Insider KB5014650 Windows 11 22H2 Insider Dev and Beta Build 22616.100 (ni_release) - May 10


  • Staff
UPDATE 5/11:

UPDATE 5/10: We are starting to roll out Cumulative Update Build 22616.100 (KB5014650). This update does not include anything new and is designed to test our servicing pipeline for builds in the Dev and Beta Channels.

Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22616 to the Dev and Beta Channels.

TL;DR

  • We have another build for Windows Insiders that includes a few changes and fixes (including a fix for the “Show hidden icons” flyout in the system tray not appearing for some Windows Insiders).
  • Windows Insiders who like to game on their PCs with an Xbox Controller on the latest Insider Preview builds in the Dev and Beta Channels can try out the new controller bar feature – see this blog post for details.

REMINDER: Window for switching from Dev Channel to the Beta Channel is closing soon!

Now that the Dev and Beta Channels are receiving the same builds, the window is still open (but closing soon!) for you to switch channels following these simple steps:
  1. Open Settings > Windows Update > Windows Insider Program.
  2. Select Choose your Insider settings
  3. Select Beta Channel.
  4. The next time you receive an update, it will be for your new channel.

IMPORTANT: This window will close once we release builds with higher build numbers to the Dev Channel. If your device stays on the Dev Channel and receives a build that is a higher build number than what is in the Beta Channel, you will have to do a clean installation of the released version of Windows 11 on your device to switch to the Beta Channel.

No action is required if you want to continue receiving the Windows 11 Insider Preview Builds in the Dev Channel.

Changes and Improvements

[General]
  • [REMINDER] The build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop is no longer present in this build. This doesn’t mean we’re done, and the watermark will return to Insiders in a future build.

[Taskbar]

  • As a result of feedback from Windows Insiders, we have decided to disable the changes to the system tray introduced in Build 22581 for now. The system tray and specifically the “Show hidden icons” flyout will now function the same way it did with the original release of Windows 11, including the ability to rearrange icons in the flyout. We hope to bring these changes back in the future after further refinement of the experience by addressing some of the feedback we have received. As we’ve mentioned previously, features we try out in the Dev or Beta Channels may not always ship.

[Other]

  • Previously, we shared new requirements for internet and MSA on the Windows 11 Pro edition. Today, Windows Insiders on Windows 11 Pro edition will now require MSA and internet connectivity during the initial device setup (OOBE) only when setting up for personal use. If you choose to setup device for Work or School, there is no change, and it will work the same way as before.

Fixes

[General]

  • We fixed an issue where performance and reliability of explorer.exe could degrade over time, eventually resulting in a bugcheck, in the recent Insider Preview builds.

[Taskbar]

  • We fixed the issue causing the “Show hidden icons” flyout in the system tray to disappear completely for some Insiders, even though it shows as “on” under Settings > Personalization > Taskbar and “Other system tray icons”.

[Input]

  • Fixed an issue which was leading to some apps crashing when pressing the half-width/full-width key while using the Japanese IME.

[Widgets]

  • Fixed an issue where if you tried to open the widgets board using a gesture from the side of the screen, you would see the widgets board open and then immediately close.
  • Fixed an issue where users were unable to use the swipe functionality to reliably invoke Widgets.

[Settings]

  • Fixed an issue that could cause Quick Settings to crash when projecting to certain wireless devices.

[Windowing]

  • Addressed an issue where using the 3-finger on-screen touch gesture for minimizing could cause animations to stop working across the system.
  • Fixed an issue impacting DWM reliability in recent flights.
  • Fixed an issue which was causing some apps like Settings to open blank if they were re-opened an upgrade or reboot.

[Task Manager]

  • We fixed an issue that was causing the process list to fluctuate between Apps & Background groups when clicking on Efficiency mode from the command bar

[Windows Sandbox]

  • Fixed an underlying issue which could cause some text in Windows Sandbox to appear as black boxes in certain cases.

[Other]

  • Fixed an issue leading to Windows Update notifications showing they were sent from “Windows.SystemToast.WindowsUpdate.MoNotification” instead of “Windows Update”.

Known issues

[Live captions]

  • Certain apps in full screen (e.g., video players) prevent live captions from being visible.
  • Certain apps positioned near the top of the screen and closed before live captions is run will re-launch behind the live captions window positioned at top. Use the system menu (ALT + Spacebar) while the app has focus to move the app’s window further down.

For developers

You can download the latest Windows Insider SDK at aka.ms/windowsinsidersdk.

SDK NuGet packages are now also flighting at NuGet Gallery | WindowsSDK which include:
These NuGet packages provide more granular access to the SDK and better integrate in CI/CD pipelines.

About the Dev & Beta Channels

As a reminder, we are evolving the way we develop and release to Insiders with the Dev and Beta Channels now representing parallel development paths from our engineers. The Dev Channel will be a place where we will try out different concepts, incubate new ideas, and work on long lead items that may not get released to general customers. The Beta Channel will be the place we preview experiences that are closer to what we will ship to our general customers. However, this does not mean every feature we try out in the Beta Channel will ship. We encourage Insiders to read this blog post from last month that outlines the ways we’ll try things out with Insiders in the Dev and Beta Channels.

These aren’t always stable builds, and sometimes you will see issues that block key activities or require workarounds. It is important to make sure you read the known issues listed in our blog posts as we document many of these issues with each flight.

The desktop watermark you see at the lower right corner of your desktop is normal for these pre-release builds.

Windows 11 Latest Dev Build
I really do not like the new Phishing protection aka Web Threat Defense Service. It killed my internet, every single webpage was opening for about 30 secs with no firewall in place. Once disabled, everything is instantaneous. Still it could be an useful feature for some.
I have it on, no issues with speed or anything for me.

So I just upgraded my W11 Beta VHD to latest build (you can now upgaded native booting vhds), and it mangled my multi boot menu

It got rid of entry Windows 11 Beta, created a new onejust called Windows 11, made that default and left a boot entry called Windows Rollback.

It is supposed to remove the rollback entry once successfully installed.

I tidied that up with Easybcd and then upgraded Windows 11 Dev vhd, and the same happened (deleting Windows 11 Dev entry).

Had to run Easybcd to tidy up again.

With these recent builds, 1 step forwards, 1 step back!

It's been like that for a while now.

You don't need easybcd -- just use bcdedit from command line - either from within windows itself or from command line from Windows install medium (-- repair windows->command line) or from within Macrium - command line if you created the stand alone restore version with PE rather than RE.

If you need to re-install / update the bootloader simply run bcdboot.

Cheers

It got rid of entry Windows 11 Beta, created a new onejust called Windows 11, made that default and left a boot entry called Windows Rollback.
My multi-boot menu has three entries, Windows 11 Beta (as a .vhdx native boot, set as default), Windows 10 (on a normal partition), and Macrium Reflect (part of the Win10 install).

Perhaps because I already had the vhdx set as the default I have had nothing 'mangled' apart from it renaming my Windows 11 Beta' to just 'Windows 11' (which I then change back using bcdedit). This was my third upgrade of this native boot .vhdx, and it has been the same experience each time.

Sure I can use command line but easybcd is quicker to reorder etc.

Yeah I think yiu have nailed it.

Howeve in my case, the vhds are not default, so it ends up reordering entries.

It only takes a couple of minutes to reorder using easybcd.

It seemed to make sense that, as it needed to restart to complete the upgrade, then it should be the default.

Next time a vhd needs an upgrade you could try changing it to be the default until the upgrade has completed, then set the default back to your preferred OS.

It seemed to make sense that, as it needed to restart to complete the upgrade, then it should be the default.

Next time a vhd needs an upgrade you could try changing it to be the default until the upgrade has completed, then set the default back to your preferred OS.
No need to make it default as it does that.

The problem is if the upgrade fails, you can end up with a corrupted bcd as well, and sometimes you cannot get to point to run another OS.

I always have a Macrium Reflect usb drive if bcd gets truly mangled to rebuild bcd for host boot entry. Unfortunately I found if you simply restore a backup of efi partition, the vhd entry for the upgraded vhd often falls over, and you have to delete it and recreate entry.

Surely, it cannot be that difficult to restore default boot drive after upgrade is finished - I never want to change my default drive.

As an aside, for very strange reasons if I use bcdboot command on the Dev or Beta commands, it upsets something, and if I boot from a Macrium Reflect boot entry, it only appears in 800x600 low res, despite have set low res setting in Reflect. However, if I use easybcd, I do not get that issue. It is not just Reflect - it is any winpe boot drive (like one created by Kyhi's XPE tool).

This issue only started when the Insider version changed the initial booting circling dots to a circling snake (as I call it).

No need to make it default as it does that.

The problem is if the upgrade fails, you can end up with a corrupted bcd as well, and sometimes you cannot get to point to run another OS.

I always have a Macrium Reflect usb drive if bcd gets truly mangled to rebuild bcd for host boot entry. Unfortunately I found if you simply restore a backup of efi partition, the vhd entry for the upgraded vhd often falls over, and you have to delete it and recreate entry.

Surely, it cannot be that difficult to restore default boot drive after upgrade is finished - I never want to change my default drive.

As an aside, for very strange reasons if I use bcdboot command on the Dev or Beta commands, it upsets something, and if I boot from a Macrium Reflect boot entry, it only appears in 800x600 low res, despite have set low res setting in Reflect. However, if I use easybcd, I do not get that issue. It is not just Reflect - it is any winpe boot drive (like one created by Kyhi's XPE tool).

This issue only started when the Insider version changed the initial booting circling dots to a circling snake (as I call it).
Good idea -- but also another easier one probably is to create a winpe bootable USB drive -- works a treat - you get booted straight into "Admin Command mode" and you can do all sorts of things,

To access for example VHDX drives (or VHD) simply run diskpart, select vdisk file=<full path to file name>, attach vdisk, list disk / list vol , assign letter = V (or whatever). Now you can muck around with it to your hearts content.


BTW installing W11 from scratch via DISM /Apply-Image I found a lot of "Unknown devices" but doing "update driver" from within the booted up copy and selected from the W10 vdisk folder e:\windows\system32 and clicking on include subfiolders all my unknown devices were OK. (E was the disk letter of the W10 vdisk).

For running BCDBOOT from a new windows install you need to ensure that the correct EFI partition is available (You can in Diskpart on list vol, select the vol (it's probably your one marked "Hidden" and depending on the size - probably 100Mb) -- then assign letter=S then simply run the bootmanager from the new windows directory with parameters /s S: /f UEFI

I prefer if running multiple versions of Windows from VHDX drives is to have a single drive with ONE efi partition, and all the other windows installs as VHDX files on that drive, all the VHDX files simply a bog standard NTFS partition and then use dism /apply-image to the appropriate vhdx file. If you want multiple "Physical" windows installs on a single disk --seems to me the easiest way to do it.

On multiple disks then OK other methods needed.

BCDEDIT also is good from the winpe boot -- you can rename / re-order / delete boot entries.

"Circling Snake" boots W10 also without issue on my Multi boot Windows disk. The whoile kybosh works also on an external USB drive for those wanting to make Windows to Go installs without needing any 3rd party programs or fancy options.

(BTW also works for Windows HOME -- no HYPER-V or VM compoments need to be selected - just "Bog standard Windows").

Cheers

If I remember, it was me who first brought native boot vhds to your attention LOL.

All I have is an annoying but minor glitch that takes less than 30 seconds to sort with easybcd.

Hey it has a nice new feature on optional icon display in taskbar. You can drag and drop icons to main task bar and back. This is perfect functionality and cannot be improved. This is how it should always have been.

Oh wait a minute :think: - it was always like this before MS tried to "improve" it - WALOB!
YES! It is so nice, that this "little" possibillity is back 😊

Good morning,
last night I updated windows 11 to version 22h2 build 22616.1 but you no longer hear the audio with the speakers and headphones, and with the professional equipment to record my songs.
Drivers, speakers and more are 100% working and a few minutes before the update everything was fine.
Could anyone help me? Without audio I cannot work.
Thanks

Go to device manager - Sound, video and game controllers - your audio card (mine is Realtek) then right click and select update driver. Select Browse my computer for drivers, then Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer. Select your sound card then next. Reboot.
