Fixes in build 22623.1250

  • Task Manager:
    • You can now enter the letter F again in the search field.
    • Fixed an issue resulting in Narrator not reading some text in dialog boxes.
    • Window dragging in the search field area should now work (as it does in other areas of the title bar).
    • If you search and then press the down arrow, the keyboard focus will now move to the search results.
    • Fixed an issue where the confirmation dialog was not displayed when ending processes in the Details tab.
    • Zooming in on text should no longer result in a "View More" button without any content.
    • Fixed an issue where the keyboard focus could not be correctly set to the search box, causing Narrator to not announce that the focus was on the search box.
    • If you have the contrast theme enabled and you have selected one of the rows on the Processes page, that row should now appear highlighted.
  • Search on the taskbar:
    • Fixed an issue where the search field would sometimes unexpectedly disappear when you clicked on it, leaving a blank space on the taskbar.
    • Fixed an issue that caused the search field to move slightly to the side when clicking on it.
    • If the taskbar is set to auto-hide, pressing the Windows key and starting to type text will no longer hide the taskbar unexpectedly.
