Microsoft has released new Windows 11 version 22H2 builds 22621.1245 and 22623.1245. They are available via the KB5022358 update to Insiders on the Beta channel. They traditionally follow the new feature shipping pattern:
- Build 22623.1245 - New feature testing available.
- Build 22621.1245 - New features disabled by default.
If you are in a group with features disabled by default (build 22621.xxx), then check for updates and install an optional update that will make these features available and move you to the build 22623.xxx branch.
Here are the key changes.
Snipping Tool with video recording pause is now available in the Beta channel
Microsoft has begun rolling out an updated version of the Snipping Tool for Windows 11 that adds the ability to pause video recording of your computer screen. In addition, the labels on the "Snip" and "Record" buttons have been removed, and the controls for setting up the area for recording video have been changed. The new version of the application is 11.2212.24.0.
