Microsoft has released its Windows 11 22H2 Moment 4 update under KB5030310 and Build 22621.2361 (Yes this is still 22H2 and not 23H2). The update brings in a heap of new features we have outlined in a dedicated article. And in case you are wondering, Microsoft says the update has no known issues. You can view the full changelog of the release below:

Highlights
  • New! This update introduces websites to the Recommended section of the Start menu. These websites will be personalized for you and come from your browsing history. This gives you quick access to the websites that are important to you. You can remove any website URL from the Recommended section using the shortcut menu. To turn off the feature, go to Settings > Personalization > Start. You can adjust settings for all recommended content on the Start menu on this Settings page. Commercial customers can manage this feature using a policy.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects Microsoft Excel. It stops responding when you try to share a file as a PDF in Outlook.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects the Korean touch keyboard. It completes the first character in the search box on the taskbar. This is not expected.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects the search box tooltip. It does not appear in the correct position.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects the search button. It disappears when you interact with the search flyout box.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects sleep mode. After you resume from sleep, a blank window appears that has the title "Windows Input Experience.”
  • This update addresses an issue that affects iCloud Calendar and Contacts. Outlooks fails to properly sync them when you use the iCloud for Windows app. To resume syncing, follow the steps in this Apple Support article.

On September 21, 2023, during a special event in New York, Microsoft announced it would ship a big feature update for Windows 11 on September 26. The day has arrived, which means those using stable Windows 11 releases can download and install the Windows 11 Moment 4 update.

The Moment 4 update contains plenty of important and long-anticipated changes. Copilot, Microsoft's newest AI-powered assistant, is now out of preview with a fresh new icon on the taskbar. The taskbar finally lets you ungroup icons and show labels, and it houses a redesigned volume mixer with per-app sliders and easier output device switching. File Explorer also got multiple improvements, such as various archive formats support (RAR, TAR, 7Z, and more), better tabs, modernized UI elements, and more. Finally, there are new features for Paint, the Photos app, and Snipping Tool.

Windows 11 Moment 4 is now available as an optional update (KB5030310) via Windows Update. You can ignore it for now, but Microsoft will make it mandatory with the release of November's Patch Tuesday updates.

Here are the new features included in today's update:

On September 26, 2023, Microsoft released the Moment 4 update for Windows 11, delivering multiple new features and changes for customers. The redesigned File Explorer is a big part of the update, and it offers a modernized UI, RAR support (and more formats), a new Gallery section, and more.

However, the new File Explorer is not as silky smooth as you might have expected. The updated app has some notable performance problems, plus it ditched the ability to drag and drop files onto the address bar. In Windows 11 Moment 3 and earlier versions, you can grab a file and move or copy it to another directory by dragging it over the address bar. As spotted by Windows Latest, this convenience is no longer available—all you get now is a weird-looking stop icon.

According to a community post on the AMD forums, Microsoft's latest cumulative preview update KB5030310 can break AMD's Adrenalin graphics control panel and can cause custom settings to be reset inside the control panel every time the system reboots. Thankfully, Microsoft's latest update does not break graphics driver functionality, but it will be irritating for users that use the Adrenalin control panel a lot. According to responses on the AMD forum, several AMD users have experienced this Adreanlin resetting problem with the latest Windows update.

The issue isn't super serious, AMD's graphics drivers still work fine, and the Adrenalin control panel is functional, save for the part where custom user settings get reset at every reboot. So if you are a regular graphics card user and leave everything at their default settings, you shouldn't have any issues. But if you are an enthusiast and love to tinker with all of AMD's fancy features like Hyper RX, Anti-Lag, Radeon Boost, or RSR, this problem could be very frustrating to deal with.

Microsoft says Windows 11 22H2 now natively supports almost a dozen additional archive formats, including RAR, 7-Zip, Tar, and GZ archives.

The company has added support for 11 new file archive formats with this month's optional KB5031455 Preview cumulative update.

The updated list of supported archive types in Windows 11 now adds .rar, .7z, .tar, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .tar.zst, .tar.xz, .tgz, .tbz2, .tzst, and .txz, although support for password encrypted files is not yet available.

When asked for more details about the missing password-protected archive support, a Microsoft spokesperson said the company has nothing else to share at this time.

Redmond says it added the new file archive formats with the help of the open-source libarchive project, which means we will likely see other formats like LZH, LZH, and XAR.
