  • Microsoft launched a new build for insiders on the Beta channel.
  • Billed as KB5025308, several issues have ridden the latest update.
  • One of them is a little bug on File Explorer where a certain shortcut doesn’t work

Just like what Microsoft did with Build 23440 on the Dev channel and Build 25346 on Canary, Redmond officials also rolled out KB5025308 for Windows 11 insiders who’d signed up for the Beta channel. 

Dubbed KB5025308, the new build, as usual, brings a lot of fixes and improvements here and there. Perhaps you may remember our coverage of the new WinAppSDK-powered File Explorer, and Redmond officials have addressed crashes within this update. 

However, as noted from the tech giant’s changelog on the blog, insiders who have access keys in File Explorer may see a little bit of malfunction there. The build reportedly blocks Shift + Right-click on a file or folder from opening Show More options. By default, the option should summon the classic right-click menu, but it just doesn’t work on some users. 

Additionally, Microsoft also added that live captions users on ARM64 devices may see difficulties in adding a language through the Language & Region settings page and more. 

So, what other features are coming within this update? They can’t be all that bad, can they? Here’s what we got so far. 

What other features are coming in Windows 11 KB5025308?

Changes and Improvements in Build 22624.1616

[Live captions]

  • Languages support has been expanded to include Danish, English (Ireland), French (Canada), Korean, Portuguese (Portugal).

Fixes in Build 22624.1616


  • Turning on the new toggle under Settings > Windows Update for “getting the latest updates as soon as they are available” introduced in the previous build should now offer a “Windows configuration update” offered via Windows Update for Insiders on Build 22624. This update is designed to help us make sure this new toggle is connected to our backend services correctly. A Update Stack Package update (version 413.2122.0) is required.
  • Fixed an underlying issue which was causing a noticeable increase in explorer.exe crashes in the last flight for some Insiders.


  • Fixed an issue where the touch keyboard didn’t correctly recognize a hardware keyboard was available in some cases.
  • Updated the TextInput/EnableTouchKeyboardAutoInvokeInDesktopMode MDM policy to allow “2” as a valid value to enforce showing the touch keyboard on tapping an edit control even when the hardware keyboard is attached.

[Live captions]

  • Fixed an issue that was causing live captions to crash on first launch due to an issue impacting registry data retrieval.
  • Fixed an issue causing live captions’ Add a language menu icon and label to overlap.
  • Features have been added to the enhanced speech recognition language files to improve performance and provide out-of-language filtering meant to limit the incorrect captions for speech not in the caption language.


  • Fixed an issue that was leaving voice access’s window empty after opening.
  • Fixed an issue where voice access was crashing when using the command to go to the start of a document.
  • Fixed an issue where if you turn off the profanity filter in voice access, it wouldn’t work.
  • Fixed an issue where Narrator’s Ctrl + Home and Ctrl + End commands to move to the top and bottom of the web page weren’t working correctly in Edge.
