It’s been quite a while since we all participated in a good old-fashioned bug bash, so we’re here to let you in on the latest one.

When we say old-fashioned, we don’t mean dark ages old, so you can leave the torches and pitch forks at home, as we’re actually talking about a Windows 11 virtual bug hunt.

Today, Microsoft released two new beta builds for Windows 11 to the Beta Channel, in the form of Build 22621.436 and 22622.436 (KB5015888).

The latter comes with some interesting new features enabled, and Microsoft needs our help to test these features in order to prepare them for mainstream launch.

That being said, you’re running the above-mentioned Insider build for the Beta Channel, you can open the Feedback Hub to find a selection of Quests to try out and give feedback on.

We’re pretty sure you will want to join this event, so it’s our duty to tell you that you’ll need to get your machine updated fairly quickly because the Bug Bash will only run between July 20 and July 25 PDT.

The Redmond tech giant did not mention what participants would receive for their efforts, but in previous events, it has awarded Bug Bash stickers that appear in the Feedback Hub.

You are surely curious about what the tasks are, so don’t be discouraged, as we’re they are fairly run-of-the-mill activities.

Seasoned veterans will know that previous quests included things like accessing your Microsoft Account free benefits in Settings and easily finding the Settings you need via the Settings in-app search box.

Now, we know that a novice user could struggle with some tasks but, with a little bit of patience, these tasks will be done in no time.

As you can see, you don’t need to be extra tech-savvy to complete such a list, so go ahead and give it a try if you are running this build.

We all want Windows 11 to be a more complete, stable, and reliable experience, so let’s corner these pesky virtual bugs and give them hell.
