Rolling out new features for Windows 11, version 22H2 in the Release Preview Channel

Written By published October 4, 2022

Hello Windows Insiders,

As Panos announced a few weeks ago, we have an additional set of experiences coming in October for customers on Windows 11, version 22H2, as part of delivering continuous Windows innovation and value. We are beginning to roll out some of those new features to Windows Insiders in Release Preview on Windows 11, version 22H2 Build 22621.608 (KB5017389) including:

  • New! We enhance File Explorer. It now includes tabs to help you organize your File Explorer sessions like you do in Microsoft Edge. On the new File Explorer homepage, you can pin important files for quick and easy access. Using the power of Microsoft OneDrive, you can view your colleagues’ actions on your shared files. We also provide personalized suggestions based on your Microsoft 365 account.
  • New! We add a feature called Suggested Actions for items that you copy. This is available for customers in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. For example, when you copy phone numbers or future dates, we provide suggestions, such as make a call with Teams or Skype or add an event in the Calendar app.
  • New! We add a taskbar overflow menu. The taskbar will offer an entry point to a menu that shows you all your overflowed apps in one space.
  • New! You can now share to more devices. You can discover and share to more devices, including desktops, using a nearby sharing.

NOTE: Not all Insiders will see these new features right away as we monitor feedback before pushing them out to more Insiders.
