Microsoft has released Windows 11 Build 22621.2500, released under KB5031455, which introduces several improvements, adjustments and remedies to known issues.
New Section for System Components
The release preview build introduces a distinct “System Components” section in Windows 11's settings. This new-added section can be found under the “System” menu. Upon accessing this “System Components” sub-section, users can view all in-build system applications. This feature serves to isolate default system applications, making their management more convenient for users.

These updates are aimed to be a part of Windows 11 23H2, scheduled for release later this quarter. Microsoft has previously introduced several features in the Moment 4 22H2 update, and more such improvements, including the discussed system components update, will feature in the forthcoming 23H2 version.
Microsoft's endeavors to separate system applications started back in July of 2021. An update at the time saw stock apps in the Start menu icons labeled “System”, replacing the erstwhile “Microsoft”. Shortly after, in August, the company added a feature on the Windows 11 Canary channel to facilitate the easy uninstallation of such apps. However, this applied exclusively to the European Economic Area (EEA).
