Interested in picking up Windows 11 preview build 22499's ISO files? Now you can, because Microsoft has them available right now at its website. They're a Windows Insider Preview Download, so if you click that hyperlink in the previous sentence, know that you're going to need to be a member of the Windows Insider program to gain access to the ISOs and be on your way.

To get you up to speed, in case you haven't heard about build 22499: Windows 11 preview build 22499 released for Insiders in the Dev Channel, bringing with it a whole host of tweaks and changes to Microsoft's new operating system. One big item on the menu for the new build is enhanced Teams integration by way of a "quick share" feature that'll allow you to share the contents of app windows.

The fresh build also contains visual tweaks, improved Clock app support, and a laundry list of fixes for issues that have been plaguing Windows 11 users.

With all that said, for the most stable Windows 11 experience, you are typically advised to stick with the standard release build, which still gets updates quite frequently, albeit not as frequently as the Dev, Beta, and Release Preview Channels. Still, if you're here looking for ISOs, it means you likely want to live on the (Microsoft) edge.

In other major Windows 11 news, the new Windows 11 SE wallpaper is available for download. It places an emphasis on soothing pastel colors and does away with the solid blues of standard W11 stylings.
