Microsoft will release the update Windows 11 22H2 (Sun Valley 2) later this month on September 20. The update brings small improvements and new features to the operating system. Check out the main news below:

The start menu

A new feature that will let you pin more apps or activities to the recommendations section of the Start menu is being tested by Microsoft. In the future, the tab will also be able to open files in Office Web. However, it is necessary that the device does not come with full desktop applications.

Task Manager

The task manager gets a new design based on Fluent UI and WinUI, which makes the app more accessible on touchscreen devices.

The new version will use a new sidebar or hamburger menu to display processes and performance options. The top bar now displays the brand and name of the device, model, processor or RAM used.


Taskbar drag-and-drop functionality will return, allowing you to drag files to apps pinned to the taskbar or even grab apps to create shortcuts.

memory integrity

A new feature prevents malicious code from entering high-security processes. The feature can be enabled in Windows Security by going to Device Security > Core Isolation.
