Windows 10’s next major download, the Creators Update, is getting closer and closer to its anticipated release in April. The update follows up on Anniversary Update with a host of new solutions aimed at creative types, such as more closely integrated 3D and virtual reality capabilities, enhanced sharing, and better gaming.

Creators Update will also provide developers and more technical users with new tools, allowing them to create and implement better solutions for their customers and organizations. To help those folks get more up to date with what is coming in the next major version of Windows 10, Microsoft is hosting a Windows Developer Day aimed at providing a glimpse at what is new.

If you've been waiting for the Windows 11 22H2 update or just noticed that one computer hasn't been asking you to update while others have, there could be a very good reason for the delay.

Microsoft has acknowledged a new issue regarding computers running the Windows 11 2022 Update (or version 22H2). The problem may cause performance degradation when copying large multi-GB files by up to 40%.

"A large (multi-GB file) might see as much as 40% less throughput over SMB when copying down (reading). Copying that same file to a non-22H2 machine (writing) won’t see this problem."
