Microsoft has released the latest non-security update for Windows 11 22H2. The new build number for this release is 22621.2070 (KB5028254). It includes a number of improvements and bug fixes, including one that will make brightness settings more accurate.


  • This update makes brightness settings more accurate.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects certain display and audio devices. They are missing after your system resumes from sleep.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects Widgets. They unpin from the taskbar when you do not expect it.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects virtual private networks (VPN). There might be excessive Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) requests to the network gateway. This occurs when the VPN is on a wireless mesh network that uses an aggressive throttling algorithm. Because of this, network performance is poor.

How to get this update:​

This is an optional update that only appears when you manually search for updates in the stable (production) version of Windows 11 22H2.

Go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update. After checking for updates, in the Optional updates available area, you’ll find the link to download and install the update.
