Windows 10 build 20221 is the fourteenth Insider Preview build of Iron. This build was released to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel on 23 September 2020.

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

These features were only available to a small group of Insiders at first, meaning that not everyone was seeing them right out of the box. As of build 20231.1000, they are available for all Dev Insiders.

  • The "Meet Now" Skype feature now contains integration to the Windows taskbar. It is a flyout present on the system tray that contains links to easily create or join Skype meetings without needing to sign-in or download anything. When any of the links is clicked, the Skype webpage or UWP app (if installed) opens on the respective screen.
    • Due to its gradual rollout, it is disabled by default on clean installations. To enable it, use Vibranium Velocity (ViVeTool), then type in the command ViVeTool.exe addconfig 28170999 2 in an elevated Command Prompt window and restart.
    • This feature is not available on Azure Active Directory (AAD) user accounts or Enterprise SKUs. However, the block was removed on Cobalt build 21277.
  • When Windows Insiders upgraded to this build, the People app no longer appeared as a standalone app in the Start menu, and as a result, it was only accessible from the Mail and Calendar apps.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • At the time of release, the update process had a chance of hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install this build.
  • Live preview doesn't work for pinned site tabs.
  • Some Office applications may either crash or go missing if you update to this build.
  • There's a chance of the Settings app crashing if you open Manage Disks and Volumes.
  • There's a chance of randomly encountering a BSOD with the error code KMODE_EXCEPTION when using certain virtualization technologies.
  • Sometimes, when starting up a WSL2 distro, there's a chance of randomly encountering the error “The remote procedure call failed”.
  • The vEthernet adapter used in WSL2 distros can randomly disconnect itself after a certain period of time.
  • When some Insiders updated to this build, they encountered a Compatibility Assistant notification that said “Microsoft Office is no longer available”. Despite the warning, the installed apps from the suite were still available and functional.
  • Clean installations for this build still contain the People app on the Start menu.
