Windows 11 Build 22598 is available for users in both Dev and Beta channels, with many bug fixes and a few notable improvements. Like the previous update, Build 22598 comes from the Nickel branch.
Microsoft has focused on making Sun Valley 2 available to consumers with this patch, so there aren’t any interesting new features. With the new update, we see a few new shortcuts and a number of improvements for the revamped Task Manager.
