Microsoft kicks off Windows 11 Build 22000.1639 for release preview channel

Microsoft has just released this month’s release preview build for Windows 11. The newest build is labeled with Windows 11 22000.1639 version number. The gradual upgrade brings the upgraded auto-learning face recognition feature along with a big list of fixes. Read along to know all details about the new Windows 11 build 22000.1639 update.

Usually, Microsoft pushes release preview updates to both Windows 11 22H2 and 21H2 builds. However, today’s release is limited to Windows 11’s original release. The gradual upgrade is seeding with the 22000.1639 (KB5022905) build number. If you’ve opted the release preview channel in the Windows insider preview program, then you will receive the new build on your Windows 11 PC.

Talking about the changes, then today’s build brings an advanced auto-learning face recognition feature and gets support for the United Mexican States’ daylight-saving time change order for 2023. For fixes, the new update addresses hyperlink not working in Microsoft Excel issue, color filter settings issue, streaming affected after an advertisement in certain apps, and more.

Here’s the complete list of changes coming with the Windows 11 build 22000.1639.

  • New! We added an advanced auto-learning feature for facial recognition.
  • We fixed an issue that stopped hyperlinks from working in Microsoft Excel.
  • We fixed an issue that affected the Color filters setting. When you selected Inverted, the system set it to Grayscale instead.
  • We fixed an issue that affected the Appx State Repository. When you removed a user profile, the cleanup was incomplete. Because of that, its database grew as time passes. This growth might have caused delays when users signed into multi-user environments like FSLogix.
  • We provided support for the United Mexican States’ daylight-saving time change order for 2023.
  • We fixed an issue that affected IE mode. The text on the status bar was not always visible.
  • We fixed an issue that affected the Z-order of two maximized windows. A window that was behind another window might have appeared on top.
  • We fixed an issue that affected AppV. It stopped file names from having the correct letter case (uppercase or lowercase).
  • We fixed an issue that affected Microsoft Edge. The issue removed conflicting policies for Microsoft Edge. This occurred when you set the MDMWinsOverGPFlag in a Microsoft Intune tenant and Intune detected a policy conflict.
  • We fixed an issue that affected Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). Using a provisioning package for bulk provisioning failed.
  • We fixed an issue that affected a certain streaming app. The issue stopped video playback after an advertisement played in the app.
  • We fixed an issue that affected the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS). LSASS might have stopped responding after you ran Sysprep on a domain-joined machine.
  • We fixed an issue that affected parity virtual disks. Using Server Manager to create them failed.

If your PC is running on Windows 11 (original release), then you can install the new release preview build on your system. You can check for the new update by visiting Settings > Windows Update > Check for updates.
