Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22621.2271 and 22631.2271 Unveiled

Exciting news for Windows Insiders! The release of Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22621.2271 and Build 22631.2271 (KB5030316) to the Beta Channel is here. This update brings new features and improvements, enhancing the user experience.

What’s New?

Build 22631.2271 introduces new features, while Build 22621.2271 keeps new features off by default. Insiders previously on Build 22624 will automatically transition to Build 22631 via an enablement package.

“The enablement package artificially increments the build number for the update with new features getting rolled out and turned on to make it easier to differentiate from devices with the update with features off by default.”

This approach is exclusive to the Beta Channel and does not indicate plans for final feature rollouts.

Major Updates and Improvements

Build 22631.2271 brings several changes and improvements. However, the Windows Ink improvements introduced with Build 22631.2050, which allowed inking directly onto edit fields, are temporarily disabled to fix bugs impacting the usability of this experience.

Fixes in Build 22631.2271

Several fixes have been made in this build, particularly in File Explorer, Windows Copilot, Input, Settings, Dev Drive, Task Manager, HDR Wallpaper, and others. These fixes aim to enhance stability, performance, and user experience.

“Made a few more fixes to help improve File Explorer launch performance, including fixing a leak which would impact performance over time.”

Microsoft is committed to providing a smooth and efficient user experience, and these updates reflect that commitment.

Microsoft Store Update

Stay tuned for more updates on the Microsoft Store. The tech giant is continuously working on improving and expanding its services to provide the best for its users. The future of Windows 11 looks promising!
