Windows 11 Build 25151 released to the Developer Channel

Microsoft have released what is effectively their latest weekly snapshot of their Windows 11 playground for features that may or may not make it into future releases as they gradually refresh all parts of Windows 11 from the frankly unfinished operating system that made its debut a year ago.

A smaller release this week, buit certainly larger than the beta releases which has largely remained quiet for the last month with the only update being A/B testing on a tabbed File Explorer that I haven't seen anyone become officially a part of, so we are hopefully due for some love their as similar builds are in the release preview channel now so general availability is not far away, but here is what is new in this release:


This build includes a small set of fixes that improve the overall experience for Insiders on their PCs.

Fixes

[File Explorer]


Fixed a scaling issue which could result in the tabs being unexpectedly large.
Right clicking a tab and then clicking somewhere else in File Explorer should dismiss the context menu more reliably now.

[Other]
  • We believe an underlying fix in Build 25145 addressed the recent issue where shutting down via the Start menu wasn’t working for some Insiders (unexpectedly rebooting instead), and as such are removing this from the known issues list. If you are continuing to encounter this issue with the latest updates, please report it in the Feedback Hub.
  • Fixed a high hitting Windows Security app crash.
  • Updated the Exclusions page in the Windows Security app so that file paths now make better use of the available space rather than truncating when space is still available.
  • Fixed an underlying issue which was causing a crash when trying to delete ports in printui /s.
  • Fixed an issue causing printing to not work from UWP apps for some Insiders in the last 2 flights.
  • 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

[General]

  • We are working on a fix to address reports that the Mica material and Acrylic blur effect is not rendering correct in OS surfaces like the Start menu, Notification Center and other areas.
  • Some games that use Easy Anti-Cheat may crash or cause your PC to bugcheck.
  • [NEW] We’re investigating reports that some Insiders are experiencing bugchecks with error message KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED in NetAdapterCx.sys starting with Build 25145.

[File Explorer]
  • The up arrow is misaligned in File Explorer tabs. This will be fixed in a future update.
  • We’re investigating reports that launching File Explorer in certain ways when using dark mode (for example, from the command line) is showing the body of File Explorer unexpectedly in light mode.
[Widgets]
  • We’re working on the fix for an issue causing Widgets preferences (temperature units and pinned widgets) to unexpectedly get reset to default.
[Live captions]
  • Certain apps in full screen (e.g., video players) prevent live captions from being visible.
  • Certain apps positioned near the top of the screen and closed before live captions is run will re-launch behind the live captions window positioned at top. Use the system menu (ALT + Spacebar) while the app has focus to move the app’s window further down.

As usual users in the developer channel can check for updates, new testers will need to sign up within the Windows Update settings.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
