Windows 11 22H2 (build 22621)

The second iteration of Windows 11 was released in GA in September 2022 with build 22621.521 and officially branded as Windows 11 22H2 (or Windows 11 2022). Due to the release of the second version, the original Windows 11 was rebranded to Windows 11 21H2. Some weeks after the release of Windows 11 22H2, a new version of Windows 10 called 22H2 was also released. So, it is best to also mention the build numbers as they are in some cases the only differentiator programmatically for the different Windows 10 and 11 versions. Some major criticisms of the original Windows 11 version have been addressed with 22H2, which significantly improves the UI and user experience. These are discussed in the following sections.
