On December 16, Microsoft released an update to the operating system version number of Build 22523 for Insider members of the Dev channel. What's even more exciting is that it is also open to download ISO images, which is very user-friendly to freshly installed users.

Changes and improvements

Microsoft has launched snapshot groups in ALT + TAB and task view, just like you hover the mouse on the taskbar to open the application, you can see them in all insiders in the development channel.

When File Explorer is opened to this computer, you can now add media server and (if applicable) delete media server options when you click "..." in the command bar.

As part of our ongoing efforts to bring settings from the control panel to the settings application: links to programs and functions in the control panel will now open to Settings> Applications> Installed Applications. Edit: In other words, link to the page to uninstall or change the program on your PC. "Uninstall Updates" will be moved from the "Control Panel" to a new page in "Settings"> "Windows Update"> "Update History".


[Mission Board]

Fixed an issue where the shell became unresponsive on an ARM64 PC.

The battery icon tooltip should no longer accidentally display percentages higher than 100.

When opening multiple applications, the icons of these applications should no longer overlap the date and time on the display.


[File Manager]

Some work has been done to solve the problem that sometimes causes the keyboard focus to be lost after pressing Enter when renaming a OneDrive file using F2.


[Spotlight Collection]

With spotlight collection enabled, your first picture (after Whitehaven Beach) should now be updated faster.

Added icons to Spotlight right-click menu items.



Improve the reliability of calling voice input.

Fixed an issue where the border of our text input experience (voice input, emoji panel, etc.) could not be drawn correctly when the comparison theme was enabled.

If you start and then immediately close the brush menu process before starting, alleviate intermittent crashes.


[Small tools]

We fixed an issue that caused the link to not open normally when hovering to open the widget board.


[Set up]

When the setting window becomes smaller, the setting content should no longer be cut off from one side of the window.

Settings should no longer occasionally crash when opening the combo box, which will affect certain settings, such as the ability to set custom click actions for the brush.

Solved the problem that the "add device" option in the bluetooth device crashed silently when trying to connect a new bluetooth device.

Many keywords have been added to make the voice access feature appear in the settings search results.



Fixed an issue that caused the ARM64 PC to encounter an error check that referenced a memory management error in the previous version.

Fixed a bug that caused the screen to flicker repeatedly when using some software.

Mitigated the problem that caused some applications to hang when Narrator was running.

Added some missing information when checking the details in the properties of narratorquickstart.exe.

Solved the problem of users not responding to UIA events. For example, notifications, real-time areas, or text events.


Note: Some fixes in the Insider Preview version from the active development branch may enter the service update of the released version of Windows 11, which will be fully available on October 5.

Known issues


You may not be able to log in to some applications, such as the feedback center. Restarting your PC should solve the problem.

We are investigating reports that some insiders have seen the error 0x8007012a in the latest version.



Sometimes, users will not be able to view and enter text from the start bar or task bar. If you encounter this problem, press WIN + R on your keyboard to launch the Run dialog box, and then close it.


[Mission Board]

The taskbar sometimes flickers when switching input methods.

The network icon in the taskbar is sometimes lost when it should be there. If you encounter this situation, please try to restart explorer.exe using Task Manager.

If you connect multiple monitors to the computer and click the date and time on the taskbar of the main monitor, it will crash explorer.exe



After clicking the search icon on the taskbar, the search panel may not be opened. If this happens, start "Windows Explorer" again and then open the search panel.


[Set up]

When viewing the list of available Wi-Fi networks, the signal strength indicator does not reflect the correct signal strength.

Settings may crash when going to HDR.

A blank entry will appear under Bluetooth and devices.


[Spotlight Collection]

The spotlight collection will not migrate the current image when you are upgrading, so the upgraded desktop background may be black.


[Small tools]

Changing the taskbar alignment may cause widget buttons to disappear from the taskbar.

When hovering the entry point over the secondary monitor, the widget board may not have the correct resolution.

The widget board may be temporarily blank.

When the computer is connected to multiple monitors, the widget content on the taskbar may not be synchronized in time.


[Voice access]

The creation commands of "select that" or "delete that" may not work in Windows applications.

Some punctuation marks and symbols (such as the @ symbol) are not accurately recognized.
