It has been a few weeks since Microsoft announced the release of Beta versions of Windows 11 and today the tech giant announced that the Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.132 is now available for Beta Channels and Developers. Alongside the Preview Build 22000.132, the company also released the first updates for several applications that will be included with the Windows 11 package. Let’s talk more about the Preview Build 22000.132 in more detail.
First things first, the Preview Build can now be accessed by Dev and Beta channels. It is worth noting that the list of fixes released by Microsoft is longer than the list of new features. Although this might not excite general users, it is a great sigh of relief for developers of the Dev channel. Additionally, the new build now offers Chat from Microsoft Teams directly on the Beta Channel. This means that more users can now experience new audio and calling features included within the app.
Let us now talk about the fixes released by Microsoft. Microsoft states that they have fixed the “Search” issue in which users were experiencing blank search results when they typed something in the Taskbar. Additionally, Microsoft has also fixed several problems with the widgets including the problems with opening links. For people using dual-monitor setups, users can now launch several Widgets directly from the Taskbar. The issue of the Taskbar getting crashed has also been resolved after the new Windows Sandbox patch.
In addition to these software fixes, Microsoft has also updated its first bunch of applications included with the Windows 11 package. The first application to get a major update is the Snipping Tool. The new application replaces the current Snip & Sketch Tool and the Snipping Tool. After the update, you can launch the application directly by pressing WIN + SHIFT + S keys in order. In addition to easability, the Snipping Tool now offers several editing options as well which was missing previously. The tool is also offered in the Dark Mode theme which looks quite good.
Another application that has been buffed is the Calculator. The Calculator application on Microsoft 11 has now been coded in the C# language thanks to which the application now supports more than 100 Currency and Unit Conversions. It also includes a Programmer Mode which can be used to analyze and plot different sets of data. It would be a really beneficial feature for developers and engineers.
At last, the Mail and Calendar application has also been revamped. The applications now offer new and better visuals. You get a lot of new themes including the Dark Mode.
