Microsoft pushed Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22454.1000 (rs_prerelease) to the Dev Channel users. Dev Channel is meant to receive build directly from the developer’s team. Dev channel users are expected to get new features in advance than Beta Channel but its build feature may not work properly at times.
Windows 11 Build 22454.1000 will follow the next build version to the previous Windows 11 22449 builds. All the features in the Dev Channel build are not expected to appear in the first public release of Windows 11 on 5th October 2021.
Also, Windows 11 Taskbar is not Centered in this Build so think twice before updating. I literally came back to the previous build 22449.
