Windows 11 build 22572 comes with the Family Safety and Clipchamp apps

Like clockwork, Microsoft released the weekly build of Windows 11 to Insiders registered in the Dev channel. This time, we got Windows 11 build 22572 and it comes with a couple of new apps installed out of the box. The new apps are Family and Clipchamp.

Family is an app that allows you to manage family settings for your Microsoft account. If you have a family group, you can see your family members here, as well as manage screen time for kids, and even locate family members in real time. This app is only included with Windows 11 Home editions, so Pro users don’t need to worry about an extra app.

As for Clipchamp, it’s a video editing tool that Microsoft acquired last year. When Windows 11 launched, the Clipchamp icon was included with new installs, and it would install as a web app, since Clipchamp is a web video editor. Now, it’s installed out of the box, so you don’t need to wait for it to download and install. This is still a web app, though.

Although not available today, Microsoft also announced that it will begin rolling out a new experience for Windows Search starting early next week. This new feature comes with something called Search Features, which highlights trivia and popular searches based on the day. You can see things like if it was a holiday, what happened that day, etc. If you’re signed in with a work or school account, the search will instead return relevant information from your organization, such as people and files. This experience will also come to Windows 10.

Going back to what’s available today, Windows 11 build 22572 is making more improvements. Print Queue has been updated with a new design language that is compatible with the rest of Windows 11, and it now supports a dark theme. The Quick Assist app and Windows Sandbox also have a Fluent Design icon now, and Microsoft has updated the Notification Center icon to indicate when Do Not Disturb is enabled. In addition, you can now hold converts As you right-click an item on the desktop or in File Explorer to immediately open the old Show More Options context menu.

Other smaller changes include a change to the name of Windows Terminal, which is now called Terminal in the Start menu; Rename Windows Media Player to Windows Media Player Legacy (because there is a new Media Player app in Windows 11); Small tweaks to parts of the Settings app.

In addition to these changes, Windows 11 build 22572 includes some fixes for known issues in previous versions. The full list is below:

Of course, there are still some known issues with this version as well. Here’s what you should be aware of:

Known issues in Windows 11 build 22572

[General]

  • Users running Windows 10 trying to upgrade directly to version 22563 or higher in the Dev Channel may experience installation failure with error code 0x8007007f. To bypass, please join the Beta Channel, install the Windows 11 version offered there, and then switch to the Dev Channel to receive the current Dev Channel update. This issue is understandable and will be fixed in an upcoming build.

[Tablet-optimized taskbar]

  • The taskbar does not always collapse automatically after launching an application or clicking outside the expanded taskbar on 2-in-1 devices.
  • Some areas of the operating system do not keep track of the height of the expanded taskbar on 2-in-1 devices so you can see overlapping components, such as widgets overlapping the taskbar.

[File Explorer]

  • Opening suggested results that appear while entering search terms into the File Explorer search box may not work.
  • We’re fixing issues with icon size, visual errors, and text clipping in the popup that shows OneDrive storage.

[Widgets]

  • Sometimes when installing from the feed, the pinned widget is placed on top rather than the bottom of the other installed widgets. If this happens, it will autocorrect within 30 minutes, and move the recently installed gadget to the expected default location. Or you can log out of your dashboard and log back in immediately to correct the problem.
  • After rearranging the widgets in the widgets panel, some users are having issues with widgets displaying the pinned section incorrectly. If this happens, logging out of your dashboard and logging back in immediately should correct the problem.

[Focus]

  • The Clock app does not update the Windows Focus state yet when configuring focus sessions within the app. This will be addressed in a future app update.

[Narrator]

  • The narrator’s natural voices sound garbled and will not read the text accurately. This happens when you make quick navigation, typing, or pitch changes. As a workaround, you can switch back to the old sounds like Microsoft David, Mark or Zira.

[Live captions]

  • Some full screen applications (for example, video players) prevent live captions from appearing.
  • Some apps placed near the top of the screen will restart and close before the live captions run behind the live captions window placed at the top. Use the system menu (ALT + SPACEBAR) while the application is focused to move the application window down.
  • The top of magnified applications (eg title bar window management buttons) cannot be reached by touch while live comments are at the top.

[Task Manager]

  • Some tooltips do not accurately display the preferred visual setting when Task Manager is configured for dark mode.
