Microsoft has released Windows 11 Build 22000.706 for insiders registered with the Release Preview Channel on Windows 11. This version brings tons of fixes (along with several feature enhancements) for insiders that are likely to be released to the public next Tuesday’s Update.

Here is the complete list of fixes that come with Windows 11 KB5014019 (Build 22000.706)

  • New! We’ve improved the attempt to verify Family Safety for a children’s account when you submit an extra screen request.
  • New! The Windows Desktop Spotlight brings the world to your desktop with new everyday wallpapers. With this feature, new photos will automatically be displayed as a desktop background. This feature already exists for the lock screen. You can also find more information about each background photo on the web. To turn this feature on, go to Settings> Personalization> Background> Customize your background. Choose Spotlight on Windows.
  • We have fixed an issue that causes the introduction (TextInputHost.exe) to stop working.
  • We fixed the problem in searchindexer.exe which affects the search for forms in Microsoft Visio.
  • We prevented users from bypassing forced enrollment by disconnecting from the Internet when accessing Azure Active Directory (AAD).
  • Fixed an issue that could start an AnyCPU application as a 32-bit process.
  • We’ve fixed an issue that prevents Azure Desired State (DSC) configuration scripts, which have multiple partial configurations, from working as expected.
  • Fixed an issue that affected remote procedure calls (RPCs) to the Win32_User or Win32_Group WMI class. The domain member performing the RPC connects to the primary domain controller (PDC). When multiple RPCs occur simultaneously on multiple domain members, this can overload the PDC.
  • We’ve fixed an issue that adds a trusted user, group, or computer that has one-way trust. The error message “Selected object does not match destination source type” appears.
  • We’ve fixed an issue that failed to show the Application Counters section in the Performance Monitor performance reports.
  • We have fixed a problem that fails to maintain the brightness of the display after you change the display mode.
  • We have fixed an issue that may affect some applications you are using d3d9.dll with certain graphics cards and may cause these applications to close unexpectedly.
  • We have fixed an issue that affects the frame of the IE mode window.
  • We’ve fixed an issue that affects Group Policy templates.
  • We’ve fixed an issue that prevents the Internet shortcuts from updating.
  • We have fixed an issue that causes some users to see a black screen when logging in and out of Windows.
  • We’ve fixed an issue that causes the Input Method Editor (IME) to reject a character if you enter the character while the IME is converting the previous text.
  • We’ve fixed an issue that affects the Desktop Duplicate API, which affects display orientation and causes a black screen image.
  • Fixed an issue that caused printing failures when a low-integrity (LowIL) application printed to zero port.
  • We’ve fixed an issue that prevents BitLocker from encrypting when you use the silent encryption option.
  • We’ve fixed an issue that causes a false negative when running scripts while Windows Defender Application Control (WDAC) is on. This can cause AppLocker events 8029, 8028 or 8037 to appear in the log when they should not.
  • We’ve fixed an issue that occurs when you apply multiple WDAC rules. This can prevent scripts from running when policies allow scripts to run.
  • We have fixed an issue that affects the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) driver, which can increase system startup time.
  • We’ve fixed an issue that could cause the Remote Desktop Client application to stop working when you end a session.
  • We have fixed an issue that affects the behavior and orientation of the mouse cursor format for Microsoft Defender Application Guard (MDAG), Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Edge. This problem occurs when you turn on a virtual graphics processor (GPU).
  • We’ve fixed an issue that causes widgets to appear on the wrong monitor when you hover over the widget icon on the taskbar.
  • We added an animation to the Widgets icon when you click or tap the icon and the taskbar is aligned to the left.
  • We’ve fixed an issue that affects the display of the default Widgets icon in the taskbar, which is centered.
  • Fixed an issue that caused blurred application icons in search results when the scaling of dots per inch (dpi) on the display was greater than 100%.
  • Fixed an issue that caused files to be copied more slowly due to a miscalculation of write buffers in the cache manager.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the system to stop responding when a user exits if Microsoft OneDrive is in use.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent you from running recovery discs (CDs or DVDs) if you created them using Backup and Restore (Windows 7) application in the control panel. This issue occurs after you install Windows updates released on or after January 11, 2022.
