How to Change User Account to Administrator on Windows 10

Microsoft released Windows 11 22H2 last month, as the first major upgrade for the latest version of Windows. The company has also been working on a 22H2 update for everyone still using Windows 10, and now it’s rolling out.

Microsoft has released Windows 10 version 22H2, which is this year’s major update for Windows 10, just like 22H2 was the main update for Windows 11 this year. However, the upgrade for Windows 10 doesn’t have any significant new features — Microsoft described it as “providing a limited scope of new features and functionality delivered via a familiar, fast and reliable update experience.”

There’s no official list of changes in Windows 10 22H2. Bleeping Computer reports that the update adds an option to receive critical notifications when focus assist is enabled, and there may be other minor changes. Last year’s Windows 10 21H2 update, released alongside the first version of Windows 11, was also light on features.

It’s understandable that this update isn’t too exciting — Microsoft has shifted all feature development to Windows 11, and Windows 10 only remains for people with unsupported hardware (though there are workarounds) and organizations that don’t want to upgrade quite yet. Windows 10 will remain supported until October 14, 2025.

If you have a PC with Windows 10 installed, you should see the 22H2 update in Windows Update soon. You can also visit Microsoft’s website to create a DVD or USB installer for Windows 10 22H2.
