2. Getting started with Protocol Handlers for your web appЧт, 20 янв[−]
Категория(?)  Автор(?)
Beginning with Microsoft Edge 96, web apps can now use Protocol Handlers in Microsoft Edge. This is a powerful feature that allows your installed web application (or PWA) to handle pre-set or custom protocols. Installed web applications can now register with the operating system as protocol handlers and launch when a specific protocol is invoked. Let’s dive into the feature to understand how developers can take advantage of it.

Typical use cases

Probably the most common protocol that we interact with is the http protocol. When we click on a link that uses this protocol, the system knows to open the web browser and navigate to the address that is specified. Another typical protocol is mailto which allows users to click on email addresses and open the default e-mail client. There are other pre-defined protocols but we can see how this concept of “URL protocol” is useful, since it tells the system about an identifier and how to access the identifier. Protocol handlers allow your web application to participate as the app in these use cases.

Benefits

By having the ability to register as protocol handlers, your web app has better integration with the operating system, and can be set to open specific protocols. It can even be set as a default handler, so if for example, the web app you are building is an email client, you can give your users the option for it to be the default application for creating new e-mails. Additionally, you can create custom schemes that your web app can handle by registering protocols that are prefixed with web+. This is useful if you require to handle a URL for which the set of safelisted schemes doesn’t fit the bill. Protocol handlers could be used for web app communication where one app directly invokes another and passes data via custom protocol links.

How-to

To register your installed web application as a protocol handler, you must use the protocol_handlers field in the manifest file. If the protocol_handlers field is present in the manifest, then during installation the web app will be registered as a protocol handler for the protocols specified in the collection. This field receives a collection of protocol and url pairs. The protocol specifies which scheme to register and the url tells the user agent which resource will process the URI.

Example

As an example we will look at the PWinter PWA. This is an installable web application that allows the user to create custom PWA logos by selecting 3 colors. The application defines the custom web+pwinter:// protocol handler in its manifest file.
"protocol_handlers": [
      {
        "protocol": "web+pwinter",
        "url": "index.html?colors=%s"
      }
    ]
With this in place and the web app installed on a desktop OS, you can now click on web+pwinter:// links on a website like web+pwinter://3D3D3D-5A0FC8-3D3D3D. This link represents the 3 colors that will be used by the installed web app for each letter. Note the value of the url key must also have a %s substring that will be replaced by the actual resource in the link. When clicking the link, the browser asks for permission to open the application, and then prompts you to confirm that you want to handle the protocol and the app you’d like to use for it. If you give permission, then the selected application opens with the specified content. Animation showing a PWA registering for and responding to protocol handlers

Feature Support

Protocol Handlers are supported in Windows, Linux and Mac, and are shipping in Microsoft Edge 96. We have contributed this work to the Chromium open-source project and the feature is now available in other Chromium based browsers too!

Related feature

This feature is similar to the JS method navigator.registerProtocolHandler(). It actually uses the same underlying steps, with the main difference being that registerProtocolHandler() is the JavaScript way of registering a website to handle protocols, while the protocol_handlers field in the manifest is the equivalent for installed web applications. On top of this, developers can specify multiple protocols without having to make repeated calls to the same method. You can learn more about Protocol Handlers with our documentation and the manifest specification. Protocol handling brings a powerful way to communicate between applications. Let us know how you are using or plan to use the feature, and any feedback you might have that can help us improve on the functionality. You can do so in the feedback tool in Microsoft Edge, or by pressing Alt+Shift+I. – Diego Gonzalez, Program Manager, Microsoft Edge

Updates for voice access

We first introduced voice access in Build 22518. Voice access is a new experience to control your PC with just voice. With today’s build, we have some updates for voice access for Windows Insiders to try out. Using touch keyboard with voice access [caption id="attachment_175465" align="alignnone" width="3840"]Numbered tear drops appearing over all keys of touch keyboard. Numbered tear drops appearing over all keys of touch keyboard.[/caption] You can use the touch keyboard with voice access to:
  • Spell words e.g., names and email addresses.
  • Enter numbers e.g., phone numbers and addresses.
  • Enter punctuation marks and symbols.
  • Enter emojis.
To do this Say this
Open touch keyboard “Show keyboard”
Hide touch keyboard “Hide keyboard”
Click a key on touch keyboard “Click [number]”, “[number]” e.g., “Click 2, “2”
You can only use the following voice access commands while using the touch keyboard:
  • Voice access on/ off commands e.g., “voice access wake up”, “voice access sleep”, “turn off microphone”, “turn off voice access”.
  • Commands to use touch keyboard e.g., “hide keyboard,” “click 2”.

Changes and Improvements

  • The updated entry point for Widgets with weather on the taskbar first introduced with Build 22518 should now be available to all Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel.
  • In ALT + TAB, Task view, and Snap assist, the focus rectangle that shows what is selected will now use your chosen accent color on your PC.
[caption id="attachment_175466" align="alignnone" width="798"]ALT + TAB showing focus rectangle with accent color. ALT + TAB showing focus rectangle with accent color.[/caption]
  • Our updated IMEs and touch keyboard designs will now show on the Lock screen and where you enter your account information such as username and password. This change is currently rolling out to a subset of Windows Insiders at first and we’ll expand over time based on feedback.

For developers

You can download the latest Windows Insider SDK at aka.ms/windowsinsidersdk. SDK NuGet packages are now also flighting at NuGet Gallery | WindowsSDK which include: These NuGet packages provide more granular access to the SDK and better integrate in CI/CD pipelines.

About the Dev Channel

We have moved the Dev Channel back to receiving builds from our active development branch (RS_PRERELEASE). These builds are from the earliest stage in a new development cycle with the latest work-in-progress code from our engineers. These aren’t always stable builds, and sometimes you will see issues that block key activities or require workarounds while flighting in the Dev Channel. It is important to make sure you read the known issues listed in our blog posts as we document many of these issues with each flight. These builds are also not matched to a specific release. New features and OS improvements from these builds could show up in future Windows releases when they’re ready, and we may deliver them as full OS updates or servicing releases. Build numbers are higher in the Dev Channel than the Windows 11 preview builds in the Beta and Release Preview Channels. You will not be able to switch from the Dev Channel to the Beta or Release Preview Channels without doing a clean install back to the released version of Windows 11 currently. Are you not seeing any of the features listed for this build? Check your Windows Insider Settings to make sure you’re in the Dev Channel. Submit feedback here to let us know if things weren’t working the way you expected. The desktop watermark you see at the lower right corner of your desktop is normal for these pre-release builds.

4. Looking back at Microsoft Edge for developers in 2021Ср, 19 янв[−]
Категория(?)  Автор(?)
2021 was an eventful year for Microsoft Edge. We built new PWA features that more deeply integrate apps with the operating system, we made PWAs easily available on the Microsoft Store, we included WebView2 by default in Windows 11 with automatic updates, we specified and implemented multiple new web features to make the most out of diverse device capabilities, and released Edge on Linux! With all this, it has never been so easy to build great applications that make the most of Microsoft Edge and open and standard web technologies. Tooling has also been a big focus for us over the past year. VS Code and DevTools became ever more integrated, with several new workflows that meaningfully improve developer productivity and comfort. These are just some of the highlights from the contributions we made to Chromium and numerous improvements to Edge’s user experience. Let’s dive in!

Web Platform

Our team is deeply invested in advancing the state of the web platform to empower developers to achieve their vision on the web. Since 2018, Microsoft has made over 6,300 commits to the Chromium open-source project to fix bugs and add new capabilities for web developers to leverage in their sites and apps. In 2021, we landed several APIs that started out as explainers such as CSS Modules, the EyeDropper API, Delegated Ink, the Virtual Keyboard API, and the HapticsDevice API. Let’s start with CSS Modules. CSS suffers from a few limitations that tend to make it hard to work with a UI component library. Over the years, the dev community came up with conventions and frameworks that help, but the language itself never changed to address these limitations. CSS Modules improve the platform by extending the JavaScript module infrastructure to also work with CSS. JavaScript components can use this to download and apply the styles they need, allowing better dependency management. Another one is the EyeDropper API, which allows creative applications to instantiate an eye dropper tool that can sample colors from anywhere on the screen. This was previously impossible to do on the web. Using an came close but it was harder to customize and didn't provide a cross-browser way to let users pick colors. With this new platform specification, and the corresponding implementation in Chromium, we're hopeful that all browsers will support it soon. Windows One of our big areas of interest in 2021 was making it easier to integrate with all sorts of device capabilities. For example, we introduced a new specification, and implemented in Chromium, a way to greatly reduce web inking latency. Relying on predicting where the next points would be located, and leveraging OS-backed APIs to help reduce inking latency on Windows, this feature makes drawing on a canvas with a touch device feel much more natural. Animation showing inking in a sample web app We also worked on the Virtual Keyboard API to help applications know when and where the virtual keyboard is visible, and avoid getting their viewport resized to account for it. Instead, apps can now remain full screen, but know where the keyboard is, and reorganize their content accordingly. This is particularly interesting for dual screen devices where the keyboard can be on one screen while content is unaffected on the other screen. Finally, our work on the HapticsDevice API will help web apps use the full capabilities of haptic-enabled surfaces of the devices they run on, and no longer be limited to the simpler navigator.vibrate() function, allowing for richer responses to user interactions. While this was originally implemented in Microsoft Edge to coincide with the Surface Slim Pen 2 launch, we are currently working with folks in Chromium to land this upstream and have plans to expand this beyond pen-based interactions to include input devices such as gamepads.

Edge on Linux

2021 was also the year where Microsoft Edge became generally available on Linux via our stable channel! This is a major milestone in our commitment to be available on all operating systems that developers use. Microsoft Edge on Linux

Tooling

Developer tooling was an important part of our work in 2021. This year we focused a lot of our time on making the tools you already know and love easier to use, more personal, and better integrated with each other. With VS Code being a tool of choice for many web developers, we wanted to improve your lives when debugging issues. Our Microsoft Edge Tools for VS Code extension gained several new features that help bridge the gap between your debugging and authoring workflows, such as opening DevTools source files in VS Code, mirroring CSS changes between DevTools and VS Code, and better browser screencast in VS Code. Screenshot of the Edge Tools for VS Code extension The VS Code extension and the browser DevTools now integrate with webhint to provide real time feedback and recommended fixes for major web development pitfalls and pain points, such as accessibility and cross-browser compatibility. Making the tools easier to use for everyone is something we care about. On this front, we made a few changes to DevTools to make it easy to open, close, and move tabs so you can focus on the tools you need most, but still be able to access other ones quickly. We made it even easier to customize DevTools too. You can now set your preferred language for the tools directly from the settings, or customize your keyboard shortcuts, or even choose from a dozen new color themes. Finally, we released a preview of Focus Mode, a new UI paradigm that reduces clutter with a more modern and simplified layout. Screenshot of the Edge DevTools in Focus Mode You can find more of our latest changes directly within DevTools by using the Welcome tab. You can also check our What’s New announcement pages. Tools for automated browser testing saw several welcome improvements as well. The latest release of Selenium 4 offers built-in support for the Microsoft Edge browser without the need for separate plug-ins or libraries. Additionally, you can now automate Edge on Linux with Microsoft Edge Driver as well as Edge in Internet Explorer (IE) mode with IEDriver for testing legacy websites or apps.

Progressive Web Apps

In addition to evolving the core web platform and developer tools, Progressive Web Apps saw the debut of several new features in 2021: URL handling, Protocol handling, and Window Controls Overlay, which were all made available as origin trials for developers to try in production. Protocol Handling allows PWAs to be launched by the operating system when certain registered (or custom) protocols are used. For example, your app can register to handle the mailto scheme and whenever the user navigates to a URL that uses it, the OS will present your app as one of the possible apps to handle the navigation. Protocol handling is available to all starting with Microsoft Edge 96. Animation showing a web app reacting to a URL Handling is a feature that also makes it possible for apps to be more integrated with the operating system. Apps can register to handle certain links, typically their own, so that the app opens up instead of the website when a user navigates to the registered link. Just like with Protocol Handling, the user is in control of the experience here: the app is proposed by the OS as a possible choice among others, and it is up to the user to decide and set their preferred defaults. The great benefit of contributing these features to Chromium is the ability to partner with other stakeholders in Project Fugu and, together, help make PWAs much more powerful and closer to what people expect installed apps to be capable of. There’s another PWA feature we worked on this year that’s expected to make a difference in how PWAs look: Window Controls Overlay. This UX change allows users to opt-in to hide the app title bar. This seemingly small change has great design implications: apps can now make use of the entire surface area of the window, and blend in with the maximize, minimize and close buttons, displaying their own content where the title bar used to be. Learn more about this feature here. Animation showing a PWA with a custom titlebar using the Windows Controls Overlay Finally, thanks to the PWABuilder project, it’s easy to submit your apps to the Microsoft Store where millions of users can discover and install them. Stay up to date with the latest changes with our PWA What’s New page.

WebView2

Before jumping into the 2021 highlights we wanted to thank you for your questions, comments, feature requests and bug reports on our WebView2 feedback repository. With more than 1000 reports in 2021, you actively helped shape WebView2! The first highlight for this year is that it’s now even easier than before to build your app using the Evergreen Runtime distribution mode. The Evergreen WebView2 runtime is now part of the operating system starting with Windows 11. For developers who need to distribute their apps on prior OS versions, the runtime installers have also been updated with capability to install without elevation. For Enterprises that need to manage a restricted network, WebView2 updates are also added to the already familiar Windows Server Update Services catalogue so that Enterprises can still get the benefit of Evergreen without affecting their network setup. In addition to the Win32 C/C++ and WPF/WinForms support shipped last year, WebView2 in WinUI 3 became generally available this year enabling a new class of apps. WinUI 2 and UWP WebView2 is now also available as a developer preview. Performance is key for apps, and whether they use embedded web content shouldn't change this. To help with this, our team shipped the new TrySuspend/Resume APIs this year which allow developers to suspend webviews when they’re not needed and therefore preserve memory. On top of the above, we have been working with our developer community and added new APIs capabilities every 6 weeks (and now even faster with our 4-week release cadence). Here are a few examples. The Download APIs allow customizing the download experience, letting your app display the downloaded content any way it chooses. The ContextMenu APIs allow customizing the contextual menu in WebView2 so that it has the same look and feel as the rest of your app. We also added the DefaultBackgroundColor APIs to specify the background color and transparency of the WebView2 control. Watch our release notes or subscribe to our Announcement repo to stay tuned for the latest development.

Get in touch

We hope these improvements make web developers’ lives better, and that you’ll build great apps based on these features, tools, and APIs. We couldn’t have done it without your help, comments, questions, and feedback. So, as always, please don’t hesitate to tell us what you think about Microsoft Edge by using the Settings and more > Help and feedback > Send feedback tool (or just press Alt+Shift+I). – Patrick Brosset, Senior Program Manager, Microsoft Edge

7. Windows 11 powers a new generation of devices for education’s changing landscapeВт, 18 янв[−]
Категория(?)  Автор(?)
I am so inspired by the continued innovation from our partners, who are finding new ways to meet the ever-changing needs of students, faculty and administration. As schools continue to navigate change, many are finding that one size does not fit all, and as a result are adopting a variety of hybrid learning approaches and embracing remote learning. The value that technology can deliver to unlock these capabilities is impressive. Of course, it’s great seeing Windows 11 at the center of it all, with new tools designed to improve the learning experience and enable better, richer learning experiences. Schools are still expanding and creating new ways of teaching and learning, and I love how the education community is leveraging technology to help students not only survive, but thrive. New devices drive reliable, secure, powerful learning with Windows 11 While education has fundamentally changed in recent years, Microsoft remains steadfast in our promise to support students’ and educators’ needs today and in the future. Windows 11 delivers a powerful yet simplified, clean and fluid design aimed at making communicating and collaborating easier. The introduction of Windows 11 SE in November ushered in a new era of education. Designed and built during the pandemic to address the most fundamental challenges that schools face in the blended learning world, it brings performance enhancements that optimize resources on low-cost devices to deliver more comprehensive learning experiences, and is simple to deploy and manage. Our partners are building a broad portfolio of Windows 11 SE devices that are now starting to become available globally. Educators will find many choices of form factors to meet students’ needs at price points to fit any budget. Anywhere, anytime learning is here to stay. As schools and systems constantly shift and evolve to meet the needs of their students and families, Microsoft and our partners will be there to help address the biggest challenges in education. These new devices support more engaging, collaborative and accessible learning for all, and that translates to providing the best tools for inclusive and equitable education. Let’s look at the range of Windows 11 devices that our partners are bringing to market for education: Acer TravelMate Spin B3 open and in tent mode in front of same device propped up in tablet mode Acer has been working closely with Microsoft in order to provide devices for pilot programs that bring Windows 11 SE to schools around the world. It is one of the first brands to carry devices powered by Windows 11 SE, starting with Acer TravelMate Spin B3 laptop. This 11.6-inch device was built to survive the K-12 school-day in the classroom and at home: with military-grade durability to withstand drops, shock-absorbent bumpers, well-secured keys and drainage to protect internal components from moderate spills. It comes with the latest Intel Pentium Silver and Celeron processors, a webcam, 10-hour battery life and Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) with 2x2 MU-MIMO technology to help with connectivity in multi-user environments. Another Acer laptop powered by Windows 11 SE: the TravelMate B3. ASUS BR1100F open and floating, back to back forming six sides For students of all ages, ASUS BR1100F, powered by Windows 11 SE, is a learning companion with a tough, innovative design that’s made to last. It’s been built to withstand knocks, bumps, drops and spills without damage, whether it’s dropped from a classroom desk or the dining table. In addition to a versatile touchscreen display and stylus, there’s also an ultra-tough 360-degree hinge and a world-facing camera. Other protective features include an all-round rubber bumper and spill-resistant keyboard. BR1100F also supports up to Wi-Fi 6 and optional 4G LTE for fast connectivity, and has AI-powered noise-canceling technology for high-quality remote learning and conferencing. A modular design makes it easy to service and antibacterial treatment on the cover, keyboard, touchpad and palm rest helps keep it clean. Empower boundless learning with the Dell Latitude 3120 and 3120 2-in-1 for Education, powered by Windows 11 SE. Built with a new chassis design, 11-inch display, Intel Celeron Quad-Core and Pentium Quad-Core Processors, extended battery life and ExpressCharge – which will charge the device up to 80% in about an hour – students can confidently power through every lesson uninterrupted. Optional Wi-Fi 6 empowers faster speed, increased capacity and better power efficiency. Laser etching on the front and back covers provides enhanced grip to help prevent drops and slipping. On the 2-in-1, Dragontrail Pro glass provides scratch resistance, as well as better protection if the system is dropped on its corners. Engage students with the optional world-facing camera, which provides dual camera support that enables flipped viewing and recording angles. Students who want to write, take notes or draw diagrams from any angle or mode – flat, tent, tablet or laptop – can add on the optional Dell Active Pen. Dynabook E10-S open and facing left Expertly designed for remote and hybrid learning, the Dynabook E10-S is a full-featured, 11.6-inch Windows 11 SE laptop that could be the perfect tool for students and their careers. Backed by 35 years of helping students get the most from their education, Dynabook (formerly Toshiba PC Company) equips the compact and lightweight device with a backpack-safe, reinforced chassis with bumpers, 180-degree hinges and spill-resistant keyboard with mechanically anchored keys to endure daily classroom use. With its efficient Intel processor, solid state storage and array of ports, including USB-C, the Dynabook E10 easily keeps pace with the curriculum. The laptop’s long-lasting battery helps power students through their day and tackle their homework. All this comes at an affordable price. Also check out the Dynabook Satellite Pro E10S, powered by Windows 11. HP ProBook Fortis 14 G9 notebook open and facing forward HP has introduced new laptops to help students stay productive in the classroom, at home or on the go – or a blend of all three environments. At the forefront is the HP ProBook Fortis 14-inch G9 Notebook, powered by Windows 11 SE. Built for the greater demands being placed on today’s students, this device features a 14-inch diagonal display giving them more screen to stay productive – whether it’s taking notes while watching a lecture or creating visual stories with ease. Students can also see their work more clearly with brighter anti-glare displays. This notebook help students move confidently through their day as they access assignments and apps seamlessly with Wi-Fi 6. With learning taking place in so many different places, devices are susceptible to more drops, bumps and spills. Technology that can withstand the rigors of wherever learning takes place is paramount. With a starting weight of 3.70 pounds, the textured surface makes it easier for students of all ages to grip and handle the lightweight devices. The reinforced power and USB-C ports limit damage from accidentally tugged cables, while the mechanically reinforced corners and co-molded rubber trims absorb shocks and reinforced hinges minimize stress on the hinges from repeated opening and closing. The anchored keyboard prevents keys from being removed and resists spills up to 11.8 ounces. Students can also wipe down the chassis, keyboard and display using commonly available household disinfecting and cleaning wipes. For enhanced safety and protection, the device features a new metal shield that protects the battery from puncture and swelling.

Категория(?)  Автор(?)
Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22533 to the Dev Channel.

TL;DR

  • We are resetting the rollout of the updated entry point for Widgets with weather on the taskbar first introduced with Build 22518. As a result, some Insiders who had this enabled may find it has reverted to the original experience as seen in released version of Windows 11.

  • Fixed an issue where Insiders may have seen error 0x8007012a during a driver or firmware update.
  • Addressed an issue causing Insiders to be unable to sign-in to certain apps sometimes, such as Feedback Hub.
  • Fixed the text in the exploit protection description in the Windows Security app so it just refers to Windows and not Windows 10.
  • Fixed an issue resulting in not being able to import photos from certain cameras and mobile phones into the Photos app (it would just loop forever saying 0 items found so far).
  • Launching Windows Sandbox, closing it, and then launch it again, should no longer lead to having two Windows Sandbox icons in the Taskbar (one of which is non-functional).
[Taskbar]
  • The Wi-Fi icon should appear more reliably in the Taskbar now.
  • If you have multiple monitors connected to your PC and right-click on the date and time on the taskbar on your primary monitor, explorer.exe will no longer crash.
  • Holding CTRL and hovering your mouse over the Task View icon in the taskbar should no longer make explorer.exe crash.
[Settings]
  • Mitigated an underlying issue related to the use of mica in Settings which was impacting overall reliability of the Settings app in recent flights.
  • Fixed an issue impacting some Insiders which was resulting in Settings crashing when trying to access the Installed Apps, Startup Apps, and Default Apps pages.
  • Mitigated an issue that was making the Wheel page in Settings crash when adding an action for an app.
  • You should no longer hear a crackle if playing audio and repeatedly clicking the volume slider in Quick Settings to change the volume.
[Windowing]
  • If you hover your mouse over a truncated window title in ALT + Tab or Task View a tooltip showing the full window name will now appear.
[Input]
  • Improved how the text color and buttons look with theming applied on candidate window, emoji panel and clipboard (before this, some buttons/text was hard to see with certain custom background colors).
  • The voice typing launcher should no longer unexpectedly reappear after clicking the microphone icon to invoke voice typing.
  • For Insiders with the updated input switcher experience, accessibility tools like Magnifier and Narrator should work better with it now.
NOTE: Some fixes noted here in Insider Preview builds from the active development branch may make their way into the servicing updates for the released version of Windows 11 that became generally available on October 5th, 2021.

Known issues

[General]
  • [ADDED 1/14] We're investigating reports that some Insiders are experiencing explorer.exe crashes when using hardware keys to adjust the volume and/or brightness. If you are impacted, please use Quick Settings (WIN + A) to do this for the time being.
[Start]
  • In some cases, you might be unable to enter text when using Search from Start or the taskbar. If you experience the issue, press WIN + R on the keyboard to launch the Run dialog box, then close it.
[Taskbar]
  • The taskbar will sometimes flicker when switching input methods.
[Search]
  • After clicking the Search icon on the Taskbar, the Search panel may not open. If this occurs, restart the “Windows Explorer” process, and open the search panel again.
[Settings]
  • When viewing the list of available Wi-Fi networks, the signal strength indicators do not reflect the correct signal strength.
  • Settings may crash when going to System > Display > HDR. If you need to enable or disable HDR on an HDR-capable PC, you can do so using the WIN + ALT + B keyboard shortcut.

For developers

You can download the latest Windows Insider SDK at aka.ms/windowsinsidersdk. SDK NuGet packages are now also flighting at NuGet Gallery | WindowsSDK which include: These NuGet packages provide more granular access to the SDK and better integrate in CI/CD pipelines.

About the Dev Channel

We have moved the Dev Channel back to receiving builds from our active development branch (RS_PRERELEASE). These builds are from the earliest stage in a new development cycle with the latest work-in-progress code from our engineers. These aren’t always stable builds, and sometimes you will see issues that block key activities or require workarounds while flighting in the Dev Channel. It is important to make sure you read the known issues listed in our blog posts as we document many of these issues with each flight. These builds are also not matched to a specific release. New features and OS improvements from these builds could show up in future Windows releases when they’re ready, and we may deliver them as full OS updates or servicing releases. Build numbers are higher in the Dev Channel than the Windows 11 preview builds in the Beta and Release Preview Channels. You will not be able to switch from the Dev Channel to the Beta or Release Preview Channels without doing a clean install back to the released version of Windows 11 currently. Are you not seeing any of the features listed for this build? Check your Windows Insider Settings to make sure you’re in the Dev Channel. Submit feedback here to let us know if things weren’t working the way you expected. The desktop watermark you see at the lower right corner of your desktop is normal for these pre-release builds.
