Windows 11 build 22622.436 is a build of Nickel, the 22H2 development semester of Windows as a service. It was released to a subset of Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel on 19 July 2022 as the KB5015669 enablement update to build 22621.436 for new features included, which may not be enabled by default and instead be rolled out.

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

Taskbar[edit | edit source]

The taskbar overflow feature, which has been absent since the initial release of Windows 11, has been re-added.

File Explorer[edit | edit source]

  • The folder name will be always visible in the tab at the top of File Explorer when the "Show full path in title" option is enabled.
  • The tooltip when hovering over a tab has been updated to suggest using Ctrl+W to close the tab rather than Ctrl+F4.

Shell[edit | edit source]

  • The nearby sharing feature via the built-in Windows share window has been enhanced by using private UDP ports and Bluetooth to discover nearby devices.
  • The ability to choose OneDrive as a target to directly upload the file to OneDrive via the built-in Windows share window has been added.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

Some Windows UI components, such as explorer.exe, may stuck in a crash loop.

  • Running the following command from an elevated PowerShell window may resolve this issue:
    Add-AppxPackage -Register -Path C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.UI.Xaml.CBS_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml -DisableDevelopmentMode -ForceApplicationShutdown
    

File Explorer[edit | edit source]

The Up button next to File Explorer address bar may be misaligned with other buttons.

  • This issue will only be encountered if the tabbed browsing feature is enabled on the device.

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.
