Windows 10 New Update Makes it Easier Upgrading To Windows 11


On November 30, 2022, an out-of-band update was published to improve the out-of-box experience of Windows 10, versions 2004, 20H2, 21H1, 21H2, and 22H2 (OOBE). It allows eligible devices to update to 
Windows 11 as part of the OOBE process. This update will only be available if an OOBE update is installed.

Microsoft has been keen to promote Windows 11 since its release last year, claiming "good" feedback. The company said in May of this year that Windows 11 was ready for widespread deployment. Meanwhile, for versions nearing the end of support, Microsoft has been urging Windows 10 21H1 customers to upgrade to Windows 11. Microsoft even encourages Windows 8.1 users to switch to a new PC to enjoy all of the benefits of Windows 11.

For the first time, Microsoft began releasing the next Windows as an Out of Box Experience (OOBE) upgrade to Windows 10 22H2 customers a few days ago.



The support document regarding the new OOBE update (KB5020683) states:

This update applies to the following:

  • Windows 10, version 2004 (Home and Professional only)
  • Windows 10, version 20H2 (Home and Professional only)
