For Enterprise users Microsoft is still “investigating and working” on Remote Desktop issues. While we first reported this back in October shortly after the Windows 11 22H2 release, apparently this has been ongoing since late September. Home users are not experiencing these issues due to using different connection protocols from Enterprise users (due to corporate Firewalls)

As BleepingComputer previously reported, Microsoft has been investigating this issue since late September following a stream of reports from administrators and home users saying that installing Windows 11 22H2 will cause Remote Desktop clients not to connect, randomly disconnect, or freeze unexpectedly.

After installing the Windows 11 2022 Update, customers have also reported experiencing frequent remote desktop disconnectsRemote Desktop Services failuresremote virtual desktop not working, and Remote Desktop published apps issues.

Microsoft also announced Windows 10 22H2 now in broad deployment, available to everyone. If you are still using Windows 10 20H2 (October 2020 release) support ended in May of this year and support for 21H1 (May 2021) ends with this coning December’s Patch Tuesday.
