Microsoft has released a new new build of Windows 11 for Windows Insiders on the Canary Channel. Build 26236 only has a couple of minor changes and one new known issues.
UPDATE: Here is my hands on video

Changes in build 26236

Microsoft say the “update includes a small set of general improvements and fixes that improve the overall experience for Insiders running this build on their PCs.” with the only other change being when you sign in with a Microsoft account, the new design gives you a quick glanceable view of your account benefits and makes it easy to manage account settings.

Fixes and Known issues



Fixed an issue causing the taskbar to not appear for a small number of Insiders in the last couple flights.


Fixed an underlying issue which was causing the preferred audio volume (under Settings > System > Sound > Volume Mixer) for Microsoft Edge to not persist across restarting the app.

Known issues

The investigation is ongoing, however if you are impacted by this and really want to get onto the latest build in the Canary or Dev Channel today – you can download the latest ISO here and do a clean install and opt your device back into flighting in the Canary or Dev Channels.
