Today Microsoft releases Windows 11 build 22000.766 to the Release Preview channel in the Windows Insider program. It’s basically a preview of a preview update, with it available to non-insiders later this month.
KB5014668 also contains a lot. The most important new feature is called search highlights. Insiders in other channels have had this for a while. The idea is that you should be able to see events of interest, including holidays, anniversaries and educational moments. These can be global or local.
This also seems to be more of a business-focused feature, as these customers get a little more functionality out of it. This will provide organizational information, so it will suggest people, files and more.
But that’s not all, because as mentioned, there are lots of changes and fixes in this build.
Windows 11 build 22000.766 Changes and fixes
- New! We added IP address verification for incoming Windows Remote Management (WinRM) connections in security event 4262 and WinRM event 91. This We fixed an issue that failed to log the source IP address and machine name of a remote PowerShell.
- New! We added Server Message Block (SMB) Redirection (RDR) specific public File System Control (FSCTL) code FSCTL_LMR_QUERY_INFO.
- New! We made the order of the SMB client and the SMB server’s cipher suite configurable with PowerShell.
- New! We introduced search highlights:
Search highlights will present remarkable and interesting moments of what is special about each day – such as holidays, anniversaries and other educational moments in time both globally and in your region. To see search highlights, click or tap the search icon in the taskbar.
For corporate customers, search highlights will also include the latest updates from your organization and suggest people, files, and more.
Search highlights will be rolled out to Windows 11 customers in the coming weeks. We take a step-by-step and measured approach. Wide availability will take place in the coming months. For information on group configuration, see Group configuration: search for highlights in Windows.

- We fixed an issue where Japanese characters were incorrectly displayed in PowerShell.
- We have fixed an issue that affects the Cloud Clipboard service and prevents synchronization between machines after a period of inactivity.
- We fixed an issue that failed to hide the Windows Sandbox home screen after Sandbox started running.
- We’ve fixed an issue that caused a device that has a Japanese system language to stop working when you disable end-user-defined characters (EUDC).
- We activated InternetExplorerModeEnableSavePageAs Group policy. For more information, see Microsoft Edge Browser Policy Documentation.
- We provided the ability to use a network proxy during Universal Print operations.
- We’ve fixed an issue that could cause consecutive video playback to fail in games that use DirectX 12 (DX12).
- We fixed an issue that caused some games to stop working if they were using the XAudio API to play sound effects.
- We’ve fixed an issue that affected some certificate chain issuers that are members of the Microsoft Root Certification Program. For these certificates, the status of the certificate chain may be “This certificate has been revoked by its certification authority”.
- We Fixed an issue that prevented the use of Encrypted File System (EFS) files over a Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) connection.
- We addressed an issue that caused a domain controller to incorrectly write Key Distribution Center (KDC) event 21 in the system event log. This occurs when KDC successfully processes a Kerberos Public Key Cryptography for Initial Authentication (PKINIT) authentication request with a self-signed certificate for key trust scenarios (Windows Hello for Business and Device Authentication).
- We fixed an issue that prevented Bluetooth from reconnecting to certain audio devices after you restart the devices.
- We fixed an issue that occurred when Active Directory Lightweight Directory Service (LDS) resets the password for userProxy objects. The password reset fails with an error such as “00000005: SvcErr: DSID-03380C23, problem 5003 (WILL_NOT_PERFORM), data 0”.
- We resolved an issue that caused Microsoft NTLM authentication with an external trust to fail. This issue occurs when a domain controller that contains the January 11, 2022 or later Windows update services authentication request, is not in a root domain and does not have the Global Catalog role. The affected operations may log the following errors:
- The security database has not been started.
- The domain was in the wrong state to perform the security operation.
- 0xc00000dd (STATUS_INVALID_DOMAIN_STATE).
- We fixed an issue that caused it LocalUsersAndGroups Configuration Service Provider (CSP) policy fails when you modify the Built-in Administrators group. This issue occurs if the local administrator account is not listed in the member list when you perform a replacement operation.
- We fixed an issue where incorrect XML input could cause an error DeviceEnroller.exe. This prevents CSPs from being delivered to the device until you restart the device or correct XML.
- We fixed an issue that could cause Windows 11 (original version) to stop working when you install an application and there is no network connection.
- We updated the Start menu to display Windows PowerShell when you right-click (Win + X) the Start button after uninstalling Windows Terminal.
- We changed the name of the app Your Phone to Phone Link on the Settings page.
- We’ve fixed an issue that caused the Microsoft Surface Dial customization settings page to stop working.
Note that this update is only for those who are on the Release Preview channel and are still on Windows 11 version 21H2. It’s a bit confusing, but Windows 11 version 22H2 is also available in the Release Preview channel, and it’s only for “viewers”. This means that to get 22H2 you have to go into Windows Update and explicitly say you want it. If you do not, you will receive this update instead.
