2022 saw the release of the rather notorious 22H2 update for Microsoft Windows 11. Following its release earlier this year, users found them themselves facing performance issues while gaming.
As mentioned by Microsoft, âaffected games and apps are inadvertently enabling GPU performance debugging features not meant to be used by consumers.â
Due to the issues caused by Update 22H2, Microsoft had asked users to prevent their devices from manually updating their devices with Update 2252.
However, the tech giants have now released update KB5020044 that will most likely offer solutions to the problems faced by users. Despite not revealing the list of games affected by performance issues, Microsoft Windows has declared that the new update will fix any prior frame rate problems.
Other than the gaming issues, the update also provides fixes to users being unable to see the Task Manager in expected colors. Along with that, Microsoft has resolved the issue of certain applications becoming unresponsive when using keyboard shortcuts to change IME (Input Method Editor) modes.
When the gaming stutter issues surfaced after the release of Update 22H2, it was believed that the issues may have arisen from NVIDIA’s GeForce Experience software. After noting the issues surrounding the update, the software received an update in September.
However, many devices were still affected with decreased gaming performances.
