Microsoft Releases Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23560: Check out what’s new?

Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23560

Microsoft has released Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23560 to the Dev Channel without an SDK. Microsoft has rolled out the ability to use Copilot in Windows with ALT+TAB. The usage of ALT+TAB hotkey displays the thumbnail preview for Copilot in Windows in addition to other thumbnail previews of open windows. This modification does not change the ALT+TAB experience in Windows 11. You should note that Copilot only displays in ALT+TAB if Copilot is invoked from the Taskbar.

The Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23560 has resolved an issue that could make the File Explorer dropdowns and context menu unexpectedly have a transparent background. If the search box wasn’t showing the correct folder name inside the Gallery, then the issue has been resolved. The flight has resolved an explorer.exe crash that impacts Taskbar reliability.

The update fixed an issue where languages other than US English couldn’t preview Narrator natural voices in Settings. If the Narrator wasn’t reading out the time stamps on recommended items in Start, then the issue has been resolved. Microsoft has improved the performance when expanding the navigation pane in Task Manager.

Microsoft has acknowledged few known issues pertaining to Start menu and Windows Copilot. You should note that some apps under All apps on the Start menu such as PWA apps installed via Microsoft Edge could incorrectly be labeled as a system component.

Sometimes, Windows Copilot will disappear from the Taskbar for few Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel who are running Windows 11 Home. Microsoft has reported that the update will be available in a future flight. If the new Copilot icon is not displayed properly in the latest Dev Channel builds, then the issue will be resolved soon. You will need to make use of Show grid commands to select the Ask Me Anything while first launching or refreshing Windows Copilot.
