Good evening friends! Microsoft has released new preview builds of Windows 11 (version 22H2) under the numbers 22621.1245 and 22623.1245 (KB5022358) for members of the Windows Insider Beta Program.
Assembly 22623.1245 – testing of new functions is available.
Assembly 22621.1245 – new features are disabled by default.
Reminder. Insiders who were previously on Build 22622 will be automatically upgraded to Build 22623 via the Service Pack. This package artificially increments the build number to make it easier for Microsoft engineers to distinguish between enabled and disabled devices by default.
If you are in a group with features disabled by default (build 22621.xxx), then check for updates and agree to install an optional update that will make these features available (build 22623.xxx).
Fixed a major crash in ShellExperienceHost when interacting with the Quick Actions menu.
Fixed several issues that caused Task Manager to crash.
Now you don’t need to make the Task Manager window too wide for the navigation bar to appear.
If text is scaled up, the search box will no longer overlap text in the title bar.
Made some fixes to fix issues where text in dialog boxes was cut off when text was zoomed in.
We fixed an issue where some portions of the title bar could not be used to drag a window.
Fixes in both builds
New! The procedure for installing pre-release updates for the .NET Framework has changed. Now all future pre-release (optional) .NET Framework updates will be displayed on the page “Settings” -> “Windows Update” -> “Advanced Options” -> “Optional Updates”. On this page, you can control which optional updates you want to install.
