Windows 11 build 22621.457 comes to Release Preview with more fixes
Microsoft is releasing a new cumulative update for Windows Insiders running Windows 11 version 22H2 in the Release Preview channel, bring the build number to 22621.457. This update is mostly focused on fixing a wide range of issues, but there are some more notable improvements, too. These are largely based on what was in build 22621.450, which was released in the Beta channel in early August.
Among the new capabilities, there’s the ability to see the usage history for system resources, like the camera, microphone, phone calls, and so on, in the Settings app. You can find this in the Privacy & Security section of the Settings app, and it lets you see what apps accessed these resources over the past seven days, so you can stay on top of your privacy. Other improvements include a more effective Windows Defender for Endpoint, which should now do a better job at intercepting ransomware attacks, as well as an improvement to SMB compression, making it so that files are always compressed regardless of their size.
Aside from that, it’s mostly fixes in this build, and that’s to be expected. Last we heard, Microsoft is planning to release Windows 11 version 22H2 on September 20th, so time is running out to fix any issues that are still around ahead of the official release. You can find the full list of fixes below.

It’s also been reported that Microsoft is planning to release the first “moment” update for Windows 11 version 22H2 by the end of the year, and this seems to be currently in testing with Windows Insiders in the Beta channel. If you sign up to get Windows 11 build 22622, you can already have features like taskbar overflow. It seems like smaller features like this will be released in these “moment” updates, which are somewhat like Pixel feature drops in the Android world. That should hold us over until the next version of Windows, which we’re tentatively calling Windows 12.
