Although the Windows 11 RTM It is already frozen, in the absence of some last changes and corrections prior to its launch, Microsoft has already been working for a long time on what will be the first major update of its new operating system. Almost every week we can see new versions of this OS full of corrections, general improvements and, why not, some other news that could not reach the first version of this system in time. And so, continuing with its development, today comes the new build 22463.
What’s new in build 22463
The first thing to keep in mind is that this new version of the operating system still does not bring great news. Even though we’re on the branch Insider Dev, the most unstable, Microsoft is still focused on other maintenance and development of its new operating system.
Thus, some of the most important and relevant changes that we can find are:
- A new keyboard shortcut, CTRL + Shift + C, has been enabled to copy the directory of a folder.
- The pop-up to identify windows now shows round corners.
- Some minor adjustments have been made to the contrast of the themes.
- Added new volume icon in quick settings.
- New name for the “Accessibility” folder in the start menu.
- Added an option in the concentration assistant to activate it automatically during the first hour after a Windows update.
Furthermore, we cannot forget that, finally, the Microsoft PowerToys They are now available to all users of this new OS within the Microsoft Store.
