No Android Apps for Dev Channel But Microsoft Drops a Fresh Build

Submit

Microsoft has released Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22483 to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. Today's release focuses mainly on bug fixes. The company has also added the "ability to right-click on either 'Recommended' or the 'More' button in Start to refresh the items show there."

Earlier today, Microsoft introduced Android apps on Windows 11, but only Beta Channel Insiders can enjoy the preview of a curated list of apps currently being ported to Windows thanks to a new Windows Subsystem for Linux component. More on that in this piece.

[General]

  • Users updating from Builds 22000.xxx, or earlier, to newer Dev Channel builds using the latest Dev Channel ISO, may receive the following warning message: The build you are trying to install is Flight Signed. To continue installing, enable flight signing. If you receive this message, press the Enable button, reboot the PC, and retry the update.

[Taskbar]

  • We’re working on the fix for an issue causing tooltips to appear in an unexpected location after hovering over the Taskbar corner.

[Search]

  • After clicking the Search icon on the Taskbar, the Search panel may not open. If this occurs, restart the “Windows Explorer” process, and open the search panel again.
