Windows 11 welcomes its first update of 2022, here’s what changes
Windows 11 hosted its first update of the year. It is currently dedicated to Insiders and will be published for everyone in the coming weeks. No drastic change on the horizon, but small improvements to make our lives easier.
Windows 11 gets off to a good start in 2022 by welcoming a whole new update. This is dedicated to Insiders who are registered in the Dev channel. It makes some welcome improvements.
With this new Build 22526, Microsoft is not reinventing the wheel. We have here a very minor update mainly dedicated to fixing bugs. If all goes well, it should be available to all users within a few weeks.
Windows 11, what does the update change?
The update fixes quite a few things but also adds a few features. Here are the four important additions reported by Microsoft:
- The ability to display the different windows in windowed instead of full screen when you press Alt Tab.
- Improved sound quality and microphones on Apple Airpods when connected to PC
- Windows Defender Credential Guard is enabled by default for added security
- File indexing has been improved to make searching faster in File Explorer
In short, we have very minor modifications here which will be almost invisible to the user. This update is primarily intended to fix bugs (and there are!). For example, Microsoft evokes the fact that some searches in the Start menu remained displayed transparently, or concerns about Widgets.
Windows 11 test: Microsoft makes its revolution smoothly
If you are on Windows 11, this new update will not be available immediately. When published, it will automatically download to your computer and install when you restart it.
As a reminder, Windows 11 was released in October 2021. Microsoft has completely revolutionized its design with this iteration, while keeping roughly the same operation as with Windows 10. A new free OS that also focuses on the security of your data. If your Windows 10 PC is compatible, the installation will be offered automatically in this first half of 2022. If you are in a hurry, you can always go and download it manually from the Microsoft site.
