In an article by The Verge, Microsoft is planning to release Windows 11 22H2 update on 20 September. The Verge said they know this from sources who are familiar with the giant software company’s plans.
Windows 11 22H2, which Microsoft has been beta-testing for several months, will have a variety of new enhancements, including app folders in the Start menu, drag and drop on the taskbar, and new touch gestures and animations.
Microsoft is also introducing a new Live Captions accessibility tool that is perfect for those who are hard of hearing, deaf, or who wish to automatically caption audio. The big update also has a new Voice Access capability that enables users to command their PCs verbally.
In Windows 11 22H2, the Task Manager is also getting a makeover with a new dark mode and a much nicer look that includes a new command bar and an efficiency mode to reduce resource consumption by programmes.
In addition, Snap Layouts will also receive a significant upgrade that will make it simpler to drag an app to show all of the available layouts for organising applications.
Tabs for File Explorer are also being developed by Microsoft and will be released after 20 September. According to Windows Central, a second 22H2 update with File Explorer tabs and a new Suggested Actions feature is scheduled for release later this year.
