      I’m not seeing it offered as a Windows Update yet on this computer.

          Do you allow preview updates ?

          Yes, indeedie, and usually install them (unless I am otherwise occupied).

          I’m surprised this one hasn’t shown yet.

            Task Manager might not display in expected colors

            After installing KB5020044, Task Manager might display certain elements in the user interface (UI) in unexpected colors. On affected devices, Task Manager should function as expected but some parts of the UI might not be readable. You might be affected by this issue if you have “Choose your mode” set to “Custom”, in the Personalization -> colors section of Settings. If you are using Dark or Light for the “Choose your mode” setting, you should not be affected by this issue.

            Workaround: To mitigate this issue, you can set the “Choose your mode” setting to either Dark or Light until this issue is resolved. To do this, right click or long press on the desktop, select “Personalize”, select “Colors”, and then select either “Dark” or “Light” for “Choose your mode”.

            Next steps: We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release…

              Another option, if that does happen, use processHacker2 as a replacement Task Manager until fixed (within settings of processHacker2 portable/installed)

      Hardened Windows user here.  Downloaded and installed

      KB5020044 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 Version 22H2 for x64-based Systems.

      It was not presented as a Preview.  No hiccups.  Now running Windows 11 Pro Version 22H2 (OS Build 22621.900)

      It did re-install Edge, but Revo Uninstaller took care of that quickly.

      Create a fresh drive image before making system changes/Windows updates, in case you need to start over!

      No party. No joy. I’ve downloaded the update from the catalog and will install it over the next several days.

      Here is the good stuff you can enable in Windows 11 22621.900

      A brand-new Settings section with energy recommendations

      Improvements for Task Manager: a search bar, improved theme support, modernized UI bits

    • #2506533

      I updated both of my Windows 11 machines this week and both machines have the problem with the task manager not being useable to any extent.  I’ve attached a screen grab of it to share.  I assume it will be fixed some time down the road.  Meanwhile I have a number of utility programs that provide the same or better information that I’ll use.

      Could you explain what you mean by not usable. The tabs that used to be across the top are now hieroglyphs down the side in the upper left-hand corner. Hover with your mouse over each hieroglyph to see what it does.

        I had the same experience. I had to change the Theme under Settings\Personalization to be able to see anything in Task Manager. It messed up many of the settings.

        • #2506563

          PKCano… I did play around with the settings too to be able to see the task manager in “light” mode, but then my task bar became pale white.  I decided to just be “stubborn” and wait for  MS to fix it.  As I mentioned I have other tools to see what’s going on with the machine.

      • #2506561

        Yes, you are quite right….  However I’m 74 and my eyesight isn’t as sharp as it was.  I’m not going to (my words) “stumble” my way through the app to find what I need.  I have other apps that I can use to find out what is going on with my machine.  I just thought I’d share an image of what the problem looked like.

          Egyptian Hieroglyphs with approximately 900 signs date from approximately 2800 BC.

          See what 5,000 years of progress does?
