It is the second Tuesday of the month and Microsoft has released new updates for its products. Whether you are on the Windows 11 initial release 21H2 or the recently released 22H2 build. Both builds received the new security patch, the latter build (aka 22H2) is the more exciting update rolling with a stack of new features.

Microsoft is pushing the new update to Windows 11 (21H2) with KB5019961 (OS Build 22000.1219), whereas the upgrade is rolling with KB5019980 (OS Build 22621.819) for users running on the 22H2 version. As always, these are the small upgrades weighing around 349.7 MB (on ARM64-based PCs) and 252MB (on x64-based PCs). You can head over to this page to download the new builds.

The first feature drop aka Moment 1 update for Windows 11 22H2 comes with a bunch of new features. Microsoft shares a video detailing new features including Search enhancements for Taskbar, an updated Microsoft account page for the Settings app, right-click access to Task Manager, updated File Explorer with Tabs support, browsing OneDrive folders reliably using File Explorer, and also allows you to use keyboard commands by which you can move pinned items on the Start Menu.

Apart from the features, the update addresses a couple of issues including IE mode in Microsoft Edge, improvements to the audio sync issues with Xbox Game Bar recordings, no horizontal or vertical lines artifacts on the screen, and more. This build also addresses security issues on Windows.

Microsoft didn’t share any details for the users running on Windows 11 21H2 build, so if you are on the 21H2 build then you can expect system-wide improvements. If you want to taste new features, then you can upgrade to the new Windows 11 22H2 version, here’s how you can update your PC to the newer version.

Whether you are on the 21H2 or 22H2, you can update your PC to the new version by navigating to the Settings app, then head over to the Windows Update, click on Check for Updates in case it is not showing new updates to you, once you see the update, click on download and install. That’s it.
