Windows 11 Insider Dev Build 22533 – Changes

  • We have updated the flyout design for the hardware indicators for brightness, volume, camera privacy, camera on/off and airplane mode, to align with Windows 11 design principles. These new flyouts will appear when you press the volume or brightness keys on your laptop and will honor light/dark mode to give you a more coherent Windows experience. Brightness and volume indicators continue to be interactive with the update.

  • You can now search for voice access from the taskbar and pin voice access to your taskbar or Start like other apps as well as turn it on/ off.
  • We’re expanding the rollout of extending the 13 touch keyboard themes to IMEs, the emoji panel, and voice typing (first introduced with Build 22504) to all Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel.
  • When you press WIN + X or right click the Start icon it will now say “Installed apps” in the menu instead of “Apps & Features”.
  • It is now possible to uninstall the Clock app if you want.

Windows 11 Insider Dev Build 22533 – Fixes

  • General
    • Fixed an issue where Insiders may have seen error 0x8007012a during a driver or firmware update.
    • Addressed an issue causing Insiders to be unable to sign-in to certain apps sometimes, such as Feedback Hub.
    • Fixed the text in the exploit protection description in the Windows Security app so it just refers to Windows and not Windows 10.
    • Fixed an issue resulting in not being able to import photos from certain cameras and mobile phones into the Photos app (it would just loop forever saying 0 items found so far).
    • Launching Windows Sandbox, closing it, and then launch it again, should no longer lead to having two Windows Sandbox icons in the Taskbar (one of which is non-functional).
  • Taskbar
    • The Wi-Fi icon should appear more reliably in the Taskbar now.
    • If you have multiple monitors connected to your PC and right-click on the date and time on the taskbar on your primary monitor, explorer.exe will no longer crash.
    • Holding CTRL and hovering your mouse over the Task View icon in the taskbar should no longer make explorer.exe crash.
  • Settings
    • Mitigated an underlying issue related to the use of mica in Settings which was impacting overall reliability of the Settings app in recent flights.
    • Fixed an issue impacting some Insiders which was resulting in Settings crashing when trying to access the Installed Apps, Startup Apps, and Default Apps pages.
    • Mitigated an issue that was making the Wheel page in Settings crash when adding an action for an app.
    • You should no longer hear a crackle if playing audio and repeatedly clicking the volume slider in Quick Settings to change the volume.
  • Windowing
    • If you hover your mouse over a truncated window title in ALT + Tab or Task View a tooltip showing the full window name will now appear.
  • Input
    • Improved how the text color and buttons look with theming applied on candidate window, emoji panel and clipboard (before this, some buttons/text was hard to see with certain custom background colors).
    • The voice typing launcher should no longer unexpectedly reappear after clicking the microphone icon to invoke voice typing.
    • For Insiders with the updated input switcher experience, accessibility tools like Magnifier and Narrator should work better with it now.
