Windows 11 build 22616.1 is the twenty-ninth Insider Preview build of Nickel, the 22H2 development semester of Windows as a service. It was released to Windows Insiders in the Dev and Beta Channels on 5 May 2022.

This is the last build of Nickel to be flighted to the Dev Channel, since the next build moved all Dev Channel Insiders to receive builds from the Copper semester.

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

Shell[edit | edit source]

The unified hitboxes for Win32 system tray icons and the "show hidden icons" flyout, which initially announced in build 22563 and later rolled out to all users in build 22581, have been reverted to address feedback. As part of this change, the drag-and-drop feature for pinning or unpinning the tray icons has been re-enabled.

Bugfixes[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed an issue where performance and reliability of explorer.exe could degrade over time, eventually resulting in a bugcheck in recent builds.
  • Fixed an underlying issue which could cause some text in Windows Sandbox to appear as black boxes in certain cases.
  • Fixed an issue leading to Windows Update notifications showing they were sent from "Windows.SystemToast.WindowsUpdate.MoNotification" instead of "Windows Update".

Shell[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed an issue causing the hidden icons flyout on the taskbar to disappear completely in some cases.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Quick Settings to crash when projecting to certain wireless devices.
  • Addressed an issue where using the 3-finger on-screen touch gesture for minimizing could cause animations to stop working across the OS.
  • Fixed an issue impacting DWM reliability in recent builds.
  • Fixed an issue which was causing some apps to open blank if they were re-opened during an upgrade or reboot.

Input[edit | edit source]

Fixed an issue which was leading to some apps crashing when pressing the half-width/full-width key while using the Japanese IME.

Widgets[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed an issue causing the Widgets board to open and then immediately close if users tried to open the widgets board using a gesture from the side of the screen.
  • Fixed an issue where users were unable to use the swipe functionality to reliably invoke Widgets.

Task Manager[edit | edit source]

Fixed an issue that was causing the process list to fluctuate between Apps & Background groups when clicking on Efficiency mode from the command bar.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

Live captions[edit | edit source]

  • Certain apps in full screen (e.g., video players) may prevent live captions from being visible.
  • Certain apps positioned near the top of the screen and closed before live captions is run may re-launch behind the live captions window positioned at top.

Safe mode[edit | edit source]

  • Quick Settings and date/time clock on the taskbar may be missing due to the Capability Access Manager Service service not running.
  • Clicking Bluetooth & devices and Personalization pages may crash the Settings app due to an overrun of a stack-based buffer 0xc0000409.
