Microsoft has released Windows 11 Insider Preview 22458.1000 (rs_prerelease) to the Windows Insiders on the Dev Channel and KB5005635 update to the Beta Channel. Earlier Windows 11 Build 22454 had a weird taskbar issue where icons were not in the center and rather to the bit right. Users either have to align taskbar icons to the Left, show all available icons, or go back to the previous build to make it look decent. Well, Microsoft has fixed the alignment of the icons to the center of the taskbar and also added a new Tips App with 144 tips for users.
