Microsoft needs your help to polish and fix Windows 11

On March 9, 2022, Microsoft released Windows build 22572 with several improvements and a hidden gem–a tabbed interface in File Explorer. Microsoft also announced an upcoming Bug Bash, a special event for finding bugs in the operating system. The first Bug Bash of 2022 is now live, and you can participate in helping Microsoft polish Windows 11 before its first feature update arrives.

To participate in Windows 11 Bug Bash, you need to download the newest Windows 11 preview build from the Dev channel (22572). Next, fire up the Feedback Hub and navigate to the Quests section. You will find there 26 different tasks to perform on your computer. Some of those quests include testing drag-and-drop on the taskbar, using Quick Settings, Snap Layouts, the revamped Do Not Disturb mode, connecting Bluetooth devices using the updated flyout, etc.

You can share your feedback and findings with Microsoft after completing the quests. The software giant will use your telemetry data to track bugs, instabilities, and other rough surfaces to polish and improve in future updates. Hopefully, this will help Microsoft make Windows 11 less buggy and more enjoyable to use.

Currently, the Feedback Hub app offers about 26 quests to complete, but you can expect Microsoft to add more during the event (March 16 to 22). Those participating in Bug Bash will receive a special achievement badge for their profiles in the Feedback Hub.
