Microsoft released Windows 11 build 22000.708 with lots of bug fixes

    Microsoft released this month’s Windows 11 ‘D’ week update, and as always, there’s a ton of fixes to go with it.

    Today is the first day of Microsoft’s Build 2022 developer conference, but that doesn’t mean all company news will be out of the way. The company is also releasing this month’s D weekly update for Windows 11, an optional update that covers most of what we’ll see next month on Patch Tuesday.

    If you’re looking for optional updates on Windows 11, you’ll get KB5014019, bringing the build number to 220000.708. You can download it manually here.

    While there are a lot of bug fixes, there are actually some new features being tested by Insiders. In fact, if you’re on the Release Preview ring, you already have this entire update. One is a better Family Safety verification experience when the child account submits requests for more device time.

    The other is the Windows spotlight on the desktop, allowing you to set rotated images as your wallpaper. This is something that we have seen on the lock screen for a long time. You should now be able to set it as your wallpaper by selecting Windows spotlight in Settings.

    Here are the rest of the highlights from this update:

    • Addresses an issue where screen brightness cannot be maintained after you change the display mode.

    • Addresses an issue affecting IE-mode window frames.
    • Addresses an issue that prevents internet shortcuts from updating.
    • Addresses an issue that causes the Input Method Editor (IME) to remove a character if you type it while the IME is converting previous text.
    • Addresses an issue that causes Widgets to display the wrong screen when you hover over the Widget icon on the taskbar.
    • Add an animation to the Widget icon when you click or tap the icon and the taskbar is aligned to the left.
    • Addresses an issue that affects the display of the default Widget icon on the centered taskbar.
    • Addresses an issue that causes app icons to appear blurry in Search results when the screen’s dots-per-inch (dpi) ratio is greater than 100%.
    • Addresses an issue that causes file copying to be slower.
    • Addresses an issue where the search box cannot automatically provide input focus when you select the Start menu and start typing.

    Of course, those are just the highlights. The full list of fixes is huge.

    There is a known problem. If you install this update, some .NET Framework 3.5 applications may not open, so to resolve this issue, you will have to re-enable .NET Framework 3.5 and Windows Communication Foundation in Features of Windows.

    Again, this is an optional update. That means you can absolutely get it through Windows Update, but you don’t have to. If you choose to skip, you’ll receive these fixes on Patch Tuesday and the update will install automatically.
