      • Fixed an issue that was making the clock in the Taskbar get stuck and out of sync.
      • Addressed an explorer.exe crash that could happen after resuming from standby, related to the volume icon in the Taskbar.
      • Addressed an issue where the progress bar below app icons in the Taskbar was not displaying in some cases.

      • If you tap Taskbar icons using touch you should now see the same icon animation that was visible when using the mouse.
      • The lunar calendar (when enabled) text should no longer overlap the numbers in the Taskbar calendar flyout.
      • The calendar flyout should now show the correct month when in a collapsed state.
      • The date at the top of the calendar flyout should now follow your preferred format and not the format matching your display language.
      • If the Start menu is open, when hovering over Task View the window will now appear above Start menu instead of behind it.
      • Right-clicking Task View will now make the preview window dismiss so you can actually use the context menu.
      • Fixed an issue where if you click on a snap group in the Taskbar, it might not bring up all the app windows after docking and undocking.
      • The icons used for the On / Off indicators in the Taskbar for the Pinyin IME are now a consistent size.

      • The Taskbar previews will no longer draw offscreen after upgrading to this build.
    • Settings:
      • We fixed an issue causing multiple buttons and options in Settings to not work in the previous flight, including Go Back and Reset Your PC under Recovery, enabling Developer mode, renaming your PC, and enabling Remote Desktop.

      • Fixed a flicker where you could see New become New Item in the context menu.

    Known issues
    • [REMINDER] When upgrading to Windows 11 from Windows 10 or when installing an update to Windows 11, some features may be deprecated or removed. See details here.
    • Start:
      • In some cases, you might be unable to enter text when using Search from Start or the Taskbar. If you experience the issue, press WIN + R on the keyboard to launch the Run dialog box, then close it.
      • System and Windows Terminal is missing when right-clicking on the Start button (WIN + X).
    • Taskbar:
      • The Taskbar will sometimes flicker when switching input methods.
    • Settings:
      • When launching the Settings app, a brief green flash may appear.
      • When using Quick Settings to modify Accessibility settings, the settings UI may not save the selected state.
      • Settings will crash when clicking “Facial recognition (Windows Hello)” under Sign-in Settings if Windows Hello is already set up.
    • File Explorer:
      • Explorer.exe crashes in a loop for Insiders using the Turkish display language when battery charge is at 100%.
      • The context menu sometimes doesn’t render completely and ends up truncated.
      • Clicking a desktop icon or context menu entry may result in the wrong item being selected.
    • Search:
      • After clicking the Search icon on the Taskbar, the Search panel may not open. If this occurs, restart the “Windows Explorer” process, and open the search panel again.
      • When you hover your mouse over the Search icon on the Taskbar, recent searches may not be displayed. To work around the issue, restart your PC.
      • Search panel might appear as black and not display any content below the search box.
    • Widgets:
      • Widgets board may appear empty. To work around the issue, you can sign out and then sign back in again.
      • Launching links from the widgets board may not invoke apps to the foreground.
      • Widgets may be displayed in the wrong size on external monitors. If you encounter this, you can launch the widgets via touch or WIN + W shortcut on your actual PC display first and then launch on your secondary monitors.
    • Store:
      • We are working to improve search relevance in the Store including resolving an issue where in some cases the ordering of search results is inaccurate.
      • The install button might not be functional yet in some limited scenarios.
      • Rating and reviews are not available for some apps.
    • Windows Security
      • “Automatic sample submission” is unexpectedly turned off when you restart your PC.
      • Windows Hello (Face) may show an error saying “Something went wrong” when attempting to sign in after upgrading. To work around this, sign in with your password or PIN and:
        • Open Device Manager.
        • Uninstall “Windows Hello Face Software Device” under “Biometric devices”.
      • Localization
        • There is an issue where some Insiders may be some missing translations from their user experience for a small subset of languages running the latest Insider Preview builds. To confirm if you have been impacted, please visit this Answers forum post and follow the steps for remediation

    Wouldn't it be Pre-Alpha?

    Beta would start once it gets officially released to the general public..... like how we are currently using Windows 10 forever beta.

    It's almost as if this is not intended for use and is nothing more than a leaked build.

    Microsoft is actually issuing dmca takedown notices on file hosts that are hosting this leaked windows 11 iso, they obviously don't want it out there for people to use.

    At 44 years old I never get tired laughing at people complaining about how something they installed from some random source of a "leaked" release of software performs terribly.

    What does the UI look like in Windows 11 when you move the taskbar to the side or top?

    Can someone please test if the taskbar can be moved from the bottom? I read that the taskbar is locked to the bottom of the screen. Just why?

    I assume no as there no TPM mentioned.
    There no secure boot options either.
    This is 3xxx Intel process (Ivy-bridge).
    no biggy as there nothing I really like so far.

    Watch microsoft change system requirements when they see they aren't getting as many users as they want on 11.
