  • Windows 11 23H2 receives build 22635.2700 (KB5031452) in the Beta Channel.
  • The update only fixes an issue for desktop icons.

Windows 11 build 22635.2700 (KB5031452) is now available in the Beta Channel of the Windows Insider Program with one specific fix and one known issue for version 23H2.

According to the Microsoft announcement on the Windows Blog, the update KB5031452 fixes an issue causing the setting to turn off using drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop. 

Finally, as part of the known issues, the software giant is trying to resolve a crash issue with the Snipping Tool on ARM-based devices.

As a reminder, Microsoft is no longer splitting the Beta Channel into two different builds, and moving forward, participants of the Windows Insider Program will receive the same “22635” build through an enablement package. Also, it is important to note that the company will gradually roll out features through its Control Feature Rollout (CFR) technology, meaning that not everyone will receive all the announced features for a particular build immediately.

Install build 22635.2700

To download and install the Windows 11 build 22635.2700, 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 22635.2700 from the “Windows Update” settings by turning on the “Get the latest updates as soon as they’re available” toggle switch and 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.
