    I always reinstall the drivers when upgrading to newer builds...

    Has anyone noticed even more stuttery desktop animations on 24H2 with Nvidia & latest updates/drivers? What I can see on one system looks like Nvidia's classic VRAM clocking stutter, but even far more terrible. It often happens when e.g. closing Chrome's window. Looks like a smack in the face, just outright terrible.

    It's a Windows 11 24H2 issue, Windows 11 23H2 don't suffer from this problem on the latest Nvidia driver & latest Windows update.

    Though it's weird that it doesn't happen with GPU forced to high clocks. If I had to guess, I'd say it looks like the driver doesn't show the same frame just ~twice when VRAM clock changes occur, but multiple times.

    June 25, 2024—KB5039302 (OS Builds 22621.3810 and 22631.3810) Preview

    Highlights

    These might not be available to all users because they will roll out gradually.
    • New! This update adds a new Game Pass recommendation card on the Settings home page. This home page shows on Home and Pro editions when you sign in to Windows using your Microsoft account. The card appears if you actively play games on your PC.

    • New! The show desktop button is on the taskbar again by default. To change this, right-click the taskbar and choose Taskbar settings. At the lower part of the page, you will find Taskbar behaviors.

    • New! This update affects File Explorer. You can now create 7-Zip and Tape Archive (TAR) files using the context menu. When you right-click a file, a Compress to item gives you ways to compress a file using tools like gzip, bzip2, and more. There is also a new compression wizard in Additional options. It will help you choose more formats and add details. You can use different types of compression to add many files to archives in other TAR formats. You can also change the compression level and choose the types of data to store in each archive.

    • New! This update adds support for Emoji 15.1. Windows supports Unicode symbol-like shapes for family groupings. But Windows will keep using people for them. Also, you can choose the right or left facing direction for some people emoji. The new emoji are:
      • Horizontal and vertical head shake

      • Phoenix

      • Lime

      • Brown mushroom

      • Broken chain
    • New! You can now copy files from the Windows Share window. Just click the new Copy button.

    • New! This update starts the rollout of the new account manager on the Start menu. When you use a Microsoft account to sign in to Windows, you will get a glance at your account benefits. This feature also makes it easy to manage your account settings.

    • New! This update makes it easier to see when you have selected files or folders in File Explorer. Because of this change, a thin, black border now appears around the item you have selected.

    • New! We are advancing the Copilot experience on Windows. The Copilot app is now pinned to the taskbar and behaves like an app. This gives you the benefits of a typical app experience. For example, you can resize, move, and snap the window. For existing Windows 11 PCs, the timing of availability and delivery method will vary. This might not be available to all users because it will roll out gradually.

      Important This feature only applies to new Windows 11 PCs and new Copilot+ PCs that ship to the European Economic Area (EEA) and other markets where Copilot is available.

    I've been a Windows Insider for years now but on the Release Preview channel. I have had Windows 11 Pro 24H2 26100.994 and now 26100.1000 installed for a few weeks now with no issues. However, I am confused as to why Settings > Updates > Features Updates still shows Windows 11 23H2 installed on 26/09/23 and not Windows 11 24H2. Is that because this is not officially released yet? Not a big deal, just puzzled as to why it doesn't show the new build there.

    I'm on the Insider Release Preview channel as well, but Settings > Updates > Features Updates does list both versions in the history list:

    No, it isn't. Windows 11 was pre-installed on my new custom-built PC when I received it from PC Specialist back in December 2022. I then upgraded to 24H2 via Windows Update in the Release Preview channel on 26/09/23, which is the version I can only see listed in Featured Updates. Previously, that section would show all the major updates so I would have expected to have seen at least 23H2 and 24H2 listed there as the two Feature Updates or just the latest version 24H2.

    Not sure why 24H2 isn't showing. Not a big deal as 24H2 is definitely installed and the cumulative updates for 24H2 do show in Windows Update.

    Looks like Fortnite crashes with 24H2 are gone both on Radeon & GeForce. Could play for two days with HWRT-Lumen (not that I would recommend that when not just running the game to admire the graphics) and it didn't crash, and also not with other settings. Same on my relative's 4090 system. So I guess either Windows or game update has fixed it.

    I cancelled my Xbox Game Ultimate subscription back in early May when it became clear to me that I just wasn't getting any value out of it. Now every week, I get a nagging notification in my account, visible when I go to shut down my PC, on Windows 11 Pro 24H2 26100 that the subscription has expired with three choices but none to shut it up for good.

    Does anyone know of a registry tweak or setting that I can change to permanently disable this? It really is quite annoying and typical of Microsoft.
