Windows 11 is out and while more and more people are upgrading their PCs, many are hesitant because of the upgrade seems to be seriously imacting the speed of some solid state drives (SSD). Microsoft is reporting that they have been working on the issue and it looks like a patch may be ready. A recent Windows update appears to fix the issue, but unfortunately it isn't something that will simply install. We dug deep to find it and here is what we learned.While the patch was pushed out to Windows 11 PCs last month, it won't automatically download. The patch, KB5007262, must be manually downloaded.
Follow these steps to install the Windows 11 KB5007262 update:
- Open Settings
- Choose 'Windows Update' on the left side of the screen
- Click 'Check for updates'
- If the KB5007262 update is available, wait for it to automatically download and install
- Restart your device to apply the changes
