Windows 11 Build 22621.2213: A Sneak Peek Into the Latest Features and Improvements

Windows 11 Build 22621.2213, the latest update from the Windows Insider Program Team, is now available to Insiders in the Release Preview Channel. This new build introduces a host of exciting features and improvements that are sure to intrigue tech enthusiasts.

What’s New in the Update?

One of the most notable additions in this update is the new functionality that affects app defaults. This feature provides a more principled approach to app pinning and app defaults in Windows.

Another exciting feature is the new hover behavior added to the search box gleam. Now, when you hover over it, the search flyout box appears, offering a more interactive search experience.

Furthermore, this release introduces a new policy called “Enable optional updates.” This policy allows administrators to configure the monthly, optional cumulative updates for commercial devices and control Feature Rollouts (CFR).

Major Updates

Several issues have been addressed in this update. One of them is an issue affecting the Group Policy Service, which no longer waits for the default 30 seconds for the network to be available. This change ensures policies are processed correctly.

Also, an issue affecting disk partitions has been resolved. Previously, the system might stop working after deleting a disk partition and adding the space from the deleted partition to an existing BitLocker partition.

Moreover, the update has improved the reliability of the Search app and fixed an issue where the TAB key required additional actions to browse search results.
