Microsoft has released Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25231 to Windows insiders in the dev channel.





Announcing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25231

Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25231 to the Dev Channel. 

Changes and Improvements

[General]

  • The change that began rolling out with  Build 25179 to the spelling dictionary so that it now uses a language-neutral word list and syncs across all devices that use the same Windows account is now available to all Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. Users can toggle this feature via Settings > Accounts > Windows backup > Remember my preferences > Language preferences. This currently only works with Microsoft accounts today with AAD support coming later.

[Tablet-optimized taskbar]

  • Tablet-optimized taskbar which began rolling out with  Build 25197 is now available to all Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel, as is the System Tray improvements that began rolling out with  Build 25211 that include drag and drop.

[Input]

  • The cloud suggestion feature Simplified Chinese IME that began rolling out with  Build 25217 is now available for all Insiders in the Dev Channel.

Fixes

[System Tray]

  • When moving your mouse over the sound icon on Quick Settings, the tooltip will now display when spatial audio is in use – not just that it is enabled.

[Settings]

  • Removed the backplate from UWP app icons in Apps > Default apps and Apps > Apps for websites.
  • Fixed the font used on the Wi-Fi section of Quick Settings when Wi-Fi was off, so that it’s consistent with the other text in Quick Settings
  • Fixed an issue believed to be the root cause of certain network cameras unexpectedly not being added when you selected them under Bluetooth & Devices > Cameras.
  • Improved DPI-awareness when launching setup.exe from a mounted ISO, so the initial logo while it’s preparing should no longer be blurry in certain cases.

[Other]

  • Fixed a rare issue where  FindWindow and  FindWindowEx might return an unexpected window.
  • Fixed an issue where sometimes you wouldn’t be able to use FIDO to unlock your PC if it was connected to an external display with the laptop lid closed.
  • Fixed an issue which sometimes led to crashes in certain apps (like Paint, and Windows Terminal) when attempting to display a tooltip.

NOTE: Some fixes noted here in Insider Preview builds from the Dev Channel may make their way into the servicing updates for the released version of Windows 11.
