According to Windows Latest, Microsoft is rolling out KB5017390 as a cumulative update before the Windows 11 22H2 update rolls out in both Beta and Release Preview channels. There are a few bug fixes and a new feature, which is turned off in Build 22621.598.

As per the changelog, Build 22622.598 has received an update wherein you can no longer uninstall apps with inter-dependencies. For instance, Steam and gaming apps from the Steam app itself. You can still uninstall these apps from Settings, though.

Another slew of updates revolves around File Explorer. This cumulative update has fixed the issue wherein users found out they cannot use the command bar or it unexpectedly stops responding.

Apart from that, users were facing trouble interacting with the top section of the File Explorer when in Full-Screen mode, this has also been fixed.

The “launch folder windows in a separate process” was unable to launch File Explorer when accessing through explorer.exe, which has been fixed along the way.

Both the build versions have been freed of issues that triggered duplicate print queues that prevented the original queue from working. The next part in the changelog is with the Roaming User Profiles where some settings don’t restore themselves when signing in or signing out.

Microsoft is in-line to release the Windows 11 22H2 public update in the coming days while the full-fledged rollout will begin in a few weeks’ time.
