Microsoft today released Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.194 to the Beta Channel and commercial PCs in the Release Preview Channel. It includes the following apps with an updated design: Snipping Tool, Calculator, and Clock with Focus Sessions.
Alongside build 22458 in the Dev channel, Microsoft released a new version of the Tips app. The update brings redesigned UI and more than a hundred tips and tricks to help you get acquainted with the latest operating system from Microsoft. After updating the app, you will find different categories with a brief explanation of each tip and an animation to show it in action.
The latest Windows 11 preview build from the Dev channel does not bring many exciting features. In fact, the only visible change (the "Sign-in Options" button in the power menu) is confusingly available in previous builds. What is more important is the fact that build 22458 flags your Windows 11 installation as incompatible if your computer or a virtual machine has no TPM 2.0 according to Windows 11 hardware requirements.
Microsoft has released a new preview build of Windows 11, build 22458, to Windows Insider participants on the Dev Channel. Microsoft is currently releasing builds from the active development branch (RS_PRERELEASE) to the Dev channel. It means they no longer belong to the version of Windows 11, which will be released on October 5th.
As you may already know, one of new features in Windows 11 and the appropriate Server product is SMB compression. It allows an administrator, user, or application to request compression of files as they transfer over the network.
Apple no longer supports BootCamp on ARM-based Macbooks, but users remain free to run Windows 10 or Windows 11 side-by-side with macOS. There is plenty of virtualization software to use Windows within macOS, such as VMWare Fusion or Parallels Desktop. If you plan to use Windows 11 in a virtual machine on your M1-based Mac, there is some unfortunate news for you. In a statement to The Register, Microsoft confirmed that it does not plan to provide official support for Windows 11 in virtual machines, and using Windows 11 on software, such as Parallels Desktop, is not "a supported scenario."
Microsoft is now releasing the updated Photos app to Insiders running Windows 11. The company traditionally does a gradual roll-out, so not everyone is getting the app right now. However, the good news is that you can just directly get the app from Microsoft's servers and enjoy it.
MIcrosoft today released ISO images for Windows 11 Build 22454, which was earlier available via Windows Update to Insiders on the Dev channel. Now you can clean install it on demand.
You can use a number of methods to change Time Zone in Windows 11. Incorrect time zone might be one of the reasons why your computer shows the wrong date and time. Although Windows 11 can detect time zone automatically, the process might fail if there is no active Internet connection.
Prior to the official release of Windows 11, which will happen on October 5, Microsoft launched a large advertising campaign that highlights the key features and changes that users will get with the new operating system.
