Windows 11 Insider Beta Build 22635.2486 changes Xbox Game Bar to Game Bar only and more

Published on

Microsoft has just released the latest build of Windows 11 for members of the Windows Insider program for people who signed up to get a divorce in the beta channel. The new build number is 22635.2486 (KB5031459) and includes some minor changes, plus two bug fixes. It also removed an “improvement” from a previous version due to some bugs that were discovered.

Remember that Microsoft recently changed the way it releases beta channel preview components instead of releasing two separate versions with their own build numbers at the same time. Microsoft now allows users who want new features to be added gradually to click. on a new switch and turn it off.

However, Microsoft says that with this release “there are no new features or improvements that are being announced specifically for Insiders who have turned on the switch.”

Here is the chaneglog for build 22635.2486:

Changes and improvements are gradually rolling out to everyone in the beta channel

[Start menu]

  • Under All Apps in the Start Menu, Windows 11 System Components will now display a “System” label.
  • The Xbox game bar will now show up as just the game bar under the Start menu and also under Settings > System > Apps > Installed apps. This change will come via a Game Bar update via the Microsoft Store.


  • The improved screen port experience introduced with Build 22631.2129 has been temporarily disabled to fix some bugs. We plan to re-enable this in a future beta channel flight.

Fixes for everyone in the beta channel

  • Fixed an issue that caused the start menu to crash on launch if the display language was set to Czech or Slovak.
  • Fixed an issue where the search icon on the taskbar did not appear correctly for people using the search icon and label.
