Microsoft is back with another Windows 11 update and this time, Microsoft didn’t make big changes. Still, if you’re using the developer channel or Beta channel then make sure you update to the latest version for a smooth experience.

Today let’s see, the Windows 11 Build 22000.168 and find out what Microsft has to offer with the new Insider Preview.

New Microsoft 365 Widget

New Microsoft 365 Widget

I don’t know, how many people are using the Widget area because as of now, the Widget area doesn’t have support for third-party apps. So yes, it would be great, if we get third party apps support.

Meanwhile, the new Microsoft 365 Widget brings relevant documents, news and meeting recordings (with more to come!) to enterprise users.

To check it out just open widgets and click the “Add Widgets” button and select the Microsoft 365 Widget.

Microsoft Store Changes

Overhaul of the Library UI,

If you’re wondering, no still, we didn’t get the Android apps support. It looks like, Microsoft will add the Android app with stable Windows 11.


  • A complete visual overhaul of the Library UI, with simpler navigation and better performance to boot.
  • Updated Spotlight design for promoted products in the Microsoft Store app. Hover over an option to get a sneak peak of what’s inside.

Keep in mind, new Microsoft Store update is only available for Dev Channel, Beta Channel will get this new update if Microsoft didn’t find any issues.


  • Search:
    • We’ve addressed an underlying issue in the last couple flights for pen enabled devices that was resulting in Search getting into a state where it wasn’t possible to launch apps from the results.
  • Settings:
    • We fixed an issue where typing certain phrases into the search box in Settings were crashing Settings sometimes.
  • Widgets:
    • When using the Family widget, you should no longer unexpectedly see a message saying ‘connect a device to see screen time activity’ despite there being available activity to display.
  • Chat from Microsoft Teams:
    • We fixed the issue where sometimes videos would freeze or display a black image during video calls.
    • We also fixed the issue where if you switched between calls, the previous call is not automatically put on hold, so audio and video streams continue with both calls.

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.
  • We’re investigating an issue where on some devices, when going to Settings > Windows Update > Windows Insider Program, only the “Stop getting preview builds” option is visible. This prevents Insiders from selecting a channel. We have posted a workaround on Answers.
  • [BETA CHANNEL] We’re investigating reports from Insiders in the Beta Channel where after upgrading to Windows 11, they are not seeing the new Taskbar and the Start menu doesn’t work. To workaround this if you are impacted, please try going to Windows Update > Update history, uninstalling the latest cumulative update for Windows, and the reinstall it by checking for updates.
  • We’re working on a fix for an issue that is causing some Surface Pro X devices to bug check with a WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR.

  • Taskbar:

    • We’re investigating reports from Insiders with paired Bluetooth LE devices that are experiencing an increase in Bluetooth reliability issues and bugchecks after resume from hibernate or when Bluetooth is turned off.

    • The widgets board may appear empty. To work around the issue, you can sign out and then sign back in again.
