Windows 11 available in preview channel

As we come close to the release of Windows 11, Microsoft has yet again surprised its users with the Windows 11 build 22000.194. The catch, however, is that it will only be available to users running builds on the supported hardware.

Fixed bugs

Although the preview builds have been facing an array of bugs, Microsoft promises to bring along those fixes to the OS. It is also making ISO images available for Insiders who may wish to do a fresh install.

The build 22000.194 is similar to the one that was released on the beta channel for Insiders. The builds have been receiving fixes, so users should brace themselves for a couple more to come. There is a possibility that this will be the build proceeding to Windows 11 devices.


Some of the apps receiving updates include the calculator, snipping tool and clock with focus sessions.

Some of the fixes include:


There was an issue where users had problems when enabling and disabling a contrast theme. The minimize/maximize/close buttons became unusable and unseeable and also affected the artifacts in title bars.


The issue where connected devices became unusable has been fixed.


Fixed the issue of subtitles not appearing on certain apps.


The settings window would be rendered elsewhere on the screen, and characters were not displaying on the search box.
