Changes and Improvements in Windows 11 Build 22538

  • The updated entry point for Widgets with weather on the taskbar first introduced with Build 22518 should now be available to all Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel.
  • In ALT + TAB, Task view, and Snap assist, the focus rectangle that shows what is selected will now use your chosen accent color on your PC.
  • Our updated IMEs and touch keyboard designs will now show on the Lock screen and where you enter your account information such as username and password. This change is currently rolling out to a subset of Windows Insiders at first and we’ll expand over time based on feedback.
  • We are beginning to roll out the ability for voice typing to download Speech Packs from the Microsoft Store for device-based speech recognition that provides a better performance of transcription.
  • We’re experimenting with improving the discoverability of certain input features in various areas across the OS.
  • For those who need it, you can access ncpa.cpl directly again.
  • We have added HTTPS boot for Hyper-V Generation 2 VMs. The feature is enabled by default.
  • For PCs that support it, display calibration is now directly available under Settings > Display > HDR instead of having to open a separate Settings page.

 

 

Fixes in Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22538

[General]

  • Pressing the hardware buttons for volume up/down should no longer cause explorer.exe to crash for some Insiders.
  • We believe that the issue causing some Insiders to see text in Settings and other places mixed up in the previous flight should no longer repro in this build.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing Narrator to crash in text boxes when using scan mode.
  • Mitigated an issue where for some PCs, after resuming from sleep or hibernate, video playback would resume instantly but the audio could take 10 seconds to start playing.

[File Explorer]

  • Folders named Advanced should no longer unexpectedly open the Advanced Sharing Settings page in Settings.

[Search]

  • We’ve done some work to address an issue wherein typing when using Search from Start or after clicking the Search icon Taskbar would not actually start a Search, as no text was input. If you continue to experience this issue after upgrading, please file a new piece of feedback under Desktop Environment > Search in Feedback Hub.

[Taskbar]

  • Taskbar’s date and time in the long format should no longer cut off on secondary monitors.
