      Well, it wasn’t really 2H22. It was 2022.

      The correct terminology is 22H2 Windows 11, Mr Fastie

        Actually there’s several places it’s called 2022.

          But it’s never been 2H22 anywhere except four times in this article.

      Eye contact supposedly makes it appear that you are looking directly at the person on the screen, even when your eyes are looking directly at the camera.

      This should say, “… even when your eyes are NOT looking directly at the camera.”:

      “One thing you’ll discover is that many of the new features, especially those regarding security, are available only to enterprises, at least for now.”

      Good.  Let them debug for a change.

      “My favorite example is the search bar, which migrated from its position just above the message list to Outlook’s title bar. I didn’t like that change, but I adapted.”

      I still hate this, and probably always will.  The title bar is for repositioning windows on the screen; it should not contain fields.  They did this same nonsense in MS Teams.  Now I have to actively look to ensure that I’m not opening the search field every time I want to move a window.  And the search field is only a slightly different shade than the title bar itself, so it’s not obvious.

      Thanks for your interesting article.

      I agree that Tabs in Windows Explorer (aka File Explorer) should be a good new feature and was surprised not to able to see the facility on my PC after updating. A bit of googling revealed that it is there but not enabled yet on Windows 11 Home! A bit of googling shows show you can enable it yourself, or else I gather it will be enabled by Microsoft in October.

      Well, it wasn’t really 2H22. It was 2022. The entire news cycle about Windows 11, starting with

      Winver-1

      I have yet to find anywhere in my PC that it’s “2022”.

      I don’t know anything about the new Start Menu; I’ve been using StartAllBack since my initial upgrade to Windows 11, and StartIsBack in Windows 10.

      However, my instincts tell me that this will be a major improvement, especially to those who need a lot of folders open at the same time. A good example is creators. I’m in that group; when putting together an issue of this newsletter, I typically have a dozen folders open at the same time.

      I also often have several folders open at the same time, as well as Remote Desktop, Firefox, etc.  I’ve never found it to be a problem switching between folders to facilitate drag and drop and the like.  Call it personal preference.  I don’t really see tabs as being much different (or an improvement), as one must still use one’s mouse to change from one to another.

      I see no reason to ever upgrade to Win 11 because Win 10 works so well for me.

      I have yet to find anywhere in my PC that it’s “2022”.

      I see my little joke didn’t go over as well as I had hoped.

      Yes, 22H2 is the correct designation. But what about 2022? No, I didn’t see it in Windows 11 (at least not yet). But,

      Windows number confusion?
