Fixed in Windows 11 Build 22572

General

  • Fixed an issue for Enterprise edition devices going through the setup experience (OOBE) where the network add screen was skipped on the first attempt.
  • Addressed an issue that was causing some Insiders to see a bug check with a CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED error in the previous build while attempting to do various things including logging in, opening Outlook, and accessing network shares in File Explorer.
  • Mitigated an underlying issue that was leading to audio stutters and touchpad issues in the previous flight.
  • Addressed an explorer.exe crash Insiders were seeing in recent builds when attempting to use Windows Mixed Reality.

  • Fixed another issue where users weren’t hearing the startup sound.

Taskbar

  • We fixed the issue that was causing explorer.exe to crash if you right-clicked on the Start button or used WIN + X.
  • Mitigated an explorer.exe hang that could happen in the last few flights related to the visual indicator in the taskbar when sharing a window in Microsoft Teams.

Tablet-optimized taskbar

NOTE: These fixes will only show if a tablet-optimized taskbar is enabled on your device, which is beginning to roll out to Windows Insiders and not yet available for everyone.

  • Touch gestures are restored on all device types, as we resolved the issue that broke several of the new touch gestures announced as part of Build 22557 on non-tablet devices.
