If you’re looking for a full operating system upgrade, the Windows 10 2022 Update is the one for you. This full OS install brings features like drag and drop on the taskbar, better touch navigation, snapping browser tabs in Edge, and a completely redesigned Task Manager. It also comes with the right click feature, which lets you access applications and settings right from the taskbar. You’ll love this upgrade!
Windows Studio Effects
Windows Studio Effects is one of many new features in the SEP 2022 update to Windows 11. It improves audio and video calls with artificial intelligence (AI). This update adds features such as Background Blur, which helps blur out background objects and reduce background noise. It also offers new features, such as Eye Contact, which helps participants feel more connected with the speaker. Live Captions is another useful feature, which transcribes audio content and helps deaf employees.
Microsoft has also added several new features, such as a modern version of Paint. It also has improved Notepad and Calculator. Another new feature is Clipchamp, a template-based video editing application.
Smart App Control
The upcoming Windows 11 Pro for SEP 2022 update is expected to include Smart App Control. This new security feature will work as a complement to User Access Controls to detect and block malicious applications and scripts. Smart App Control will work by detecting suspicious applications and scripts and asking you to allow or disallow them before you can run them.
Smart App Control is not enabled by default, and you will need to reinstall Windows to enable it. You can also turn off Smart App Control by switching it from Evaluation to Off. Please note that turning off Smart App Control permanently disables it and you will not be able to turn it back on.
Storage Spaces page
Windows 11 has introduced a new feature called Storage Spaces, which allows you to consolidate and expand physical drives into a single logical storage space. The feature supports several RAID-like features, including “two-way mirroring,” which requires two or more drives. You can also enable “dual parity resiliency,” which requires at least seven drives.
If you’re considering upgrading to Windows 11, you’ll be pleased to know that it includes a Widget panel. This new feature lets you customize the look and feel of your home screen to make it more user-friendly. In addition, it lets you access important information about your computer. It is similar to the “Live Tiles” feature that existed in previous versions of Windows. However, unlike Live Tiles, Widgets fetch data from online sources and keep you informed of important information via badges and notifications. In Windows 11 build 25201, these widgets can be made full-screen, which makes them much more useful. However, this feature is not enabled by default. To force this option, you must install a tool called ViveTool.
Another way to make widgets work is to change your default browser. Some widgets rely on Microsoft Edge, and disabling it may cause them to not work. If you don’t want to change your default browser, you can choose one by file type.
Memory Integrity is a built-in security feature that helps protect your PC from vulnerabilities. Microsoft first shipped it as an upgrade that turned on by default in fresh Windows installations. While this feature is great for protecting your PC, it has some drawbacks. For example, it isn’t compatible with certain PC builds, and it may cause compatibility issues with some Microsoft webcams. It’s important to keep this in mind when upgrading your computer.
Memory Integrity helps protect important Windows core processes from driver hijack attacks. It does this by creating an isolated environment and enforcing hardware virtualization. This way, malware cannot exploit low-level drivers and hijack your computer. Additionally, it prevents malicious code from being inserted into high-security processes.
Cortana AI voice assistant
Microsoft’s Cortana AI voice assistant was created by Microsoft corporate vice president Ashok Kuppusamy, who has worked on productivity software for over 25 years. He previously worked on Office, SharePoint, Teams, and Enterprise Search. Cortana’s focus is on Microsoft productivity software.
Cortana has long been part of the Windows setup process, guiding users through the initial setup. It has also been available in the taskbar at the bottom of the screen, but it’s no longer the default choice. Windows 11 also has some other big changes, including the removal of Internet Explorer by default and a new push by Microsoft to use the Edge browser. Another significant change is that the tablet mode will no longer be available.
