Windows 11 22H2 is the first feature update for the desktop version of the operating system. Although this is an incremental update, it’s not straightforward to determine whether the latest version of Windows is already installed on your desktop computer, laptop, or tablet.

You won’t find the update’s name anywhere in the system, but each release, like Windows 10, receives an identification number. This time around, the feature update is known as version 22H2, which reflects the year (22) and part of the year (H2 or second half) that indicates when the company plans to roll it out.

To confirm the version of Windows 11 22H2 installed on your device, you can use the “winver” command and the “About” settings page.

This guide will teach you the steps to confirm if Windows 11 22H2 is already installed on your computer. (See also this video tutorial with the steps highlighting this process on the Pureinfotech channel.)
