Microsoft releases Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22621.575 and 22622.575

Microsoft have released new builds of Windows 11 for Windows Insiders on the beta channel. Once again there are two builds, 22621.575 has the features switched off and 22622.575 which has the features available.

For 22622.575 there is a feature that hit the dev channel last week:

Middle clicking a folder in the navigation pane of File Explorer will now open it in a new tab, like clicking a folder in the body of File Explorer already does.

Here are the fixes to 22622.575:

[File Explorer]

  • Fixed an issue where launching File Explorer in certain ways when using dark mode (for example, from the command line) was showing the body of File Explorer unexpectedly in light mode.
  • Fixed an issue where the left/right arrows in File Explorer were in light mode when you were using dark mode, causing them to not have enough contrast to show when they were enabled.
  • Fixed an issue causing UI issues in File Explorer when using F11 to put File Explorer in full screen mode.
  • Fixed an issue where if you drag and drop a folder into the navigation pane was sometimes unexpectedly putting the folder at the bottom of the list rather than where you’d dropped it.
  • Fixed an issue where the dividers in the navigation pane were overlapping / drawing too close to text sometimes.
  • Fixed an issue where the context menu when right clicking on a tab wasn’t being translated.

[Taskbar]

  • Fixed an issue where the taskbar overflow flyout wasn’t showing up on the correct monitor.

[Open With]

  • Fixed an issue where Narrator wasn’t reading out the “New” text next to the app name in the Open With dialog.

[Suggested Actions]

  • Improved date / time recognition for existing supported markets (U.S., Canada, and Mexico).

  • We fixed an issue that causes the App-V client service to leak memory when you delete App-V registry nodes.
