Fixes in KB5018503 Windows 11 Builds 22621.741 and 22623.741

[Tablet-optimized taskbar]

NOTE: These fixes will only show if the tablet-optimized taskbar is enabled on your device. The tablet-optimized taskbar is still rolling out to Windows Insiders and is not yet available for everyone.

  • We fixed the issue causing the taskbar to sometimes collapse when it should be expanded if there are no running windows on the desktop.
  • We fixed an issue that would occur when using the left or right edge gestures, resulting in the Widgets or Notification Center (respectively) to overlap with or look truncated by the taskbar.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the tablet-optimized taskbar to crash explorer.exe if you entered the overflow fly-out.

[System Tray Updates]

NOTE: These fixes will only show if the tablet-optimized taskbar with System Tray updates is enabled on your device. Tablet-optimized taskbar and System Tray are still rolling out to Windows Insiders and are not yet available for everyone.

  • Fixed an issue so that Quick Settings items can now be rearranged with touch again.

Fixes for BOTH Build 22621.741 & Build 22623.741

  • We fixed an issue that affects the Server Manager. It might reset the wrong disk when several disks have the same Unique ID.
  • We fixed localization issues for some setup files. These issues might stop you from creating installation media for non-English languages.

Known issues

[General]

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

[Tablet-optimized taskbar]

  • The taskbar sometimes flashes when transitioning between desktop posture and tablet posture.
  • The taskbar takes longer than expected to transition to the touch-optimized version when switching between desktop posture and tablet posture.
  • When using the bottom right edge gesture to see Quick Settings, the taskbar sometimes stays stuck in the expanded state, instead of dismissing to a collapsed state.
