Announcing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.168

Quote
IMPORTANT REMINDER: If you are in the Dev Channel, now would be the right time to consider switching to the Beta Channel if you want to stay on more stabilized builds of Windows 11. For those of you who are new to the Windows Insider Program and flighting of OS updates – check out this article for how flighting works. (We use the term “flighting” for the activity of releasing new OS updates to Insiders.)
Fixes
  • Search:
    • We’ve addressed an underlying issue in the last couple flights for pen enabled devices that was resulting in Search getting into a state where it wasn’t possible to launch apps from the results.
  • Settings:
    • We fixed an issue where typing certain phrases into the search box in Settings were crashing Settings sometimes.
  • Widgets:
    • When using the Family widget, you should no longer unexpectedly see a message saying ‘connect a device to see screen time activity’ despite there being available activity to display.
  • Chat from Microsoft Teams:
    • We fixed the issue where sometimes videos would freeze or display a black image during video calls.
    • We also fixed the issue where if you switched between calls, the previous call is not automatically put on hold, so audio and video streams continue with both calls.

Announcing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22449

Quote
You may notice that this build number is higher than the Windows 11 preview builds you’ve been receiving. That’s because we’re moving the Dev Channel back to receiving builds from our active development branch (RS_PRERELEASE). This means the builds released to the Dev Channel no longer match the Windows 11 experience that will be released to customers on October 5th.

See the blog post for the very long list of fixes.

  • Fixed an issue that was causing Narrator to not be able to focus on the headers in Start sometimes with touch.
  • Mitigated an issue where when a large number of apps were installed, the Start menu might get stuck with no app icons showing (only app name) after a DPI change. This change is also believed to help improve Start launch reliability on secondary monitors in mixed DPI scenarios.

  • The Taskbar previews text will now follow the Accessibility setting to increase text size.
  • Adjusted the notification count badge for notification center to fix an issue where some of the numbers weren’t centered in the circle.

  • Mitigated an issue that could cause File Explorer to hang when doing a search.
  • Pressing F1 in File Explorer will now open a search for Windows 11 help and not Windows 10.
  • Made a change to address an issue where items under View, Sort by, and Group by submenus in the context menu weren’t displaying a mark to show they were selected.
[Input]
  • Fixed an issue resulting in the mouse pointer position in WDAG being incorrect when the monitor was in portrait mode.
  • Text predictions (both for the touch keyboard, and hardware keyboard) should be working again now in this flight for English and certain other languages where it was broken.
  • Addressed an issue when using the previous version of the Korean IME where when typing quickly in certain apps the Shift Key Up event wouldn’t be received by the app.
  • Fixed an issue that was making the touch keyboard key borders look blurry in certain cases.
  • Mitigated an issue where the touch keyboard would crash in certain cases when switching dock mode while the voice typing UI was visible.

  • Addressed an issue where the snap layouts flyout would start flashing when invoked in certain places on the screen.
  • Move To option when right clicking a window thumbnail in Task View is now aligned with the other context menu entries.
[Windows Sandbox]
  • Windows Sandbox should now launch in this build. In previous Dev Channel builds, Windows Sandbox would not launch in some circumstances.

  • We have fixed the issue causing both WSL2 and Hyper-V to not work on ARM64 PCs such as the Surface Pro X in previous Dev Channel builds.
[Other]
  • Fixed an issue that caused some PCs to bug check with DRIVER_PNP_WATCHDOG error when attempting to update to a recent build.
  • Fixed an issue that caused some Surface Pro X’s to bug check with a WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR.
  • Fixed an issue where the Autorun registry entry for Command Prompt would not work if /k was used.
  • Did some work to address an issue where not being able to parse a certain firewall rule would result in all rules following that one not being migrated on upgrade.
  • Addressed an issue where the Quick Assist window could be small and not possible to resize.
  • Fixed an issue for some users where if the sign in button in Quick Assist was clicked, it would open a blank browser window and they wouldn’t be able to proceed to sign in.
  • Mitigated an issue with certain menus / context menus that was causing a visual glitch with the shadow on first launch.
  • Mitigated a race condition that was causing certain PCs to sometimes bugcheck with INTERNAL_POWER_ERROR when resuming from hibernation.
  • Fixed an issue that was making some PCs unable to progress past the boot screen when upgrading to 224xx builds with certain SSDs attached.
