Taskbar drag and drop Explorer crash issue fixed in Windows 11 build 23541 and more

Published on

Microsoft, today, released the newest build to Windows 11 Dev Channel Insiders. The new build, 23541, fixes many bugs such as one where dragging app icons on the taskbar would cause File Explorer to crash, though Microsoft confirms that there are also some new File Explorer bugs. There is also a Microsoft Store update.

The full changelog for the new build appears below:

changes and improvements

[Start menu]

  • A rich preview of thumbnails (tips) for cloud files under Recommended in the Start menu and the ability to right-click to share these files rolled with Building 23511 May be temporarily gone for some Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel.



  • Fixed an issue where dragging app icons on the taskbar could sometimes cause explorer.exe to crash.

[Search on the Taskbar]

  • Fixed an issue where sometimes the tooltip when hovering over the search box did not match the current search highlight.

[Dev Drive]

  • Fixed an issue where a boot folder path could not be pasted into the dialog when creating a new Dev drive.

Note: Some fixes noted here in Insider Preview builds from the Dev channel may make it into the service updates for the released version of Windows 11.
