Windows 10 22H2 Build 19045 found in KB5014666 Preview

Support for the Windows 10 operating system will last until the end of 2025, which means that users will receive relatively large updates every year. Of course, there is no talk of full-fledged functional updates, but some changes may still appear in them.

In the recently released optional update KB5014666 for Windows 10 versions 20H2, 21H1 and 22H2, enthusiasts have found packages to upgrade to version 22H2. If you manually activate these packages, then in the OS properties the system version number will change to 22H2, and the build number will change to 19045. From this we can conclude that Windows 10 version 22H2 will continue to be based on the May 2020 Update (version 2004) codebase , as well as several previous similar updates.

Currently, a forced upgrade to Windows 10 version 22H2 does not unlock any new features. It is possible that in the release version of this update there will be no innovations for consumers. It certainly doesn’t make sense for regular users to manually activate packages to migrate to 22H2.

If you still want to experiment, then after installing KB5014666 you can upgrade to version 22H2 using the following commands, which must be run on the command line as an administrator:

dism /online /add-package /packagepath:%windir%servicingPackagesMicrosoft-Windows-Product-Data-22h2-EKB-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~en-US~10.0.19041.1806.mum

If you need to roll back the changes, then use the same commands, but replace add-package on the remove-package in each of them.
