Sehatnews – Windows 11 received its first major update this fall, and since then bug fixes have been the order of the day in the beta channels. New features, on the other hand, are rather rare, even in the preview builds. But now Microsoft has released two versions that are more interesting.
As usual, Microsoft presented the new builds (beta channel) with the numbers 22621.885 and 22623.885 in a blog post . It is now also common that there are two “twin builds”, namely Build 22623.885 and Build 22621.885. These only differ in one point: Build 22623.885 has the new features activated by default, but they are not in Build 22621.885.
What’s new in Build 22623.885?
According to Microsoft, Windows Studio Effects is a collection of features designed to “present users in their best light” during video calls. With Build 22623.885, the associated adjustments can be made directly from the quick settings. In addition, Microsoft has revised the energy recommendations, so that the energy efficiency of the PC can be improved.The full-screen view of the widgets
What’s new in Build 22621.885 and 22623.885?
Perhaps the most interesting innovation is a new way to enlarge the widget view. So far, this window has taken up about a third of the screen, but in future it will also be possible to display it as a full screen or enlarge it – if you make this setting once, the preferred size will also be saved. Now Microsoft must also manage to give the widgets a real purpose – but that’s another story.
There are of course also fixes and minor improvements (in build 22623.885):
Taskbar and system tray as well as file explorer
- Fixed some explorer.exe crashes related to the new taskbar and system tray.
- The pin/unpin icon is now displayed when you drag taskbar icons to any location on the taskbar, not just when hovering over the “Show hidden icons” button.
- Fixed an issue where certain chat apps (that support it) didn’t show new messages or open a preview when hovering over them in the taskbar.
- The “Show hidden icons” flyout in the taskbar should again resize on changes to avoid empty spaces and columns.
- Fixed an issue that could result in the “Show hidden icons” flyout not being connected to the taskbar in certain cases.
- Fixed an issue that caused the volume icon in the system tray to incorrectly show as muted.
- Fixed an issue where bringing up the context menu for items on the taskbar would not bring the context menu to the front and it would get stuck behind the taskbar.
- Work has been done to improve performance when deleting files via File Explorer (when emptying the Recycle Bin or using Shift + Delete) when deleting a large number of files at once.
- Build 22621.885 and 22623.885 fixed an issue affecting some modern applications. They couldn’t be opened anymore.
- We’re investigating reports that audio has stopped working for some Insiders in recent Beta Channel builds.
- The taskbar sometimes blinks when switching between desktop and tablet positions.
- The taskbar takes longer than expected to switch to the touch-optimized version when switching between desktop and tablet holding.
- When you use the gesture at the bottom right to show quick settings, the taskbar sometimes gets stuck in the expanded state instead of switching to the collapsed state.
