Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.100 Comes With Visual Improvements and Bug Fixes

After receiving a new build on July 22nd, Windows 11 Insider Preview is now receiving another update with version 22000.100 on the Beta channel. The new version has several bug fixes and some changes to the Windows 11 interface that you can check out right now.

The first new feature is that it is no longer necessary to use Windows Insider on the Dev Channel to test Windows 11 firsthand. The version is now available on the Beta Channel, which is a little more stable. However, only Dev users will receive Teams chats for now.

Another change in the new Windows 11 Insider Preview already seen in the previous version that has now been improved is the menu with hidden icons, which has a look that matches the rest of the system.

It is now also possible to access the Focus Assistant directly from the notifications area, which makes much more sense than going into Settings to enable this function.

The taskbar will now also have a bookmark in apps that have unread notifications. As you can see below, the icon will be slightly orange to emphasize that the app needs attention.

The notification area calendar will now automatically reduce its size when you click on another item, freeing up more space for other interactions. Speaking of visual effects, the Microsoft Store is also getting new animations.

In addition to these new features, the build also brings corrections to the notifications area, Windows Explorer, taskbar, the Settings app, and even Widgets. To check the complete list of changes in the new Windows 11 Insider Preview, go to the Windows Blog in the source below.
