Recently, Microsoft announced the next generation of Windows operating systems. Since then, we have already seen a couple of updates v22000.51 and v22000.71 offering early adopters a chance to test the new firmware.
Moving on from the success of Windows 7 and Windows 10, the Redmond tech company has started pushing the upcoming Win 11 OS to its Insider Program through Developer Channel. Registered members can get the initial preview before the public launch of the full and final version.
Windows 11 Build 22000.100 Update:
Right on cue, Microsoft has quietly pushed yet another update of the next generation of Windows for Windows Insiders via the Dev Channel.
This Windows 11 Insider Preview Build version 22000.100 contains some changes but plenty of fixes and critical improvements to the underlying software.
In addition, the Office 365 maker is issuing an updated Microsoft Store, aimed chiefly at improving the navigation experience through “fast and fun” scrolling between menus.
Main elements receiving treatment in this update include:
- Chat from Microsoft Teams.
- The hidden icons flyout on the lower right of the Taskbar gets the new visuals of Windows 11.
- Direct access to the Focus assist settings from Notification Center.
- The app icon flashes on the Taskbar to signal an app requiring attention.
- Resized touch keyboard icon to match the other icons in the corner of the Taskbar.
- Create room for notifications with a single click on the chevron in the top corner to draw down the Taskbar calendar flyout.
- Fast and fun scrolling experience in the Microsoft Store in the form of animations when selecting an app or movie.
Moreover, this issue addresses several problems in Taskbar, Settings, File Explorer, Search, Widget, and other areas identified in the previous updates.
Apart from the above, there is no shortage of known issues still waiting for attention from developers. Hopefully, upcoming releases fix the majority of them before the complete package becomes available to everyone later this year.

The long list of improved items and known issues highlights that the operating system is far from a finished product. The Windows 11 ver 22000.100 likely still demands attention from developers to glean potential errors from the operating system to get it ready for public use.
Interested users who are yet to register will need to first enroll with the Windows Insider Program to download the ISO file for this update. Whereas, existing developers should receive this update like a normal over-the-air update through Windows Update in Settings.
