Windows 11 Build 22621.755 just rolled out in preview. The update includes a long list of general improvements as well as some notable changes. The Microsoft Account experience in Settings improves with the update, as does the backup experience when using a Microsoft Account. It also includes a new Task Manager shortcut from the Taskbar. 

Microsoft lists the new features from the build in a complete changelog (opens in new tab). While not officially listed, it is possible to enable a few hidden features in this build. Neowin highlighted that you can turn on the tablet-optimized Taskbar in Windows 11 22621.755 if you use the correct tools. Doing so could result in instability, however.
