Windows 11 build 22621.608 fixes many issues with version 22H2

Microsoft is rolling out a preview update for users running the new Windows 11 2022 Update (version 22H2). The update, titled KB5017389, brings the OS build number to 22621.608, and brings a host of fixes to many issues users may have encountered with the initial release of the first major update for Windows. 11.

These aren’t just fixes, however, there’s actually a more noticeable change. Microsoft is enabling more dynamic Widgets content with this update, which means you’ll now see taskbar notification badges for breaking news and other alerts in the Widgets panel. You can then see what content triggered the notification badge as a banner at the top of the Widgets table.

The list of fixes in Windows 11 build 22621.608 is long, but Microsoft highlights a few, including an issue where the Microsoft Store may not update. Here are all the highlights:

  • Addresses issues that cause Microsoft Store updates to fail.
  • Updates the start date of DST in Chile. It will start on September 11, 2022 instead of September 4, 2022.
  • Fixes an issue that affects the font of three Chinese characters. When you bold these characters, the width size is incorrect.
  • Fixes an issue that forces IE mode tabs to reload in a session.
  • Fixes an issue that successfully opens a browser window in IE mode to view a PDF file. Later, browsing to another site in IE mode in the same window fails.
  • Adds more dynamic Widgets content to your taskbar with a notification badge. When you open the Widgets table, a banner appears at the top of the table. It provides more information about what triggered the notification badge.
  • Fixes an issue that affects Dual SIM calls. If you select on YES on your phone and make a call on your device, the Dual SIM feature does not work.
  • Addresses an issue that affects some apps that have not been signed by the Microsoft Store. You must reinstall them after upgrading the operating system.

That’s a lot of fixes already, but the full list is even longer. You can find them below if you are interested.
