Windows 11 22H2: the major update has a release date and its first “moments”

The rollout of the update is scheduled for September 20, 2022 by Microsoft. This will be accompanied by several announcements.

It’s the season for big updates! After the launch of Android 13 on August 16, 2022, it’s Windows 11 22H2’s turn to find its launch date. And that’s pending the launch of macOS Ventura and iOS 16 also planned for the coming weeks.

In the case of Windows 11, the news is not yet official, but it is just like. Journalists Zac Bowden for Windows Central and Tom Warren for The Verge, two specialists on the subject, were both able to confirm the date of September 20 from their internal sources at the Redmond firm. According to Zac Bowden, the date could still change, but with some 30 days to go, that seems less and less likely to us.

A launch and “moments”

It is therefore on September 20 that Windows 11 users should be able to download and install the update to Windows 11 22H2. As a reminder, this update includes a multitude of important changes, of which here is a short summary:

  • Tabs in File Explorer
  • Better OneDrive integration
  • Folders in the Start menu
  • More customizable Start menu
  • The return of drag and drop to the taskbar
  • Window sharing with Microsoft Teams
  • New volume indicator
  • Improvements for touch screens
  • Interface modernization
  • New task manager
  • Better multitasking with Windows Snap

The deployment should be done by a simple update with Windows Update.

This isn’t the only update planned for Windows 11 this year. Microsoft would also like to deploy its first “moment” for Windows 11. Behind this name hides a new update system that would arrive several times a year while waiting for Windows 12.

This first moment should integrate the new features that will not be offered from September 20. This should especially be the case for tabs in File Explorer.

And a big Surface event

Microsoft usually unveils a new line of Surface products in October. This was the case for Windows devices in 2021, and the big conference where the brand unveiled the Surface Neo and Surface Duo.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Surface PC line, as the Surface RT and Surface Pro were unveiled in 2012 with Windows 8. Many products in the Surface line are in dire need of a refresh. We think of the Surface Studio in particular. On our side, we are also betting on a Surface PC oriented towards video games and the PC Game Pass.
