Microsoft released the monthly “C” release preview cumulative updates with non-security improvements and fixes for Windows 11.

Following are the highlights for KB5020044 (OS Build 22621.900) for Windows 11: 

  • Gives Microsoft OneDrive subscribers storage alerts on the Systems page in the Settings app. The alerts appear when you are close to your storage limit.
  • Provides the full amount of the storage capacity of all your OneDrive subscriptions. It also displays the total storage on the Accounts page in the Settings app.
  • Combines Windows Spotlight with Themes on the Personalization page. This makes it easier for you to discover and turn on the Windows Spotlight feature.
  • Addresses a known issue that affects the Input Method Editor (IME). Certain applications might stop responding. This occurs when you use keyboard shortcuts to change the input mode of the IME.
  • Addresses an issue that causes File Explorer to stop working. This occurs when you close context menus and menu items.

IMPORTANT: There will be no preview, non-security releases for Windows 10 or Windows 11 during the month of December. Preview releases normally target the third week of the month. There will be a December security update release, as usual.

 

Update:  To get the update, go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update.  The link to download and install the update can be found in the Optional updates available area.  To get the standalone package for this update, go to the Microsoft Windows Update Catalog website.

Via Bleeping Computer at Microsoft: KB5020044 makes Task Manager partially unreadable:

Microsoft says that parts of the Task Manager might become unreadable for some customers after installing this month's KB5020044 preview update for Windows 11 22H2 systems.


On affected devices, users might see that some user interface elements of the Task Manager are being shown using unexpected colors, making them unreadable.

 

See the referenced article for a work-around if your system has been affected.
