Microsoft has officially released the third incremental upgrade for Windows 11 22H2 update. The new Windows 11 KB5020044 is widely available for users on Windows 11 version 22H2. Usually, Microsoft kicks off the non-security preview releases as an optional update. However, because of the holiday season, there won’t be any non-security preview build next month.
This update will be downloaded automatically. The newly launched update will come as a Cumulative Update for Windows 11 Version 22H2 (KB5020044) upgrade. This is essentially a small gradual build that weighs between 250 MB and 350 MB depending on your system’s architecture
