Windows 10 21H2 Build 19044.2075 adds new taskbar options

Besides the new Release Preview build of Windows 11, Microsoft has also updated Windows 10 with new features. The company released KB5017380, Build 19044.2075, to Insiders on the Release Preview channel that adds new options to the taskbar properties in Settings, disables TLS 1.0 and 1.1, and several fixes. There's no word from the company on when they plan to release a newer Windows 10 22H2 version.

Secure Boot and TPM strict requirements were actually introduced in Windows 10

With release of Windows 11, Microsoft introduced strict hardware requirements that made outdated a ton of modern hardware in a moment. The OS required a newest CPU and a Secure Boot feature with TPM 2.0. For that, Microsoft was heavily criticized by users. As a new research shows, Windows 11 wasn't the first OS with such requirements. Actually, it was Windows 10 where Secure Boot and TPM were mandatory.

Windows 10 version 22H2 will get some new features

There is some mystery around the new features that Windows 10 version 22H2 will get. Obviously, we should not expect drastic changes, as the Redmond firm is now solely focused on Windows 11, which already has its own version 22H2 with a massive set of new things. Still, Windows 10 version 22H2 is coming, and everyone is curious what it will bring with it. Microsoft keeps it in secret, but points that it will have something new.

Windows 10 version 22H2 is now available in the Release Preview channel

Microsoft has made available Windows 10 version 22H2 to insiders using the Release Preview channel. Starting today, they receive Build 19045.1865 (KB5015878) in form of an optional update. To install it, you need to check for updates in Settings > Update & recovery > Windows Update and select KB5015878 in the list.
