The optional update KB5022360 is out for all Windows 11 22H2 users. Here is the direct link to download KB5022360 offline installer.
Though not on the schedule. i.e., Patch Tuesday, Microsoft released a new cumulative update called KB5022360. This is a non-security and optional update. That means the update will not be installed automatically (optional), and there is no need to be in a hurry to install it (non-security).
As with most optional updates, KB5022360 is packed with fixes and improvements.
One of the issues addressed in the update pertains to the Input Method Editor (IME), which causes applications to stop responding when you use the mouse and keyboard simultaneously. Another issue addressed is related to Japanese Kanji and multibyte character set (MBCS) apps, which can cause the cursor to move to the wrong location when typing.
The update also addresses a strange problem where users are unable to open images found using the search feature on the taskbar. Additionally, the update addresses an issue that affects some game controllers, which can prevent the computer from entering Sleep mode when the controller is connected.
Like all updates, you can uninstall it from the Windows Update page in the Settings app. All you have to do is go to the page and click on the “Check for updates” and then “Download & Install” buttons.
