Insider KB5017846 Windows 11 Insider Beta Build 22621.590 and 22622.590 - Sept. 1


  • Staff
UPDATE 9/12:

Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22621.590 and Build 22622.590 (KB5017846) to the Beta Channel.
  • Build 22622.590 = New features rolling out.
  • Build 22621.590 = New features off by default.
As a reminder, Insiders who landed in the group with new features turned off by default (Build 22621.xxxx) can check for updates and choose to install the update that will have features rolling out (Build 22622.xxx).

Fixes in Build 22622.590

[General]

  • We fixed the issue causing Control Panel to not launch from the Start menu, Search or if pinned to the taskbar in the previous flight.
  • As a result of feedback from Windows Insiders, we have disabled the ability to share a local file directly to OneDrive using the built-in Windows share window that first began rolling out to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel with Build 22622.436. We hope to bring this feature back in the future after further refinement of the experience. As we’ve mentioned previously, features we try out in the Dev or Beta Channels may not always ship.

[File Explorer]

  • Fixed an issue causing a small percentage of Insiders to experience repeated explorer.exe crashes after attempting to access certain folders on their systems in the previous Beta Channel build.
  • As a one-time change to help people find their folders with the navigation pane updates, if the default folders pinned to File Explorer’s navigation pane had been unpinned, they will be re-pinned after upgrading.
  • Fixed a recent issue where if File Explorer was open when you switched between light and dark mode, you could end up with some unreadable text / UI showing the wrong color.
  • Fixed an issue where the New / Sort / View / etc buttons in the command bar could become noticeably clipped vertically after increasing your text scaling in Accessibility Settings.
  • The search box background should no longer unexpectedly have a dark background sometimes when you’re using light mode.
  • If you move keyboard focus to the tab row (using F6), pressing the arrow keys to move keyboard focus within the row will now include setting focus to the close button within the tab.
  • If File Explorer is maximized and the taskbar is set to autohide, hovering your mouse on the bottom of the screen should now actually bring up the taskbar.
  • Fixed a memory leak which was happening when closing File Explorer windows.
  • Fixed a GDI objects leak when resizing the navigation pane in File Explorer, which could potentially lead to content in File Explorer not rendering correctly over time for Insiders who resized the navigation pane frequently.

[Taskbar]

  • The taskbar overflow flyout should now follow your accent colour like the rest of the taskbar does when “Show accent color on Start and taskbar” is enabled under Settings > Personalization > Colors.
  • The apps in the taskbar overflow flyout should now be in the correct order when using an Arabic or Hebrew display language.
  • When the taskbar is center aligned and full, the widgets entry point will now collapse to a shorter width to give you a little more room on the taskbar.
  • Fixed a couple of issues related to the taskbar overflow which could lead to sporadic explorer.exe crashes.

Fixes for BOTH Build 22621.590 & Build 22622.590

  • We fixed an issue that affects cldflt.sys. A bugcheck occurs when it is used with Microsoft OneDrive.
  • We fixed an issue that affects robocopy. Robocopy fails to set a file to the right modified time when using the /IS

Known issues

[General]

  • We’re looking into reports that audio stopped working for some Insiders in recent Beta Channel builds.

[File Explorer]

  • [NEW We’re investigating reports that a small set of Insiders with “launch folder windows in a separate process” are unable to open File Explorer after last week’s flight. This issue is unrelated to the issue with accessing certain folders in the same flight, which is fixed in this week’s flight.
  • [NEW] We’re working on the fix for an issue where command bar items like copy, paste, and empty recycle bin may unexpectedly not be enabled when they should be.

About the Beta Channel

The Beta Channel will be the place we preview experiences that are closer to what we will ship to our general customers. Because the Dev and Beta Channels represent parallel development paths from our engineers, there may be cases where features and experiences show up in the Beta Channel first. However, this does not mean every feature we try out in the Beta Channel will ship. We encourage Insiders to read this blog post that outlines the ways we’ll try things out with Insiders in both the Dev and Beta Channels.

This is not new to this beta but maybe Windows 11 in general.
The CPU load when comparing external apps like AIDA64, HWInfo and Task Manager doesn't match.
I've tried to see if enabling/disabling c-states/hyper-threading etc makes a difference but it doesn't.
Is this a known issue?
Here's a more detailed explanation if if your curious about why. Because dynamically-adjustable processors automatically enter an enhanced mode when under load, Task Manager’s CPU % for a process that is actively executing code will generally be significantly larger than its processor time. But because that number is placed on a scale that is capped at 100%, Task Manager makes it appear that the process is taking up more of the system’s computing capacity than it actually is. For a while, Task Manager itself would report overall CPU usage greater than 100%. Because that’s counterintuitive even to people who understand the concept of “utility,” Task Manager now caps the numbers it reports at 100%. That ends up further distorting what it reports.

Windows 11 Pro 22H2 Beta Build 22623.1250 Feature Pack 22639
I'm not getting the flashing white, either, and I'm on dark theme. It might just be specific to some system
I'm using Dark Theme and still getting the white flash on opening the File Explorer and on clicking the + "add new tab" button.

Could be. I'm happy with my Ryzen 7 System but maybe the other reports of flashing are based on AMD. I'll have a look later.

My PC has an Intel 10100 CPU and dedicated Nvidia graphics GT1030 and I get the flash. Wife's PC also has Intel 10100 CPU but dedicated graphics card GT710. No flash on hers. Both are on 22H2 Beta at .590.

I also have a second screen which uses the built-in Intel graphics. That also sees the flash if I use explorer there.

I also get the flash when I start Edge for the first time.

For those with the white flash with dark theme, have any of you tried doing a video capture and does it show up there?

Intel CPU with dedicated Nvidia graphics GTX 860M. Having white flashes when opening File explorer, Edge browser, Google Chrome, etc...

You can see it on video.

Same problem too, it seems to occur with file explorer, it happens when a new window is opened while when clicking + to open a new tab, it will happen randomly which I think is every 4th time I click on the + and if I went to another tab and go back to the tab that had the flash, it will still flash. If you click on minimize on the File Explorer Window and then click on the File Explorer on the task bar to restore the window, it will still flash. It appears to happen with everything that uses tabs as with Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, it happens only when a new window is opened but not when clicking on + to add a new tab.

I just opened FE and for a millisecond saw a white flash before it was fully launched. Glad I have a fast system.

My system consistently flashes File Explorer on open and on using the + for a new Tab. Neither minimising then resuming File Explorer nor changing tabs exhibits Flashes.

    This replaced my Linux Notebook. I've used Windows since 3.1, tried various Linux distros but Windows wins for me.

For me, the + for new tab only happens when it feels like it... Sometimes on every 3rd consecutive click of + and sometimes, it doesn't do it even if I clicked + consecutively for 10 times. The only one that is consistent is when I either open a new window or if I minimize and restore as seen in the video. It also happens when I minimize and restore the window in Google Chrome, Microsoft EDGE and Mozilla Firefox. Seems to be related to anything that uses tabs.
