Windows 11 update KB5017390

These are the fixes that the Windows team is shipping with builds 22622.598 and 22621.598.

Build 22622.598

These changes only apply for build 22622.598:

File Explorer

  • Fixed an issue leading to a small set of Insiders with “launch folder windows in a separate process” not being able to launch File Explorer in the last two flights due to an explorer.exe crash.

  • Fixed an issue where you couldn’t interact with the top part of File Explorer (with the address bar) when File Explorer was full screen (F11).

  • Fixed an issue where command bar items like copy, paste, and empty recycle bin may unexpectedly not be enabled when they should be.


  • Temporarily, you will no longer be able to uninstall apps with inter-dependencies (for example, Steam and gaming apps running on Steam) or repair Win32 apps under Settings > Apps > Installed apps. You will still be able to modify and uninstall Win32 apps without inter-dependencies.

Build 22622.598 and 22621.598

These changes apply for both builds:

  • Fixed an issue that creates a duplicate print queue. Because of this, the original print queue stops working.

  • Fixed an issue that affects Roaming User Profiles. After you sign in or sign out, some of your settings are not restored.

Install build 22622.598

If you want to download and install the Windows 11 build 22622.598, you need to enroll your device in the Beta Channel using the “Windows Insider Program” settings from the “Update & Security” section.

Once you enroll the computer in the program, you can download build 22622.598 from the “Windows Update” settings by clicking the Check for Updates button. However, you will need a device that meets the minimum system requirements to receive the update if you are new to the Windows Insider Program. If the device receives build 22621.598, you can check again for updates to download build 22622.598.
