Changelog of Windows 11 Build 22000.100

These are the key highlights of the Build 22000.100 update

The Taskbar Alert

If you’re starting with initial versions of Windows 11, the applications present on the taskbar display a grey bar just below their icons. Once you’re done installing the Build 22000.100, the grey bar will turn red. But that is only when a specific application requires user attention.

Let’s take an Example – When you try to sign into your Microsoft Team account and it fails for some reason, like say due to incorrect credentials.

The taskbar calendar flyout fully collapses when you happen to click the chevron placed on the top corner. This will provide you with more room for notifications and other important messages.

Improving Navigation on the Microsoft Store

Microsoft has improved the overall navigation of their new Application Store. From now, scrolling through the applications will be more seamless, effortless, and a lot faster. Moving forward, it is also noticeable that some of the animations will help you keep track of what you have been browsing.

Chatting Option on Microsoft Team

Another new update is the new chat icon which appears on the taskbar. It will appear once you’ve successfully installed the cumulative update “KB5004300” on your computer. It is a sub-part of Microsoft teams where one can sync contacts and chat with colleagues and friends.

Focus Assist Settings

You can now get quick access to Focus Assist settings, that too directly from the Notification Centre. Reports suggest there have been quality improvements made when it comes to the taskbar, search, and File Explorer.

You can check out their Release Note to know more about the same.

Known Issues on Build 22000.100

Once you’ve installed the KB5004300 update, you might notice issues. It might be one or maybe even more, check which of the following issues you are facing on your computer –

File Explorer

Sometimes, the context menu doesn’t render properly and ends up truncated. When you’re clicking on icons on the desktop or taskbar, they may sometimes end up starting the wrong application. This happens even for the context menu items as well.

File Explorer keeps crashing under some conditions. For example, like using Turkish display language and displaying the PC being fully charged.

Start Menu & Taskbar

Windows terminals sometimes might disappear from the Power Menu. The Taskbar sometimes might flicker when you’re switching input methods.

Windows Search

The search bar sometimes stops responding and you aren’t able to type anything. The search panel sometimes turns black and doesn’t display any files on the screen. When you hover the mouse over the Search icon, it sometimes displays no results.

To solve any of these above issues, head to the Task Manager, and restart Windows Explorer.

Windows Security

The Windows Hello (Face Unlock) might prevent unlocking the system. In turn, it might throw an error saying – “Something went wrong”. In this scenario, it is recommended to use the PIN or the password.

Microsoft Store

In some cases, the ‘Install’ button is not yet functional. It only works in some limited scenarios. Developers are trying to improve the search relevances so that it doesn’t display inaccurate search queries.


Sometimes, opening widgets (WIN + D) results in displaying an empty space. To solve this issue, log out of your system and then try signing back in.  On the Widget Panel, once you click over an available link, the selected application may not open in the foreground.

If you are unable to deal with the above issues, we recommend not to opt for Build 22000.100 right now. Instead, we suggest waiting for the next cumulative update.

Note: All of the aforementioned issues include “maybe”.  It means the issue doesn’t occur in all cases. So, you can try it out and if any issue comes up, roll back the update to the previous build.

Note: The new Windows 11 requires two minimum features to run. They are the Secure boot and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0. If your computer is failing the compatibility check, try enabling Secure boot if disabled (Enable it from the BIOS).

If the problem still exists, it might be because of your old processor. It could also be because the computer is lacking the Trusted Platform Module 2.0.
