[Start menu]
  • If the touch keyboard is docked it should no longer unexpectedly dismiss when trying to edit the name of a folder in Start.

  • Fixed a typo in the “Minimize on use” tooltip.
  • If you’ve hidden the graphs on the side of the Performance page, the color of the circles used instead should now match the graph in the summary view.

[Windows Sandbox]
  • Removed the Lock option in Start menu as it didn’t work.
[Other]

Announcing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25131

Microsoft Store Update (Version 22205.1401.3.0)

An update to Microsoft Store for Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel is beginning to be rolled out with the following changes and improvements:
  • Native Arm64 support: We’ve improved the Microsoft Store app experience on ARM64 devices. You’ll see faster and better performance when you use the app.
  • Improved app updates: We improved automatic updates for your apps. We’ll skip over apps that you have open, so you don’t lose any important work. You can update the apps later in the Microsoft Store.
  • Improved Android apps support for the pop-pup store experience: When you’re browsing the web, you might discover a new app. If it’s available in the Microsoft Store, we’ll show you a pop-up experience to help you install it. This experience now supports free Android apps (depending on device compatibility and age rating).
  • Faster navigation: We have improved the browsing experience.
Fixes

[General]
  • Fixed an issue causing some Insider PCs with certain AMD processors to bugcheck and roll back when attempting to upgrade to last week’s flight. This issue is also believed to be the cause of some Insiders experiencing a bugcheck after enabling SVM in the bios on their PCs in the last build.
  • Fixed an issue which was causing some Insiders with secondary accounts on their PC to not be able to upgrade to the latest builds.
[File Explorer]
  • The new folder icon used in the command bar should be consistent with the one used in the context menu now.
  • Fixed an issue which could lead to File Explorer hanging when browsing folders with lots of .mkv files.
  • Fixed an issue which was causing searching from Home to not return any results sometimes from the Open or Save dialog (when doing it from File Explorer returned results).
[Search]
  • Searching for something like %appdata% should now show a proper folder icon and not just a blank square.
  • When selecting “Open file location” for a search result, it should now select the file in the folder again now, and not just open the folder.
[Settings]
  • Searching for “default” will now return the default apps Settings page as the first result, and not require you to click “show all results” in order to see it.
  • Fixed an issue where the “Listen to this device” audio option would stop working after a reboot until being unchecked and rechecked.
  • Narrator will now read out the position of the radio buttons in the Settings > Accessibility > Color filters page to make it easier to navigate.
[Other]
  • Hovering over “Do you like what you see?” when using Windows Spotlight on the lock screen should no longer display a shadow which extends to the bottom of the screen.
  • Fixed an issue which was leading to certain frame rate monitoring applications impacting game performance.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause rounded corners to unexpectedly become pixelated at certain scale factors.

Announcing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25140

ISOs for this build can be downloaded here.

Changes and Improvements

[General]
  • Euphemia typeface covers most languages that use the Canadian Syllabic script including various Cree orthographies, Inuktitut, and the Carrier/Dakelh script (dulkw’ahke). In the latest Insider builds, we’ve updated this font to improve the legibility and screen rendering of over 200 characters at various sizes. We’ve also added new glyphs to support Unicode 14 characters for the Nattilik language of the Canadian arctic.
Fixes

[File Explorer]
  • Fixed an issue which was leading some people to unexpectedly see error 0x80070026 when copying files from network drives.
  • Fixed an issue where the active tab color didn’t match the command bar below it.
  • Fixed an issue where dragging to rearrange tabs wasn’t working sometimes.
  • Fixed an issue which could cause artifacts in the windows thumbnail preview in the taskbar if File Explorer was maximized and you used WIN + M to minimize it.
[Settings]

  • Setting language bar hotkeys for switching input directly to specific non-IME input method should work now.
  • Some languages don’t support the speech recognition FOD. When an admin user tried to install one of those languages using the new Install-Language CopyToSettings command, some settings such as new user account locale, Input (Keyboard), and UPLL (User Preferred Language List) were not getting updated. This issue has now been fixed.
  • Fixed an issue causing Batang, BatangChe, Gungsuh, and GungsuhChe fonts to not render Korean correctly when using Office online apps when these fonts were not locally present on your PC.
