In accordance with Microsoft’s weekly schedule, this week they released a new update for Windows 11 Insider Dev and Beta users, where specifically for the Beta Channel itself, the update that was presented was update KB5022918.
With the KB5022918 update itself, the OS build will change to 22621.1255 (which as usual this build has new features that off by default), and 22623.1255 (with the new feature coming by default).
Now basically there is nothing new in this build, except now that the Tab feature in the Notepad application is present by default, users can simply update the Notepad application to version 11.2301.17.0 which is only available in the Microsoft Store.
