Regarding this tutorial:

I am on insider preview channel (Build 22000.652) but am very interested in this new optimization for games running in borderless windowed mode.
I downloaded and merged the registry entry and it looks like it's there, however I do not have the option to select in the graphics settings.
Will the registry entry be enough for this to work, or do I actually need the dev/beta build?
Thanks!

The first line of the tutorial tells you all you need to know:
"Starting with Windows 11 build 22557, Microsoft introduced a feature called Optimizations for windowed games....".

So yes, you will need a Beta build, currently that's on build 22610.

@Bree - Thanks for the reply. I just thought I would ask as it's not unheard of for features to be baked into earlier version of Windows (albeit not activated) that can be turned on/tested by changing registry values. I added the registry values anyway and it certainly hasn't harmed performance (I think it may have actually increased it according to a couple of games I have tried that I run in borderless due to them running triple screen borderless mode). Could be placebo of course :)
