Windows 11 Start Menu and Taskbar Fixes in the Latest Preview Build

Microsoft has released a brand new Windows 11 preview build to users in the Dev channel, and naturally, the beginning menu and also the taskbar, both massively overhauled within this operating-system, getting their very own set of improvements.

Windows 11 build 22478 therefore includes a fix for the Start menu that stops the laptop keyboard focus from no more getting lost should you press ESC after opening the consumer profile flyout.

At the same time, Microsoft says it’s updated the prompt text when pinning UWP app content to Start, using the new message just reading “Do you want to pin this to begin?”.

As far as the taskbar is concerned, the software giant says it’s finally addressed the bug that caused an accident of explorer.exe when left and right-clicking the taskbar at the same time.

Furthermore, Microsoft says it has resolved the issues using the Notification Center that caused this feature to freeze and then to prevent launching completely.

Known issues affected the beginning menu and also the taskbar

There are other fixes for that taskbar within this preview build.

“The plus icon for adding a brand new Desktop will now display properly when hovering within the Task View icon within the Taskbar when utilizing Arabic and Hebrew languages. After bringing up an app’s jump list in the Taskbar, right clicking on the app name should now show the right icon for Pin to begin (a pin icon),” Microsoft says.

The bad news is both taskbar and also the Start menu come with more known issues, so for example, quite a few users might be not able to enter text when using search. At the same time, the taskbar could end up exhibiting a flickering effect when switching input methods, while the tooltips will finish in an entirely unexpected location after hovering the taskbar corner.
