All eyes are on the recent big update to Windows 11, known as 22H2 (and whose installation you can force if you want to try it), but we do not forget that there is still another edition of Windows with a very large user base and that it does not stop updating either. And now Microsoft has confirmed, not only that Windows 10 will have its own update (with the same name), but it will be released in a few weeksnext October 2022, after being tested since the end of July for users of the Windows Insider program.
Nevertheless, changes in Windows 10 22H2 are not expected to be comparable to those seen in Windows 11 22H2: Although Microsoft has already ported to Windows 10 before changes implemented before in its successor, nothing indicates that we will see the same in this case.
So this Windows 10 22H2 could be just a cumulative update that fixes various bugs and improve the stability of the system, in such a way that it would only be accompanied by an increase in the build number of the operating system (which would become build 19045.1865).

And it is that we must that, before Windows 11, the users of the Microsoft OS were free to place the taskbar in any of the four edges of the screen. However, bothering to introduce this small change seems strange, given that Microsoft claims that the percentage of users who alter the default position of the taskbar is insignificantdata that they precisely raised to leave it fixed at the bottom of the screen when launching Windows 11.
Although, in any case, everything indicates that the new update could also include a new method to make it easier to change default appsa change observed months ago by Insider users and that follows the same trend already observed in Windows 11.
