Windows 11 KB5011563 is finally starting to roll out to users outside of beta channel. This optional update brings the build number to 22000.593, which includes all the changes introduced a few weeks ago for insiders using Windows 11 Build 22000.588.

The biggest change in this update has to do with notifications. Now, Windows 11 can display up to three high-priority notifications at once, in addition to one standard notification.

Highlights in Windows 11 KB5011563

  • Up to three high-priority toast notifications can be displayed at the same time. This feature is available for applications that use Windows notifications in the operating system to send call, reminder, or alert notifications. As a result, up to four toast notifications may appear at the same time - three high-priority notifications and one normal-priority notification.
  • Updated an issue that could cause Microsoft OneDrive files to lose focus after renaming them and pressing Enter. When a file loses focus, you must select it again to use it.
  • Return to the appropriate settings page when you search for word widgets.

System requirements not met watermark on desktop

In a recent update, Microsoft is reiterating the importance of Windows 11 hardware requirements (such as TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot). Insiders with unsupported devices should have noticed the "System requirements not met" watermark on the desktop in previous Build 22000.588, and the change has made its way into production with Windows 11 Build 22000.593.

The watermark will have no real impact on PC performance or operation, but it will always appear in the bottom right corner of the desktop, which may be annoying to you. If so, you can try to remove the system requirements not met watermark.
