Update KB5022905 fixes and changes for Windows 11

These are the fixes and new features available with the latest update preview of Windows 11:

  • Added an advanced auto-learning feature for facial recognition.
  • Fixed an issue that stopped hyperlinks from working in Microsoft Excel.
  • Fixed an issue that affected the Color filters setting. When you selected Inverted, the system set it to Grayscale instead.
  • Fixed an issue that affected the Appx State Repository. When you removed a user profile, the cleanup was incomplete. Because of that, its database grew as time passes. This growth might have caused delays when users signed into multi-user environments like FSLogix.
  • We provided support for the United Mexican States’ daylight-saving time change order for 2023.
  • Fixed an issue that affected IE mode. The text on the status bar was not always visible.
  • Fixed an issue that affected the Z-order of two maximized windows. A window that was behind another window might have appeared on top.
  • Fixed an issue that affected AppV. It stopped file names from having the correct letter case (uppercase or lowercase).
  • Fixed an issue that affected Microsoft Edge. The issue removed conflicting policies for Microsoft Edge. This occurred when you set the MDMWinsOverGPFlag in a Microsoft Intune tenant and Intune detected a policy conflict.
  • Fixed an issue that affected Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). Using a provisioning package for bulk provisioning failed.
  • Fixed an issue that affected a certain streaming app. The issue stopped video playback after an advertisement played in the app.
  • Fixed an issue that affected the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS). LSASS might have stopped responding after you ran Sysprep on a domain-joined machine.
  • Fixed an issue that affected parity virtual disks. Using Server Manager to create them failed.
