Microsoft released Windows 10 22H2 Build 19045.4353 (KB5036979) to the Release Preview Channel for Insiders on Windows 10 version 22H2.

You’ll start seeing notifications related to your Microsoft account in Settings > Home.

These notifications keep you informed about various aspects of your account. You will be notified about your account status, including any important security information or recent activity that pertains to your account’s security.

Additionally, you’ll receive updates regarding your Microsoft subscriptions, such as Office 365 or OneDrive storage. Microsoft will alert you about security settings, suggesting when it might be beneficial to enable two-factor authentication or update your password to enhance your account’s security.

The notifications will appear in two places:

  • Start Menu
  • Settings: Notifications will be displayed directly in Settings > Home.

If you find these notifications overwhelming, you can manage them in Settings. Here’s how:

  1. Go to Settings > Privacy & security > General.
  2. Under Notifications, you can control how notifications are displayed for all apps, including Microsoft account notifications.
