Microsoft announced Windows 11, a next-generation of Windows, last month. They entirely redesigned everything and addressed everything needed in a modern operating system. Eventually, they started rolling out the insider preview of the Windows 11 last week. Today, They have started rolling out the third insider preview update in the dev channel with some new feature additions and massive bug fixes. Let’s talk about the new changes. The new update carries the build number 22000.100.
New features and improvements in Windows 11 build 22000.100
- Finally added the Microsoft teams integration
- The hidden icons flyout on the lower right of the Taskbar has been updated to match the new visuals of Windows 11.
- They have added the ability to quickly access Focus assist settings directly from Notification Center.
- When a background activity from an app requires attention, the app will flash on the Taskbar to get your attention. In Windows 11, we have updated this design so that it still grabs your attention but with a calming treatment that minimizes the impact of unwarranted distractions. The subtle flashing eventually stops, and you will see a slightly red backplate and red pill under the app icon continuing to note a background activity needs your attention.
- The touch keyboard icon in the Taskbar has been adjusted to be more consistent with the size of the other icons in the corner of the Taskbar.
- The Taskbar calendar flyout will now fully collapse down when clicking the chevron in the top corner to give you more room for notifications.
- In the latest Microsoft Store update rolling out to Insiders, we made navigation in our new Microsoft Store feel fast and fun. When you select an app or movie you’re interested in, you might notice some animations that help you keep track of what you’re browsing. Give it a try, we hope you like it as much as we do.
Fixes in Windows 11 build 22000.100
- They have fixed the issue that was causing Explorer.exe to crash when the date and time button on the Taskbar is clicked to access new notifications with Focus Assist turned off.

- Fixed an issue that was making the clock in the Taskbar get stuck and out of sync.
- Addressed an explorer.exe crash that could happen after resuming from standby, related to the volume icon in the Taskbar.

- They have fixed an issue causing multiple buttons and options in Settings to not work in the previous flight, including Go Back and Reset Your PC under Recovery, enabling Developer mode, renaming your PC, and enabling Remote Desktop.
- The page titles in Settings should no longer be drawing too high up / off screen.
- Searching for add and remove programs in Settings should now return the expected Settings page.
- We’ve done some work to help search in Settings initialize faster.
- Using mouse to open the context menu in File Explorer and on the desktop should no longer display a keyboard focus rectangle on first launch (until you start using the keyboard to navigate it).
