Windows 11 update KB5017846

These are the fixes that the Windows team is shipping with builds 22622.590 and 22621.590.

Build 22622.590

These changes only apply for build 22622.590:

File Explorer

  • Fixed an issue causing a small percentage of Insiders to experience repeated explorer.exe crashes after attempting to access certain folders on their systems in the previous Beta Channel build.
  • As a one-time change to help people find their folders with the navigation pane updates, if the default folders pinned to File Explorer’s navigation pane had been unpinned, they will be re-pinned after upgrading.
  • Fixed a recent issue where if File Explorer was open when you switched between light and dark mode, you could end up with some unreadable text / UI showing the wrong color.
  • Fixed an issue where the New / Sort / View / etc buttons in the command bar could become noticeably clipped vertically after increasing your text scaling in Accessibility Settings.
  • The search box background should no longer unexpectedly have a dark background sometimes when you’re using light mode.
  • If you move the keyboard focus to the tab row (using F6), pressing the arrow keys to move the keyboard focus within the row will now include setting focus to the close button within the tab.
  • If File Explorer is maximized and the taskbar is set to autohide, hovering your mouse on the bottom of the screen should bring up the taskbar.
  • Fixed a memory leak that was happening when closing File Explorer windows.
  • Fixed a GDI objects leak when resizing the navigation pane in File Explorer, which could potentially lead to content in File Explorer not rendering correctly over time for Insiders who resized the navigation pane frequently.


  • The taskbar overflow flyout should now follow your accent color like the rest of the taskbar does when “Show accent color on Start and taskbar” is enabled under Settings > Personalization > Colors.
  • The apps in the taskbar overflow flyout should now be in the correct order when using an Arabic or Hebrew display language.
  • When the taskbar is center aligned and full, the widgets entry point will now collapse to a shorter width to give you more room on the taskbar.
  • Fixed a couple of issues related to the taskbar overflow, which could lead to sporadic explorer.exe crashes.

Other changes

  • Fixed the issue causing Control Panel to not launch from the Start menu, Search, or if pinned to the taskbar in the previous flight.
  • Disabled the ability to share a local file directly to OneDrive using the built-in Windows share window that began rolling out to Windows Insiders with Build 22622.436.

Build 22622.590 and 22621.590

These changes apply for both builds:

  • Fixed an issue that affects “cldflt.sys.” A bugcheck occurs when it is used with Microsoft OneDrive.
  • Fixed an issue that affects robocopy. Robocopy fails to set a file to the right modified time when using the /IS
