Microsoft has recently released a major update for Windows 11 22H2. Named “Moment 1”, it introduced a set of novelties. There were no surprises since all these little people were announced during the launch of the 22H2 last September.
Microsoft won’t stop there. Its team is currently working on the sequel. A new “major” update is clearly planned. Called Moment 2, it will roll out in early 2023. There is no exact date as this will happen after the 22H2 upgrade and the Moment 1 update has been rolled out.
The company remains discreet about the content. However, a preview of sorts took place during a webcast on the Windows Insider program’s YouTube channel. More specifically, Microsoft presented Windows 11 build 23003 according to our colleague Neowin. This release is supposed to be an early release of Moment 2. A discussion took place around the optimized taskbar for tablets and that was it. So we don’t know much about Moment 2.
Windows 11 and Moment 1
Meanwhile, the Moment 1 update brings many improvements. The highlights are
- File Explorer supports tabs.
- Suggested actions: Windows can highlight phone numbers or dates to suggest certain actions, such as calling or scheduling an appointment.

- Share with multiple devices: Windows Share detects and displays multiple devices with which files can be shared.
- The Photos app is getting better.
- The Amazon Appstore, which allows the installation of Android applications on Windows, is available in 31 different countries.

Additionally, we have File Explorer support for tabs. Redmond explained on this topic
One of our most loved and used features, File Explorer, is getting better. Windows is always looking for ways to simplify your daily tasks and make collaboration as easy as possible. So we’re releasing tabs in File Explorer that allow you to easily organize your files and easily switch between your folders. The new Favorites section is the perfect place to pin your most used files.
