Shortly after Microsoft began rolling out the Windows 11 2022 Update, several users complained that they were having issues with their printer drivers after installing the update. Consequently, Microsoft placed a compatibility hold on all Windows devices with the affected printer drivers, thus preventing them from upgrading to the Windows 11 2022 Update. However, Microsoft has since resolved the issue and lifted the hold, allowing users to upgrade to the Windows 11 2022 Update.

And now, Microsoft has quietly updated the Windows Health Dashboard and highlighted that though, with minimal changes and feature enhancements, the Windows 10 version 22H2 has hit broad deployment.

Microsoft further indicated in the Windows Health Dashboard that:

The Windows 10, version 22H2 feature update is entering its final rollout phase and is now designated for broad deployment. As part of the broad deployment phase, Microsoft is offering this update to an expanded set of eligible devices running Windows 10, version 20H2, and later versions.

This means that if you are a Windows 10 user, you should be able to check for the update, find the Windows 10, version 22H2 feature update, and install it on your PC. The update experience from Windows 10 version 21H2 should be considerably fast according to Microsoft.

It is worth noting that Windows 10 version 21H1 is edging closer to its end-of-support date. If your device is running on this version, you will no longer get updates as of December, 13. You should consider making the upgrade before then. Windows 10 version 22H2 is set to reach end of support on May 14, 2024.

However, Windows 10 version 21H1 will still continue to get updates from Microsoft. The version is expected to reach end of support on June 13.
