Earlier this year, Microsoft published a new document describing how the Windows Insider program works. The company made it clear that those opting for the Dev Channel cannot switch to "lower" channels because the earliest preview builds of Windows are not tied to a specific release.
Windows 11 has already received several previews builds with significant improvements and refinements, but Microsoft still has some treats up in its sleeves for the new OS. Windows Insiders are yet to receive Android apps support and a fancy new Chat app for Microsoft Teams integration (the latter is available for some insiders in the Dev channel).
Microsoft released an update for the new Microsoft Store app on Windows 11. Version 22107.1401.6.0 brings several user experience improvements and various "under the hood" changes.

With Windows 11, Microsoft changed many things in its operating system, but the Night Light feature remained untouched. What is different is how you get to the needed settings. This article will show you how to turn on and configure Night Light.
