Windows 11 Build 22000.100 (KB5004300) comes with visual improvements

Windows 11 Build 22000.100 now moves to user channel users of the Windows Insider program. This is the fourth public overview of Windows 11 and it comes with new improvements. However, no new feature, the focus is on the treatment of design consistency issues.

If you are in the Dev Canal, you will see a new update called “Cumulative Update for Windows 11 (10.0.222000.100) (KB5004300)”. In addition to the cumulative update, Microsoft has also published new Windows Defender updates, which also move on Windows 10.

Windows 11 KB5004300 comes with multiple enhancements for the taskbar. For example, Microsoft finally puts the update of the system tray. As you probably know, the system tray includes a selection of icons that only appear when you click the Extended button. As indicated in the screenshot below, this Flyout now has a modern interface.

In addition to visual improvements, Microsoft has also updated the default touch keyboard icon in the taskbar to match the size of other icons.

Similarly, the calendar flight from the Windows taskbar has been updated and will collapse now or minimize when you click the Notification Center button.


New features in Windows 11 Build 22000.100 (KB5004300)

The 22000.100 construction improves the icon alert template on the Windows 11 taskbar. As shown in the screenshot below, Microsoft explores a new design for application alerts. This new design is visible when applications require special attention from the user. For example, if a file transfer requires your action, the explorer automatically starts flashing on the taskbar.

However, the flash would be calm and subtle. In fact, it will eventually stop and a red back plate will appear instead.

Microsoft Store also gets a new update with quality improvements. For example, Microsoft has improved Navigation of the New Store application under Windows 11. As a result, scrolling faster and new animations will appear when you open an application or movie ad.


Focus Assist in notification center

The notification center previously known as the Action Center, receives a new feature that would allow you to quickly access focus support settings. You can also configure Focus attend from fast settings or the main settings.

Here’s a list of other improvements in Build 22000.100 (KB5004300):

  • Microsoft has resolved an issue that crashes Explorer.exe when you click on the date and time button on the taskbar. This problem was experienced on devices where the Focus Assist feature is turned off.
  • Microsoft is bringing back icons for some context menu entries.
  • A bug has been fixed where the taskbar clock loses Windows sync support and gets stuck.
  • A bug has been fixed where explorer.exe could resume the device from standby
  • You can now click on the Taskbar to close Start or Search. This feature was missing in original builds.

Microsoft Teams chat integration

In addition, Microsoft now allows you to integrate team integration into the Windows 11 taskbar, allowing users to log in for free with friends, family and colleagues. This new cat integration is based on Microsoft Teams 2.0, which is powered by Microsoft Edge WebView (Chrome).

As you can see in the screenshot above, it will allow users to start a discussion directly from the taskbar. For now, you can send messages, images and more. In the coming weeks, Microsoft will allow users to launch meetings directly from the taskbar to any global person on all platforms.
