Microsoft has put its operating system back into the development branch RS_PRERELEASE. This means that everything we see from here on does not correspond to the version of the operating system that we will all see on October 5. Thus, Microsoft officially begins a new development branch in which it will include changes intended for the first major update of this new OS.
The company has wanted to make it clear that, from now on, we will not see new functions or features in Windows 11. The development of the new OS is going to focus, for a time, on improving performance and the system and correcting everything type of errors. In addition, a new watermark has just appeared on the desktop, clearly indicating that we are facing a preliminary version of the OS.
In addition, the only novelty that appears reflected within this new build 22458 is a new button, within the shutdown panel, which allows us to access the login options. This button is not new, it arrived last week with its build, but since it was not registered in the changelog, it has now appeared.
So what does this bring new build 22458? Let’s see it.
