Microsoft says that systems running Windows 11 22H2 will continue to receive non-security preview updates after initially stating they would no longer receive them after February 2024.

Under the new schedule revealed this week, Windows 11 22H2 optional updates will keep rolling out until mid-June 2025, depending on your Windows edition.

According to Microsoft's Modern Lifecycle Policy, Windows 11 22H2 Home and Pro editions will be retired on October 8, 2024, while Windows 11 22H2 Enterprise and Education will reach the end of servicing on October 14, 2025.

This forced rollout phase comes after systems running multiple editions of Windows 11 21H2 were automatically updated to Windows 11 22H2 before reaching the end of support on October 11, 2023.

Microsoft also lifted a compatibility hold that blocked Windows 11 23H2 upgrades after fixing a known issue causing desktop icons to glitch across desktops while using Windows Copilot on multi-monitor systems.

Microsoft now force installing Windows 11 23H2 on eligible PCs. Microsoft unveils new 'Sudo for Windows' feature in Windows 11.
