Microsoft brings one of the new Windows 11 features to Windows 10

Written by admin

Microsoft is bringing the new printing capabilities of Windows 11 to Windows 10 as it remains fully committed to the legacy operating system. Microsoft has previously stated that a “scoped set of features” will be delivered to Windows 10 in the coming months/years. The new print capability is the latest example of this new approach.

Microsoft plans to bring similar features to Windows 10 from Windows 11 to ease migration. By adding a number of new features to Windows 10, Microsoft says it is delivering on its promise that the “capability management experience for Windows 11 and Windows 10” will remain consistent through 2025.

The new printing experience for Windows 10 introduces the ability to add a PIN to a print job. When a PIN is added to a print job, the job will not print until you enter the same code into the printer. This is one of the new ways to avoid duplicate connections/misprints.

PIN integration can reduce paper and toner waste, according to Microsoft. At the same time, it will also provide some privacy and increased security to users, especially in an environment with more than one printer.

For business customers, Microsoft is also adding support for the Print Support App (PSA) platform to Windows 10. This allows businesses to add features and print workflows to the printing experience without installing a new driver.

Windows 11’s new print feature is coming to Windows 10 with Build 19044.1806 (KB5014666) available in the Release Preview Channel.

The same update also added a new easy-to-use feature that allows you to receive important notifications when Windows 10’s Do Not Disturb (Focus Assist) mode is enabled. This is also one of the new features of Windows 11.

Windows 10 version 22H2 update is coming

Microsoft plans to launch Windows 10 version 22H2 with some minor new features and improvements aimed primarily at enterprise customers. Version 22H2 should come as no surprise to anyone who follows Microsoft’s development closely. The company has previously confirmed that it plans to support Windows 10 until October 2025.

As mentioned at the outset, Microsoft officials recently confirmed that Windows 10 version 22H2 will be released with an expanded set of features. No details have been given and we don’t know what will be coming to the OS this year. However, it goes without saying that users should not expect much.

Windows 10 version 22H2 is already available for download in the Release Preview. If you want to try it right now, you can download the build by joining the Windows Insider Program.
