Windows 10’s 22H2 update might not actually do much of anything

The Windows 11 22H2 update is working its way through Microsoft’s Windows Insider testing channels, and we’d expect it to begin rolling out to Windows 11 PCs at some point in the next few weeks or months. But Microsoft has had almost nothing to say about the next major update to Windows 10 beyond the fact that the operating system will keep getting yearly updates for the foreseeable future.

And the Windows 10 22H2 update is actually already out there for those who know how to install it. Neowin has published a list of commands that can be typed into the Command Prompt or Windows Terminal to turn a fully updated Windows 10 21H2 install into a 22H2 install. The commands use Microsoft’s Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool to make tweaks to your Windows install and require the optional KB5014666 update for Windows 10 to be installed first.

The catch is that enabling Windows 10 22H2 doesn’t actually seem to do much beyond incrementing the version number on the “About Windows” screen.
