Option One is not available on my Win 11 Pro 22000.527 PC. "Show me the Windows welcome experience after updates and occasionally when I sign in to highlight what’s new and suggested" is not there. The other two notification options on Offer suggestions and Get tips are still present.
I wonder if Microsoft has also negated the Registry Tweak? Anybody had recent experience?

Interesting. I could have sworn it was there before in the public builds.

It is currently in the Insider build 22563.
