This is not about an update. It's about the display of updates. I may be posting in the wrong sub-forum.

I can copy data from the "2022-02 Cumulative Update Preview" line (and just pasted it here).
I cannot copy from the "2022-03 Cumulative Update for Windows 11" line.

I'm sure I could do that in Win10 because I would do it. I would copy the KB number and research it to see what I was getting into by installing. Now in Win11 I have to count on my correctly reading and typing the KB number. A minor issue, to be sure, but irritating. What is Microsoft afraid of that it needs to protect that data from copying?

I don't think it was deliberate. That KB5011563 update is an optional preview update, which is why it is in a separate box of its own. I think MS just forgot to enable text copying from this 'optional' box. The details you were looking for are here:
