We have been looking at a lot of updates recently and today isn’t going to be any different, since Microsoft put out new software for the Release Preview Channel.

On that note, you should definitely check out the March 2023 Patch Tuesday rollout, and find out how some of these updates might affect SSD performance.

Also, since we’re talking about the Edge browser, we can show you how to disable rounded corners for your web pages.

Today, we’re going to explore KB5023778 and see what it brings to the most recent Microsoft-designed operating system.

A lot of new features coming to Windows 11

Indeed, Windows Insiders that actively test software on the Release Preview Channel are being updated to Windows 11 version 22H2 22621.1483 (KB5023778).

This build includes more ad notifications in the Start menu for those logged into a Microsoft account with handy reminders such as backup your files with OneDrive.

For the time being, this feature is only available to a small audience right now, and it will deploy more broadly in the coming months.

You should know that some devices might notice different visual treatments as Microsoft gathers the necessary feedback.

Some PC issues are hard to tackle, especially when it comes to missing or corrupted system files and repositories of your Windows.
Be sure to use a dedicated tool, such as Fortect, which will scan and replace your broken files with their fresh versions from its repository.

Furthermore, the new Bing Chat shortcut experience to Edge arrives in the search box on the taskbar, making it easier for us to access the feature.

That being said, know that Microsoft isn’t only adding new features, it is also removing a lot of the older ones, such as the Remote Mailslot protocol in Windows 11.

We have to remind you about the many new features and improvements added to Microsoft Defender for Endpoint as well.

Let’s take a more in-depth look at the rest of the changelog and see for ourselves what we should expect after installing this update.
