Windows 11 is projected to roll out for the first devices in approximately per month, so in the meantime, Microsoft keeps refining the operating system with the aid of preview builds shipped included in the Windows Insider program.
A couple of hours ago, for example, the Redmond-based software giant rolled out a brand new Windows 11 build for insiders in the Beta channel, and unsurprisingly, there’s a lot of fixes inside.
Windows 11 build 22000.176 is mainly centered on polishing the overall knowledge about the operating system, though Microsoft is also highlighting how users can choose what icons they want to see around the taskbar – this is a feature already obtainable in Windows 11 preview builds, but Microsoft most likely wanted to make sure everyone knows exactly how to complete the whole thing.
“People want to get closer to whatever they love, faster. For this reason commonly used experiences like Search, Task View, Widgets and Chat are pinned towards the Taskbar in Windows 11. To manage which of those icons are pinned to the Taskbar in one location, simply right-click around the Taskbar and choose “Taskbar settings” to open the Taskbar Settings page and choose which system icon to cover. If you hid these system icons previously and wish to unhide them – this can be done via the Taskbar Settings page,” Microsoft explains.
More fixes and enhancements
This build also includes general fixes, including for errors experienced when trying to consider photos with USB cameras, as well as Bluetooth LE devices improvements.
There are obviously several known issues, and you may check them all in the box following the jump, and hopefully, Microsoft continues to have enough time to resolve all of them by the time the rollout to production devices would start in the first days of October.
