Windows 11 Update

Recommended Posts

I've received a notice on my Windows 11 computer that there is an update available -- Version 22H2.  I took a look at the "See what's in this update" page and I don't see anything that I need or would use (things like "create folders for your apps in Start" or "show off your family with personalized emojis" or "make videos in minutes").

So I'm wondering if there is any reason why this update "has" to be done.  And if it does, anyone have an idea how long this update will take?  While I do most updates, they normally don't involve a whole new version of the OS, so I'm a little leery of doing this update.

You don't have to do it now.

I googled: windows 11 22H2 size

and the first hit said: "around 5 GB".

Eventually MS will stop providing security updates for your current version of Windows.  But they will warn you before this happens.  You still won't "have to" do it at that time, but you should.

Linda I believe they dropped the twice annual major update to just one and that is it. A similar update should be coming to Windows 10 as well. I have only one Windows 11 computer and it has not been offered yet. There are still glitches in 11 even if they can't be seen by all on every device.

I stick with doing all of them regardless. YMMV

Safe Computing!

I did the update yesterday - the download took some time but the transfer rate was low - I guess their servers were busy. From memory, the restart to load the new version took about 45 minutes.

So far no issues. I have not tries any new 'features' - I did it to get the latest security updates.

This one, 22H2, seems to be rolling out.  My wife installed it a couple days ago on her main laptop but on my main laptop it does not show up when I check for updates.  Both of our main laptops are Lenovo Flex 5 models, though we have different SSD drives and video.  We have not checked our smaller laptops that are running Windows 11.

Still not here either Bill on my main system, the only Windows 11 system I upgraded. I have decided to replace my main unit and get this: https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/p/desktops/ideacentre/yoga-a-series/yoga-aio-7-27ach6/f0g7002gus?adcampaign=CSE_Connexitycon&channel=cse&cid=us%3Acse%3Aqza7ob&cnxclid=16649345203847478791310070302008005&orgRef=https%3A%2F%2Frd.bizrate.com%2F&source=connexity&szredirectid=16649345203847478791310070302008005&utm_source=pocket_mylist

The only reason is the 4k screen. I played with it at Best Buy yesterday and the 4k is breathtaking.  I like the ability to swivel it to portrait mode. I already have the 32GB to upgrade it and it comes with a 1TB main. The sound built in is also almost as good as my Bose Companion 3 series 2 external speakers. Nothing wrong with mine which sells for $1500 and change now and I believe it will go fast at $1100.00 OBRO. I had planned on keeping it after getting the drivers set up correctly for 11, until I got to see the new one in person. I am going to sell it first since I have a fast backup desktop system already set up behind me. If you get a chance check it out just to see the tech on only 4k Touchscreen AIO I could find at a reasonable price. I am going to try to find it discounted on Black Friday or next week at the Amazon out of cycle sales event. https://www.amazon.com/earlyaccess?ref=US_PEAS22_LU_GW_Desk_DashQuad5&pf_rd_r=SSWNXVZ4467RE5M1NX2T&pf_rd_p=10a61e1c-d2a6-48a3-896c-620af607d98c&pd_rd_r=2254f1b4-baba-44b0-a86a-dab9ca701803&pd_rd_w=F5ZUi&pd_rd_wg=ViNYo&ref_=pd_gw_unk

My main computer updated to 22H2 a couple days ago, which has a 4K display.  We are holding off checking our other 2 Windows 11 laptops until we get to our winter home base in a week, where we have better internet than here in Cottonwood Arizona.

Bill what's your 4k main computer a desktop or laptop?

We only have laptops.  The 4K one is a 15" laptop, a Lenovo Flex 5.  I have good eyes, especially after cataract surgery with multi-focal lenses .  Diane doesn't like it the times she ends up using the laptop, though she can see the screen.  Her 15" laptop is 1080p.   My older 15" laptop, a Dell, is also 4K, but doesn't meet Windows 11 specs.

Gotcha, I figured it was a laptop. I too like the quad HD I have now more than the Viewsonic 1080p full HD with my cataract implants. The 4k is stunning on that 27" screen.

Lynn has not had the surgery and prefers her 1080 to my QHD screen. Hmmm.
