In addition to KB5030301 for Windows 11 21H2, Microsoft released KB 5030310 for Windows 11 22H2 as a new optional update yesterday evening. The new build number is 22621.2359.
This optional update will then be distributed to everyone at the end of the month (September 26, 2023). What is interesting is that this version also appears internally as 22631.2359 for Windows 11 23H2. So identical, but just with the additional function update. But back to this update.
- New! This update completes the work to meet the requirements of GB18030-2022. It removes and remaps characters for Microsoft Wubi input and Microsoft Pinyin U-mode input. You can no longer enter character code points that are not supported. All required codepoints are up to date.
- New! With this update, websites are added to the “Recommended” section of the Start menu. These web pages are personalized for you and come from your browsing history. This gives you quick access to the websites that are important to you. You can remove any website URL from the Recommended section using the context menu. To disable this feature, go to Settings > Personalization > Home. This settings page allows you to customize the settings for all recommended content in the Start menu.
