Microsoft has just released the new version of Windows 11 Insider Preview for registered testers in the Dev channel. Build 22533 brings several small fixes, but the highlight is the voice search in the taskbar and the possibility of pinning the feature to the Start Menu , as with other applications.
The redesign of the hardware tweaks submenus of settings such as volume, brightness, camera activation and airplane mode also arrived in the update. Previously, menus were black regardless of user settings, but now they adjust to either light or dark mode.
There are now 13 new touch keyboard themes, with emoji panel support and voice typing. Another change was to a physical keyboard shortcut: when you press Win + X or right-click the Start icon, it will now show “Installed Applications” instead of “Apps and Features”. Also, you can now uninstall the Clock app — it’s still unclear what happens when you do this.

The renewed design is to reflect the modern layout of Windows 11. The idea is to deliver solutions closer to those found on mobile devices, such as tablets and cell phones, which allow a greater level of customization.
Improvements needed in Windows 11
As the system development time was short, due to social distancing and isolation issues, Microsoft had to rush to put a minimally stable version on the street. Since launch, Windows 11 has seen a number of minor improvements, bug fixes, and tweaks to streamline the experience.
The big update of features and now should only arrive for end users around September, when the company usually releases a bundle with many new features. Until then, the way is to deal with these enhancements that help improve the usability of the world’s leading PC operating system.
To download the update, you must be subscribed to the Dev channel and access Windows Update from the system itself. If you are not yet part of the program and want to be a beta tester, simply join the Windows Insider tab.
