Microsoft sneaks out a rare Tuesday Windows 11 Insider build
A pair of builds have made their way to the Beta Channel.
What you need to know
- Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22621.1755 and 22624.1755 rolled out to the Beta Channel today.
- Build 22624.1755 has new features on by default while Build 22621.1755 does not.
- Neither of today's builds include new features, however, as they focus on fixes.
Microsoft released a pair of Windows 11 Insider builds to the Beta Channel today. Neither of the builds include new features, so the updates are relatively minor. They are, however, at least a tad noteworthy because they rolled out on a Tuesday. Microsoft frequently ships builds on Wednesdays.
Apart from their unusual release date, the builds are not very exciting. They include several fixes, such as an update that prevents the Settings app from crashing when trying to uninstall an app while using grid view.

You can install the builds through Windows Update if you're enrolled to be a Beta Channel Insider.
Here's everything that's new, as outlined by Microsoft.
Build 22624.1755: Fixes
- Settings should no longer crash when attempting to uninstall an app while using grid view.
- Fixed an issue where the Pinyin IME’s insert text button wasn’t displaying correctly in some cases.
Build 22621.1755 & Build 22624.1755: Fixes
- This update addresses a race condition in Windows Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS). The Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) might stop responding. This occurs when the system processes multiple local account operations at the same time. The access violation error code is 0xc0000005.
Search on the Taskbar
- If you have the Bing button in the search box on the taskbar and you restart your computer, you may see the daily rotating search highlight for some time before getting the Bing button back.
- When you launch the widgets board for the first time, you may see momentarily placeholders of the widgets/feed cards of the old 2-column layout even if your device supports 3-columns.

Which is it?
One has new features on by default and the other does not (which implies it has them, just not on by default), then you said neither has new features.
