Announcing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22509

This build includes a set of improvements that make browsing the web in Microsoft Edge with Narrator easier.  It also includes new layout options for Start, clock and date that will now show on secondary monitors, and Settings changes.  See the blog post for details.


  • The Start, Search, Task View, Widgets, and Chat icons in the Taskbar should no longer be unexpectedly large when the system scaling is set to 125%.
  • Pressing the Windows key plus (the number corresponding to an app icon’s position in the Taskbar) should cycle now through the app’s windows if you repeatedly press the number instead of stopping at the last window.
  • When Narrator focus is set to the Task View button and the Desktops flyout appears, Narrator will now let you know information about the Desktops.
  • Fixed an explorer.exe crash some Insiders were experiencing in recent flights related to updating badges in the Taskbar.
  • Handwriting should be working again now when the language is set to Chinese.
  • Mitigated an issue related to the mouse that was causing some Insiders to experience a bugcheck during hibernation sometimes in recent flights (making it appear as if the computer had rebooted).
  • Updated the Chinese Simplified IME candidates to be center aligned with the candidate window height has been customized.
  • Fixed touch keyboard invocation in PowerShell so it should work now.
  • Hovering your mouse back and forth between different desktops in Task View will no longer result in the displayed thumbnails and content area unexpectedly shrinking.
  • CompactOverlay should be working again in this build (aka the option that some apps use to create a small always on top window).
  • Fixed a race condition that was causing explorer.exe to crash sometimes when closing a snap group of 3 or more windows in Task View.
  • Removed the unexpected tilt animation when clicking down on a corner of the New Desktop button.
  • Made a tweak to address an underlying issue that was causing the context menu to animation down to the mouse instead of away from the mouse when right clicking a Desktop in Task View.
  • Fixed a high hitting DWM crash in recent flights.
  • Fixed some overlapping text for certain languages on the Installed Apps page in Settings.
  • Clicking the Uninstall button when using the Installed Apps page in grid view will now show a confirmation dialog.
  • Changed the new ms-settings:installed-apps URI to now be ms-settings:appsfeatures, to address scenarios where existing links expect the latter to lead to the list of installed apps, for example, when selecting the App Settings option after right clicking a UWP app in Start.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing some Insiders to see error 0x8007001f when trying to upgrade to recent Dev Channel builds.
  • Fixed an issue where some PCs are unable to install new builds, or other updates with an error code 0x80070002.
  • Fixed an issue causing some devices to roll back with error code 0xc1900101-0x4001c when installing new builds.
  • Did some work to help address an issue leading to the Wi-Fi connection getting lost after resuming from sleep.

I just discovered that it is a "known issue" in the last version update to Simple Machines Forum software.  Since it is considered a "minor issue", an update hasn't been issued for it.

Are you sure you're selecting "Forum Profile" from the Profile drop-down options located at the top of the forum?

That is spot on!  👍

Thanks, Eric. 

Another option with Windows 10 and Windows 11 is to use the keyboard shortcut Win+.  (Windows key + period).  Here's the list:

You're both welcome. 

Actually, I can't take full credit -- Eric suggested setting it up here as a "just in case" due to Scot's Announcement. It was barely started and kept it private until yesterday when Scot's was down.

I hope you all feel free to contribute news, updates, tips and tricks you think will be helpful to others, particularly since LzD has been a "Windows" forum and, throughout the years, I've referred people with Linux questions to Scot's.

Linux Help, News and Information / Major Geeks Linux Perspective

It would be interesting to get the opinion of our Linux guru's on the article published on Major Geeks today:  What Is Linux and How to Get Started?.

Another area of interest is MG's opinion on The 12 Best Linux Distributions for Windows Users.  The only distro I recognized from their list is Linux Mint.

The forum is back up and Eric was correct about the cause of the problem!
