Fixed in Build 22623.1028

[Taskbar & System Tray]
- Fixed an issue where, with the system tray design updates, auto-hiding the taskbar would stop working after you had interacted with the hidden icons fly-out.
- Made a small refinement for tablet-optimized taskbar users to make it a bit easier to expand the taskbar without invoking the Start menu.
- Fixed an issue that could lead to the taskbar jump lists and preview thumbnails not appearing in the correct position for Insiders with 2-in-1 PCs.
- Improved the transition animation when switching between collapsed and expanded views of the tablet-optimized taskbar.
- The tablet-optimized taskbar should collapse more reliably now after launching an app from the Start menu.

- Updated the battery icon’s tooltip to let you know if your device is charging slowly.
