The February 2022 update bumps the version number to build 22000.493, and according to the official notes, fixes problems with Taskbar and File Explorer, and it adds a new “Your Microsoft Account” page and introduces a new “HelpWith” feature for the Settings app. In addition, the update KB5010386 also ships with all the changes and fixes that Microsoft announced with the January 2022 C release preview.

Windows 11 update KB5010386 changes

Here are all the new features, improvements, and fixes with the February 2022 update for Windows 11. The update adds a new “Your Microsoft Account” page to view your Microsoft account information in the Accounts settings category. In addition, the page offers details about your Microsoft 365 subscription, order history, payment details, and Microsoft Rewards. Windows 11 build 22000.493 also adds a new feature known as “HelpWith” that uses Bing to suggest help topics in the Settings app. For instance, on the “Display” page, you will find the “Help with Display” section that includes different help topics. When you click the link, Microsoft Edge will open to show you the solution without any additional search results using Bing. As part of the Taskbar improvements, build 22000.493 fixes an issue that affects the auto-hide feature, which may prevent the Taskbar from reliably appearing in a multi-monitor display. The update also resolves app icons displaying as if they were open when they are not, muted volume when the system is not muted, and problems displaying icons in the Taskbar across displays. In addition, this update brings an updated version of File Explorer with better performance when selecting and browsing files. The notes also point out fixes for audio and outdated battery percentage on Bluetooth devices, improves auto-brightness control in low light conditions, and issues to render color correctly on HDR displays. It is worth noting that in this update only a subset of the features is rolling out. Things like the ability to mute and unmute calls and share a window in calls, the redesigned Widgets icons with weather information, and the redesigned Notepad and Media Player apps will arrive separately. Here’s the complete list of non-security changes available with the update KB5010386 that Microsoft announced during the January 2022 update preview:
