Windows 11’s first big update “version 22H2”, officially released on September 20, offers a variety of enhancements to key features in the OS. For example, Windows 11 version 22H2 brings folder support to the Start menu and allows you to adjust the size of pinned icons or recommended activities.

It also enables support for “drag and drop” on the taskbar, allowing users to drop files to apps via the taskbar easily. Other features include tabs support in File Explorer, a new sidebar in File Explorer, actionable suggestions, new layouts for snapping windows, Microsoft account deeper integration in Settings, and more.

Windows 11 version 22H2’s nifty change is the ability to adjust system volume using the scroll wheel. While it’s already possible to adjust the volume using your mouse if it supports media mode, Windows 11 22H2 new feature means you can control your PC’s volume via the mouse wheel of any mouse.

This is a handy feature and it was added to Windows 11 with Build 22478 in September of 2021, and later shipped to the consumers with the 2022 feature update.
