  • Updates an issue that provides the wrong Furigana result when you cancel the Japanese reconversion.
  • Updates an issue that resets syncing for Microsoft OneDrive to “Known folders only” after you install a Windows update.
  • Updates an issue that prevents audio headsets that connect to a device using USB from working if the device has certain third-party audio drivers.
  • Updates an issue with resizing images that might produce flickering and residual line artifacts.
  • Updates an issue that prevents you from typing any words in the username box during the out-of-box experience (OOBE) process. This issue occurs when you use the Chinese Input Method Editor (IME).
  • Updates an issue with copying and pasting a text box into Office 365 apps. If you use an IME, you won’t be able to insert text into the text box.
  • Updates an issue that might cause your device to stop working when making a touch input gesture. This issue occurs if you bring more fingers into contact with the touchpad or screen during the middle of the gesture.
  • Updates an issue that might cause an external monitor to display a black screen after Hibernation. This issue might occur when the external monitor connects to a docking station using a certain hardware interface.
  • Updates an issue that resets the brightness for standard dynamic range (SDR) content on high-dynamic range (HDR) monitors. This occurs after you restart your device or reconnect to the device remotely.

Does anyone know if there will be something like 22H2?

for which Windows? Windows 10 or Windows 11 (or maybe both)?

22H2 for Windows 11 came out Tue. Sept. 20 (aka. public release or GA, general availability) as build 22621.382 > {x64 ESD link for Win11 22H2}
though recently Win11 22H2 got a recent "refreshed" release with build 22621.525 > {x64 ESD link for Win11 22H2 22621.525 refresh}
-both "consumer" US English releases

Windows 10 version of 22H2, on the other hand, coming sometime in October 2022 (most likely being build 19045)

Of course I meant Windows 10.
They do release monthly rollups, but that is not the same thing as those bi-yearly (I think) updates, which I suspect are finished.

Any issues?
Nope, except for what was part of the August patch-Tuesday, (if not also sometime before that) where CBS insists one or more Bluetooth files are corrupted.
Maybe if they included the September patch-Tuesday, which was one week before the 11 22H2 release, then this wouldn't happen.

But Microsoft apparently froze updates to 11 22H2 before the September patch-Tuesday. :mad:

No, it gives you the 22h2 update on win 10 (don't have to upgrade to win11 to get it)

For anybody who can't wait, this enablement is readily available. It's KB5015684 in both .CAB and .MSU files. Ed Tittel posted the info on his site in late July.

Oh, it really is coming then.
But I can't find any info about it, which is weird. Normally they release a preview and some sort of release notes a few months before.
