Fixes for build 22000.184, Windows 11 beta
The first of the updates that we are going to see is going to be the beta, which in a few weeks will be the definitive version of our operating system. This is the most advanced version of the operating system, so it is totally understandable that there are no errors or serious bugs, and that in the list of changes we only see corrections and not last minute news.
In this way, the two changes that have come to the new Microsoft operating system are:
- Fixed an issue that caused Windows Hello steps to not be translated into Spanish in the initial setup wizard.
- Fixed several minor translation bugs.
In addition, Microsoft has updated the list of known bugs and issues, bugs that must be fixed before the final release of the operating system. These errors are:
- A WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR error on Surface devices.
- Some Insider users don’t see the taskbar, and the start menu doesn’t work. If we are affected by this problem, Microsoft recommends that we uninstall the latest patch from Windows Update.
- Sometimes it is impossible to use the search engine from the start menu.
- The “System” and “Windows Terminal” options are not available when right-clicking on start.
- The taskbar sometimes flickers when changing the input language.
- When clicking on the search button, the panel sometimes did not open.
- The search panel appears black at times, and nothing can be seen.
- The Widgets panel may appear empty to some users.
- Widgets may be the wrong size at times.
- Microsoft Store:
- Microsoft continues to work on improving the search and relevance of the Microsoft Store.
- Windows Sandbox:
- It is not possible to change language within Windows Sandbox.
- Problems with IME keyboards within this function.
All the news from build 22454
As we already know, Microsoft has not had time to include all the news that it would like in Windows 11, but has reserved a few tricks up its sleeve for future updates. In this way, the new build 22454 is a forward-thinking update, available only to Insider users who are targeted within the Dev channel of the operating system.
The changes and news that have come with this version are the following:

Microsoft informs that some of the changes that we have seen in this new build could imminently reach the beta version, or directly to the final version that we will all receive on October 5.
In addition, the company has updated the list of known bugs and problems in this Insider branch of Windows 11. These problems are the same as we have seen in the previous point, in build 22000.184, so we are not going to repeat them.
How to install the new Insider versions
Users who are already using Windows 11 will receive these new versions just like any other, that is, via Windows Update. Depending on whether we are in the Dev channel, or in the Beta channel, we will receive the first or the second, with its changes, corrections and new errors.
In any case, if we are not already using Microsoft’s new operating system, we recommend that you wait three more weeks, until October 5th, to update directly to the final version and make sure we have the least possible problems.
