Microsoft has released Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26200 to Windows Insiders in the Canary Channel.

The build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop has been returned.  Enhancements are being made to the Widgets button located on the taskbar, which will result in icons that are more distinct and a more extensive collection of animated icons. When it comes to the Widgets board, developers now have the ability to send notifications to the taskbar button using their own custom dashboards.





Announcing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26200 (Canary Channel)

Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26200 to the Canary Channel.

Changes and Improvements

[General]

  • [REMINDER] As we’ve been  mentioning previously that would happen, the build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop has returned.

[Widgets]

  • We are also making some improvements to the Widgets button on the taskbar so that the icons on the taskbar are clearer and we are rolling out a larger set of animated icons too.
  • As part of the Widgets board improvements that we began rolling out with  Build 26090 a few weeks ago (which are now also rolling out to Insiders in the Dev Channel), we are introducing the ability for developers to send notifications to the taskbar button with their custom dashboards for the Widgets board. Developers can  check out this documentation on how to implement this capability with their Widgets dashboards. To manage notifications from multiple dashboards, Widgets is also providing more granular control over what content shows on the Widgets button on the taskbar. You can go to Widgets Settings > Notifications and enable or disable taskbar notifications from individual dashboards. NOTE: These changes are only initially available to Windows Insiders in the European Economic Area (EEA).

[Taskbar & System Tray]

  • After trying out a different design for the energy saver icon in system tray  a few months ago for PCs that are plugged in and do not have batteries (such as desktop PCs), we reverted the design back to the leaf icon a few builds ago. (This change is also present in  Build 26100.)
