Windows 11 KB5017846 (22H2) Brings Important Improvements


Those who want to grab the latest improvements that Microsoft brings for its latest Windows 11 OS should consider installing the KB5017846 (22H2) update. The rollout has begun, and it’s available for Beta Channel testers, according to Windows Latest.

The new Windows 11 update only brings improvements to the OS created by Microsoft. There aren’t any new features, but that should definitely not discourage users from installing the update.

What’s new

The new KB5017846 (22H2) update for Windows 11 has a few highlights. It will enable the new ‘overflow flyout’ feature, for instance, which is accessible when there are too many apps opened. The feature will streamline the experience.

The new update also supports drag and drop once again. Until the update, users had some annoying problems with the Control Panel. To be more precise, the region was crashing when users tried to access it from the Start menu, the shortcut that’s pinned to the taskbar, or via the Windows Search function.

There are plenty of bug fixes coming to Windows 11 along with the new update, and here are some of them:

  • Default folders that are pinned to the navigation panel of File Explorer will be pinned back if the user has unpinned them.
  • Fixed the issue causing the keyboard to lose focus
  • Fixed a problem causing certain command bar buttons to not work.
  • Fixed a problem causing the search box background not having a dark background.
  • Users switching between light and dark mode dealing with File Explorer rendering unreadable text.

If you still haven’t made the shift to Windows 11, it’s good to know that the upgrade is free if your PC is running on Windows 10. You should also keep in mind that the latest operating system built by Microsoft occupies significantly more storage space compared to its predecessor.
