Microsoft Delivers Windows 11 2022 Update Fix for Gaming Issues

Microsoft is rolling out a preview fix for a gaming performance issue in Windows 11 2022 Update that was affecting some users.


A few weeks ago, sent a warning to 2022 Update users over gaming performance issues. Now the company is back to address the problem. Specifically, Microsoft has a fix ready and is asking Windows 11 users to test a preview before a public release.

“Some games and apps might experience lower than expected performance or stuttering on Windows 11, version 22H2,” Microsoft noted at the time. “Affected games and apps are inadvertently enabling GPU performance debugging features not meant to be used by consumers.”

Microsoft did not detail which specific games were seeing performance issues, but it was clearly enough. The company quickly issued an update block for affected systems, preventing them from upgrading to Windows 11 2022 Update.

The block was removed last week and Microsoft is now rolling out the full fix. It is part of the KB5020044 update which is current in preview.

Overcoming Problems

Microsoft has been dealing with a bunch of issues following the release of Windows 11 2022 Update (22H2). There have been printer issues, broken Windows Hello, and problems with the SSL/TLS handshake. Last week, Microsoft confirmed a new issue affecting relating to the Remote Desktop.

Also this week, Microsoft confirmed an issue with Windows 11 22H2 where the OS is causing problems when users change IME (Input Method Editor) modes. Microsoft says the KB5020044 update helps to mitigate the issue.
