The next major version of Windows is complete: as expected, build 22621 is the shipping version of Windows 11 version 22H2.
Well, you know what I mean. There’s no real “RTM” anymore, and Windows 11 version 22H2 will be updated before and after it appears on new PCs and is released to the public. That’s the world we live in now.
Windows 11 build 22621 was first released to the Windows Insider Program’s Beta channel about two weeks ago. At that time, Microsoft noted that “the build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop is no longer present in this build [but that] this doesn’t mean [it’s] done, and the watermark will return to Insiders in a future build.” Well, clearly it did mean that it was done.
Also, not coincidentally, Microsoft issued ISOs for this build at that time. So you can grab the final version of Windows 11 22H2 via the Windows Insider Preview Downloads website if you’d like to get a jump on things.
