Microsoft isn’t fairly able to ship Home windows 11 model 23H2, and so it has shipped a second preview model of its Fall Replace as an alternative as KB5031455, or the 2023-10 Cumulative Replace Preview for Home windows 11 model 22H2.

Microsoft doesn’t doc this, however I imagine there’s one huge distinction between this replace and final month’s preview replace (KB5030310): When you set up this construct, I imagine you’ll in actual fact get all the options that Microsoft promised for the Fall Replace, like Copilot, Home windows Backup, a modernized File Explorer, and extra. (The PCs I’ve right here in Mexico are all on 23H2 already, so I can solely take a look at this idea in digital machines.) Supporting this idea, the discharge notes for the September preview replace didn’t listing all these options, however this one does.

Along with the big-bang options, this preview replace may also add different options like dynamic lighting customization choices for {hardware} makers and numerous fixes. It additionally makes high quality enhancements to the servicing stack, which is the system part that installs Home windows updates.

Oh, and if you happen to are on Home windows 11 model 23H2 already, as I’m, there’s a non-preview model of this replace (KB5031455) accessible for you as properly. Fascinating.
