Microsoft kicks off two new insider preview builds of Windows 11 to the beta channel in the Windows Insider program. Just like the previous releases, the new build goes official with 22622.590 and 22621.590 version numbers, with one build rolling out with new features while on the second build new features are off by default. Both builds bring a bunch of fixes to the beta channel, read along to know more details about the Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22622.590 update.
Microsoft plants the new cumulative update to the beta channel with the 10.0.22622.590 (KB5017846) firmware version. If you have opted for the beta channel in the Insider program then you’ll receive any of the two builds, if you received the 22621.590 with new features disabled by default, then you can request the 22622.590 to get access to the new features.
Moving to the changes, then the new update brings a fix to the control panel not opening from Start Menu, addresses another explorer.exe crashing issue, dark and light mode issue in File Explorer, memory leak issue, fixes the taskbar overflow flyout issues, and more.
Here’s the complete list of fixes coming with the new Windows 11 insider preview build.
Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22622.590 – Fixes
- We fixed the issue causing Control Panel to not launch from the Start menu, Search or if pinned to the taskbar in the previous flight.
- As a result of feedback from Windows Insiders, we have disabled the ability to share a local file directly to OneDrive using the built-in Windows share window that first began rolling out to Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel with Build 22622.436. We hope to bring this feature back in the future after further refinement of the experience. As we’ve mentioned previously, features we try out in the Dev or Beta Channels may not always ship.
- File Explorer
- Fixed an issue causing a small percentage of Insiders to experience repeated explorer.exe crashes after attempting to access certain folders on their systems in the previous Beta Channel build.
- As a one-time change to help people find their folders with the navigation pane updates, if the default folders pinned to File Explorer’s navigation pane had been unpinned, they will be re-pinned after upgrading.
- Fixed a recent issue where if File Explorer was open when you switched between light and dark mode, you could end up with some unreadable text / UI showing the wrong color.
- Fixed an issue where the New / Sort / View / etc buttons in the command bar could become noticeably clipped vertically after increasing your text scaling in Accessibility Settings.
- The search box background should no longer unexpectedly have a dark background sometimes when you’re using light mode.
- If you move keyboard focus to the tab row (using F6), pressing the arrow keys to move keyboard focus within the row will now include setting focus to the close button within the tab.
- If File Explorer is maximized and the taskbar is set to autohide, hovering your mouse on the bottom of the screen should now actually bring up the taskbar.
- Fixed a memory leak which was happening when closing File Explorer windows.
- Fixed a GDI objects leak when resizing the navigation pane in File Explorer, which could potentially lead to content in File Explorer not rendering correctly over time for Insiders who resized the navigation pane frequently.
- The taskbar overflow flyout should now follow your accent colour like the rest of the taskbar does when “Show accent color on Start and taskbar” is enabled under Settings > Personalization > Colors.
- The apps in the taskbar overflow flyout should now be in the correct order when using an Arabic or Hebrew display language.
- When the taskbar is center aligned and full, the widgets entry point will now collapse to a shorter width to give you a little more room on the taskbar.
- Fixed a couple of issues related to the taskbar overflow which could lead to sporadic explorer.exe crashes.
Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22621.590 & 22622.590 – Fixes
- We fixed an issue that affects cldflt.sys. A bugcheck occurs when it is used with Microsoft OneDrive.
- We fixed an issue that affects robocopy. Robocopy fails to set a file to the right modified time when using the /IS
