Microsoft has definitely cleaned up its behavior when it comes to Windows Update. In Windows 10, the company has done away with seasonal service packs and pushed updates more regularly, in some cases almost weekly. The rolling update system got off to a rocky start, but Microsoft finally found its rhythm (after numerous missteps). Now Windows users only have to wait two major updates a year, bringing new major features and sometimes bugs. This practice continues in Windows 11, with the next major update – version 22H2 – just a month away. The update will bring a lot of highly requested features, including some basic features that Microsoft inexplicably removed in Windows 11.

Windows 10 was supposed to be the last version of Windows, at least according to Microsoft, but here we have Waiting for the next big feature drop in Windows 11. In a way, the latest version of the operating system is what Windows 10X would look like if Microsoft hadn’t put it on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic. That version of the OS was designed for dual-screen devices, such as the canceled Surface Neo, which seemed impractical during the crisis.

While not a huge leap from Windows 10, Windows 11 will start with radical changes Menus and, more importantly, taskbars go down in history. While some Windows users were happy with the apparently touch-centric design, most were still unhappy with the basic functionality that Microsoft removed and so far hasn’t brought back. That’s going to change in the coming months as Windows 11 brings features that Microsoft has recently started teasing.

Details on pending updates have surfaced on The Verge and Windows Central, both Both report the same supposed release date etc. At the very top of the list of new features is the ability to drag and drop items on the taskbar. It may seem odd that this feature was removed in the transition from Windows 10 to Windows 11, but it’s even weirder that it hasn’t been returned. The new Start menu still isn’t for some, and it also brings back the ability to group apps into folders. Users can also reportedly add another row of fixed apps, but it doesn’t seem possible to set an arbitrary height for the area.

The next major update to Windows 11 will also bring major changes to some first-party apps. For example, File Explorer finally has tabs, although Split View seems far from Microsoft’s mind. The file manager will also get a cleaner user interface and better integration with OneDrive. The Settings app will also get some new pages, including a family safety section, and more apps and parts of the system interface will support dark mode.

Microsoft has not given an actual date for the release of Windows 11 22H2, but both reports cite claims that it will Sources that roll out starting September 20. Of course, this won’t happen to everyone at once, and it may take several waves to reach most Windows 11 users. However, given Microsoft’s track record, if you do have the option to delay an update, it might be wiser to release it a month before launch, no matter how attractive the new feature may seem.
