As mentioned earlier Microsoft Corporation 245,12 -5,08 -2,03% had teased about new Windows 11 features coming this month. Today, Microsoft pushed out KB5019509 (Cumulative Update for Windows 11 22H2 for X64-based Systems). Note: if your system is being blocked from getting the Windows 11 22H2 update, this update and the new features will not be offered.
If this all feels a bit overwhelming, well, you’re right. Microsoft’s plan for Windows 11 is to return to a single major feature release per year, but to add additional features pretty much whenever it feels like it. Consider this to be a “makeup” release, including all of the features that should have been included in the Windows 11 2022 Update (22H2), but missed the deadline for whatever reason.
Some of the new features in this update include:
- The tabbed File Explorer interface
- An updated Photos application (due at the end of October)
- “Suggested Actions” in the Windows Shell
- An overflow menu for the Taskbar
- An improved Nearby Share / Windows Share experience
