If you’re on Windows 10 22H2 in the Windows Insider Release Preview channel, there’s a new build for you, 19045.2907.  (update: as noted in the blog post, Microsoft got this wrong, the build number is actually 19045.2908). This new build adds three new improvements:

  • New! This update adds the ability to sync language and region settings when you change your Microsoft account display language or regional format. Windows will save those settings to your account if you have turned on Language preferences sync in your Windows backup settings.
  • New! This update changes firewall settings. You can now configure application group rules.
  • New! This update brings back the search box experience on the Windows 10 taskbar. If you have a top, bottom, regular, or small icons taskbar, you will see the search box appear. You can use it to easily access apps, files, settings, and more from Windows and the web. You will also have access to the latest search updates, such as search highlights. If you want to restore your original search experience, you can do that easily by using the context menu or responding to a dialog that appears when you use search.

Along with these new changes, there are also a number of issues that have been addressed, so be sure to check out the Windows Insider blog post for all the details.
