Microsoft has begun rolling out a optional update in preview, KB5020044, which contains the patch that presumably corrects the problems detected when running video games in Windows 11 2H22. This means that unless you are using the Windows Insider build, the update must be downloaded manually, which can be done by first going to Settings and then Windows Update.
