Microsoft has released two new builds of Windows 11 for Windows Insiders. For Windows Insiders on the Dev channel there is build 23580 and for Windows Insiders on the Canary channel there is 25987.

UPDATE: Here is my hands on video

25987 for the Canary channel

The Canary build has changed the Out OF Box Experience (OOBE) so that you install network drivers if there are no Wi-Fi devices available.

Also, the Windows Map and Movies & TV apps will no longer be installed on a clean install of the OS.

Changes and Improvements


  • We’ve designed the settings page for Delivery Optimization under Settings > Windows Update > Advanced options > Delivery Optimization to match the Windows 11 design principles.

[File Explorer]

  • PNG files now support viewing and editing metadata – for example, if you’d like to set a star rating in Properties, edit the description, or add keywords.

Fixes for known issues

  • Fixed an issue causing File Explorer to crash in Windows Sandbox when using a non-English display language.

Known issues

  • [REMINDER] Some popular games may not work correctly on the most recent Insider Preview builds in the Canary Channel. Please be sure to submit feedback in Feedback Hub on any issues you see with playing games on these builds.
  • [NEW] There are blank options showing on the Personalization and Privacy & Security settings pages where if clicked on will crash Settings.
  • [NEW] We’re investigating reports that attempting to reboot into safe mode hangs on the boot logo.

23580 for the Dev channel

The dev channel build has a couple of features changes and a selection of fixes.

Copilot for Windows now works with local account for a limited number of queries before logging in and Nearby sharing has been updated so that o that devices on the same public or private network can share files, previously both devices had to be on the same private network.

Here are the fixes and known issues:


[File Explorer]

  • Fixed an issue where using mouse back and forward buttons didn’t react when hovering over the Recommended Files section of Home.
  • Fixed an issue where Gallery would stop displaying correctly if you applied Group By to all folders.


  • Fixed an issue that made the desktop tooltips in Task view hard to read in contrast themes.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing taskbar icons to disappear after switching desktops.

[Search on the Taskbar]

  • Fixed an issue where if your taskbar was close to being full of icons and you used the search box, clicking the search box would open search and then it would immediately close.

[Windows Spotlight]

  • Fixed an issue which was resulting in Windows Spotlight wallpapers not showing correctly in the desktop thumbnail in Task View.

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.

Known issues


  • [NEW] The purple Chat button may show up again on the taskbar after updating to this build. This is unintentional. We’re working to resolve an issue where the button is incorrectly showing again.

[Copilot in Windows*]

  • When first launching or after refreshing Copilot in Windows while using voice access, you’ll need to use “Show grid” commands to click in the “Ask me anything” box for the first time.
