Microsoft made Windows 11 Insider releases accessible to testers on the Dev and Beta channels
Microsoft just made fresh Windows 11 Insider releases accessible to testers on the Dev and Beta channels. Microsoft continues to test new features on two different groups of Insiders, therefore it is delivering two distinct updates to Beta channel testers once more.
If you’re on the Dev Channel, build 25188 from today change the checkbox in the Settings app that says “Show the touch keyboard when there’s no keyboard attached” with a new dropdown menu. Now, a select group of Insiders can select “Never,” “When no keyboard is attached,” or “Always” to regulate whether tapping an edit control will activate the touch keyboard.
With the launch of Windows 11, Microsoft is also making Windows Terminal the standard terminal. If Windows Terminal version 1.15 or higher is installed, all command-line applications (including Command Prompt and PowerShell) now open in Windows Terminal by default. By heading to Settings > Privacy & security > For developers, you can still disable this option.
Microsoft has also fixed several issues in this edition, however, there is a brand-new issue that stops apps that rely on the.NET Framework 3.5 from working properly. If your apps utilize this version of the.NET Framework, Microsoft warns against using this build.
All Insiders on the Dev Channel will see adverts in search results after Microsoft releases an update for the Microsoft Store. In search results, Microsoft Store Ads are presently being tested. The Windows Insider team says that developers who want to get on the waitlist can do so here.
The Windows 11 Beta Channel Insider releases 22621.586 and 22622.586 do not contain any new features this week. Both groups of Beta Channel testers enjoy a good range of updates, however, version 22622.586 has a few extra patches for the group whose default settings have the new features enabled.
Additionally, on Sunday, Microsoft made the Windows 11 build 22621.457 accessible to Insiders via the Release Preview Channel. Users can now view the usage history of several resources, including the Camera and the Microphone, in the Settings app. Last but not least, the updated parts include improvements for Microsoft Defender for Endpoint and SMB compression.
