We’ve had a lot of software releases from Microsoft today, mostly all of the being updates for the Windows 11 operating system.

Dev Channel Insiders got their hands on Build 25169 today, while their Beta Channel brothers received KB5015890, with two new builds.

Windows 10 users also have reasons to be happy, as they just received version 22H2 of the OS to the Release Preview Channel.

Now let’s take a look at the Windows 11 Release Preview Channel, where Insiders are currently dealing with Build 22621.317.

What does Build 22621.317 bring to Windows 11?

Just as we’ve mentioned, Microsoft has released Windows 11 Build 22621.317 (KB5015885) to Windows Insiders on the Release Preview Channel, and this is what you should look out for.

  • Fixed an issue that prevents troubleshooters from opening.
  • Fixed an issue that might increase the latency of games when vertical sync (VSync or v-sync) is in use.
  • Fixed an issue that affects the ProjectionManager.StartProjectingAsync API and prevents certain locales from connecting to Miracast Sinks.
  • Fixed an issue that causes the Smart App Control to block catalog-signed files.
  • Fixed an issue that causes the Take a Test app to remove all policies related to lockdown enforcement when you close the app.
  • Fixed an issue that might highly distort photos you take using the Camera app. This issue occurs when using certain cameras under certain low light conditions.
  • Fixed an issue that throws an exception when you debug drivers using Visual Studio 2022 version 17.2 or later.
  • Fixed an issue that causes the Windows profile service to fail sporadically. The failure might occur when signing in. The error message is, “gpsvc service failed to sign in. Access denied”.
  • Fixed an issue that prevents virtualized App-V Office applications from opening or causes them to stop responding.

You might be pleasantly surprised to learn that there are no known issues plaguing this software version, so there’s really nothing to worry about.

We’re only receiving some fixes, and that’s pretty much all she wrote for Windows 11 Release Preview Channel Build 22621.317.
