Microsoft has released the Windows 11 Preview build 22458 to the Dev Channel. The new build is expected to address many bugs that have been recently reported in the Start Menu, Settings app, and Search menu.

Although this update fixes a wide range of issues, some of the biggest visual bugs from the previous build remain, but hopefully, they will be fixed soon.

As you may be aware, the Microsoft builds have been facing an array of system bugs in Windows 11 22449.1000 making users wary of updating their PCs.

This build tackles those problems while introducing some minor changes, so join us while we take a quick overview of the new features and bug fixes.

What’s new in Windows 11 Build 22458?

Changes and improvements

  • A link to sign-in options in the Power menu

This change was introduced in the previous build, but it wasn’t documented by Microsoft, and many have missed it. It’s worth mentioning that this is just a link to the Sign-in options page in the Settings app, so it’s just a quality of life improvement.

As you can see, this is a minor change, but some users might find it useful since it will allow them to change their settings more quickly.

  • Improved Tips app

This build introduces an improved Tips app, and the new version comes with an acrylic background and many other visual changes.

There’s now more information available with over 100 new tips to help you get started with Windows 11, and you can learn about all sorts of things, ranging from shortcuts to productivity improvements.

Tips will now appear outside of the app, and you’ll see them in Windows while you’re using it. If you’re a fan of widgets, there’s also a new Tips widget that you might want to check out.

You can get tips in 36 different languages, which will surely come in handy for Windows 11 newcomers.

This build is focused more on fixing the bugs of the previous release, so it doesn’t bring too many changes, except for a couple of quality of life improvements.
