Microsoft appears to be ready to release Windows 11’s 22H2 update. The new version will bring several customization improvements to the operating system and may be released next Tuesday, September 20th. This prediction has just been reiterated by a user discovery @XenoPanther on twitter.
The developer found links to download the ISO version 22H2 through Microsoft’s own server. Clicking on the addresses does not initiate the download of the installation file, after all, the data is not yet available on the big tech servers — and possibly will not be accessible until the update is officially released.

The existence of pre-hosted links on the company’s server gives strength to rumors that the new version will be released soon. As usual, the update must be released through Windows Update. “Clean” installations will also be possible, but may require the user to have a Microsoft account – here’s how to get around this requirement.
Windows 11’s 22H2 update should bring possibilities for customizing the Start menu – reason for complaints from several users – and new features for the File Explorer, which will now have tabbed browsing.
An important feature that should become even more complete is the Task Manager. The tool will get a new design for easier use and native support for dark mode, as well as functions that contribute to error correction especially dedicated to application developers.
On a related note, despite focusing on Windows 11, Microsoft has recently released cumulative updates for Windows 10, 8.1 and 7 that aim to fix security holes and improve the stability of eligible systems.
