As per a report by The Verge, via Reddit, it will just take one click for users to change their default browser to Chrome from Chromium. It is not known whether this quick switching could be possible for any other browser that you have chosen earlier and now want to change to Google Chrome.

The second important update is an enhanced Microsoft Defender for Endpoint. It now includes the ability to identify and intercept ransomware and advanced attacks.

Recently, a report suggested that Microsoft will be bringing the printing capabilities from Windows 11 to Windows 10 as a part of the Windows 10 version 22H2 update.
