge adds that Microsoft is currently working on the integration of tabs within the file explorer, but this feature is not expected to arrive in September. Another update, scheduled for later in the year, will allow you to take advantage of this, in addition to other new features.

On the sidelines of the deployment of this important Windows 11 update, Microsoft is planning to hold an event related to the 10th anniversary of its Surface product line. New references could be formalized for the occasion and they would, unsurprisingly, be delivered with the latest version of Windows 11. To find out more, we will have to wait for Microsoft to come out of its summer silence.
