KB5005642 Windows 11 Build 22000.184

Windows 11 insider has received a new build with bug fixes in OOBE and Translation. However, this Beta channel update is having remarkably a good number of known issues. Windows 11 preview build 22000.184 (KB5005642 cumulative update) is the update you can check right now.

You might have remembered that the date of the official release of Windows 11 is October 5, 2021, but the system will not have all the features that were announced in July. Worth attention: the company has postponed the introduction of support for Android applications, so it is likely to appear only in 2022. Also, don’t forget to check the minimum system requirements for Windows 11.

Windows Sandbox

  1. Clicking on the icon for switching keyboard layout from the taskbar does not open it. So switch the language via any of the shortcuts on your physical keyboard – Ctrl + Shift, Alt + Shift, or Win + Space (the 3rd option is only available in Windows Sandbox full-screen mode).
  2. The Input Method Editor context menu does not open after clicking on the respective icon in the taskbar. So, access them using one of the following ways –
  3. Go to Options => Time and language => Language and region and click on the three dots next to the desired language. Now, choose  Language Options (for example, Microsoft IME) => Ellipsis => Keyboard Options.
  4. Alternatively, enable the Input Method Editor toolbar, which is an alternative UI for instantly accessing certain IME functions. Follow the guide above and then navigate to Keyboard Options => Appearance => Use IME Toolbar.
  5. Otherwise, you can also use unique keyboard shortcuts that are associated with each language that supports IME (Traditional Chinese IME Shortcuts, Japanese IME Shortcuts ).
