Releasing Windows 10, version 22H2 to the Release Preview Channel
QuoteToday we are releasing the first preview build of Windows 10, version 22H2. Windows 10 Build 19045.1865 (KB5015878) is now available in the Release Preview Channel for Windows Insider Program for Business participants to validate on devices in their organizations.
This build is also available to any Windows Insider in the Release Preview Channel via the "seeker" experience in Windows Update. This means Insiders currently in the Release Preview Channel can go to Settings > Windows Update and choose to download and install Windows 10, version 22H2. Once an Insider updates their PC to Windows 10, version 22H2, they will continue to automatically receive new servicing updates through Windows Update (the typical monthly update process).
