Insider Windows 11 Insider Dev Build 23612.1000 (22H2) - Jan. 3


  • Staff
UPDATE 1/11:


 Windows Blogs:

Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23612 to the Dev Channel.

What’s new in Build 23612

Richer weather experience on the lock screen

We are introducing a richer weather experience to your lock screen. This includes dynamic, interactive weather updates. So, as you hover over the weather experience on your lock screen, you will see more information. When you tap or click on the weather card and sign in, Microsoft Edge opens with the full forecast in MSN Weather. If you already use Weather under Settings > Personalization > Lock screen > Lock screen status, there is nothing for you to do. Also, this new experience will be on by default. Should you not want to see this experience, you can change your lock screen status to “None.” This rich weather experience is available when you lock your screen no matter which personalization option you select (Windows spotlight, Picture, or Slideshow).

[We are beginning to roll this out starting with EN-US only, so the experience isn’t available to all Insiders in the Dev Channel just yet as we plan to monitor feedback and see how it lands before pushing it out to everyone.]

FEEDBACK: Please file feedback in Feedback Hub (WIN + F) under Desktop Environment > Lock screen.

Extended languages, multi-display support, and custom commands for voice access

Extended language support: We have extended voice access to support other languages such as French (France), French (Canada), German, Spanish (Spain) and Spanish (Mexico).

When voice access is turned on for the first time, you will be prompted to download a speech model to enable on-device recognition of voice data. In case voice access does not find a speech model matching your display language, you can still choose to proceed ahead to use voice access in English (United States).


New languages under settings on the voice access bar.

You can always switch to a different language by navigating to Settings > Language on the voice access bar.

Multi-display support: You can now use all voice access features on multiple displays, including number and grid overlays which were previously unavailable on any display other than the primary one.

The grid overlay feature has been further developed to allow you to not only interact with the screen you are currently using, but also quickly switch to another display. You can also use the drag and drop feature to move files, apps, and documents from one display to another.

You can use either the alphabet or NATO phonetic in your command to shift focus to another display.
You can use either the alphabet or NATO phonetic in your command to shift focus to another display.

After invoking the grid overlay, use to quickly shift to focus to another display. You can use either the alphabet or NATO phonetic in your command; for example, “B” or “Bravo” would both be valid as shown in the above screenshot.

Use mouse grid command to move your mouse to a specific point on a specific display.

You can also use the accelerated command “mouse grid ..” to quickly move your mouse to a specific point on a specific display. In this case we used “mousegrid A 114” as shown in the above screenshot.

Voice shortcuts: We are introducing voice shortcuts or custom commands to enable you to create your very own command. This is currently available if you use voice access in English.

Creating commands that map to single action, such as opening a URL, or a series of actions performed in sequence, is easy. To get started, say “what can I say” and click on the “Voice shortcuts” tab on the left panel, or use the command “show voice shortcuts” to directly launch the voice shortcuts page. Then, click on the Create Command button to begin the process.

Create a command by using either voice or any other input modality. Give it a name, select one or multiple actions, fill in the necessary information and then click “Create”. Your command is now ready to be used.

You can view all the voice shortcuts you have created either from the command help page or by using the command “show voice shortcuts”.

FEEDBACK: Please file feedback in Feedback Hub (WIN + F) under Accessibility > Voice Access.

Fixes

[Start menu]

  • Fixed an issue which was causing the text input indicator to appear floating when you opened Start menu.

[File Explorer]

  • Made a change to help fix an issue which could cause the spacing between your desktop icons to become extremely wide.
  • Fixed an issue which could cause explorer.exe to crash when opening the context menu in file explorer if multiple files were selected.

[Widgets]

  • We fixed the issue causing a loading delay when the Microsoft Start feed is reenabled.
  • We fixed the issue causing the Widgets Board to not automatically close and reopen when enabling or disabling feeds.
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

[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.

[Widgets]

  • Announcements from the Microsoft Start feed are still shown on the taskbar after the feed is hidden.
  • Keyboard navigation from settings subpages back to the top-level Settings page is broken.
  • Incorrect spacing and fonts used in some settings pages.
  • [ADDED 1/4] Windows Insiders will temporarily see “Windows Widgets” shown as a lock screen status option. This should go away over time and choosing it will not do anything.

[ADDED 1/4] Microsoft Store Update

Windows Insiders in the Canary and Dev Channels running version 22312.xxxx.x of the Microsoft Store and higher will see the following improvement rolling out:

Launch Instant Arcade games while browsing: In recent months, we announced Instant Arcade where you can play some games without the need to download them. Now, you’ll be able to launch these games directly while browsing or in search results. Simply hover over the instant arcade game and click the Play Now button.

Notifications for app installations: When you initiate a download from the Microsoft Store, we’ll send you a notification when your app is installed and ready to use. This can be toggled off in the store’s settings page.

Notification from Store when your app is installed and ready to use.

Performance improvements when installing from search or browsing: We made things a little faster when you install products from the search results page or while browsing. Animations are smoother and more seamless.

FEEDBACK: Please file feedback in Feedback Hub (WIN + F) under Microsoft Store.

For developers

You can download the latest Windows Insider SDK at aka.ms/windowsinsidersdk.

SDK NuGet packages are now also flighting at NuGet Gallery | WindowsSDK which include:
These NuGet packages provide more granular access to the SDK and better integration in CI/CD pipelines.

SDK flights are now published for both the Canary and Dev Channels, so be sure to choose the right version for your Insider Channel.

Remember to use adaptive code when targeting new APIs to make sure your app runs on all customer machines, particularly when building against the Dev Channel SDK. Feature detection is recommended over OS version checks, as OS version checks are unreliable and will not work as expected in all cases.

About the Dev Channel

REMINDER: The Dev Channel has been rebooted. Windows Insiders who were in the Dev Channel on 25000 series builds have been moved to the new Canary Channel. Going forward, the Dev Channel will receive 23000 series builds. Insiders who were moved to the Canary Channel and want to move back to the Dev Channel can follow these instructions to do a clean installation of Windows 11 and then re-join the Dev Channel to receive 23000 series builds.

The Dev Channel receives builds that represent long lead work from our engineers with features and experiences that may never get released as we try out different concepts and get feedback. It is important to remember that the builds we release to the Dev Channel should not be seen as matched to any specific release of Windows and the features included may change over time, be removed, or replaced in Insider builds or may never be released beyond Windows Insiders to general customers. For more information, please read this blog post about how we plan to use the Dev Channel to incubate new ideas, work on long lead items, and control the states of individual features.

In some cases, features and experiences may go out to the Canary Channel first before going out to the Dev Channel however the Dev Channel will provide better platform stability. As we get closer to shipping, some features and experiences will also make their way to the Beta Channel when they are ready.

The desktop watermark you see at the lower right corner of your desktop is normal for these pre-release builds.

*Availability of Copilot in Windows:
Copilot in Windows in preview is being rolled out gradually to Windows Insiders in select global markets. The initial markets for the Copilot in Windows preview include North America, United Kingdom and parts of Asia and South America. It is our intention to add additional markets over time.

Important Insider Links

Thanks,
Amanda & Brandon

Getting it now, glad to see I can still use the appraserres bypass trick to install on this unsupported device. Caught me by surprise this time, ran the check early at 6% downloaded rather than the usual 8%.

Pity the MSN weather app has been infested with ads and this needs to be installed to show the new weather experience.

MS inconsistent as usual, they added back Copilot in Dev 23612 with local account as announced in previous blogs, but with Canary 26020 they now removed it for local account. 😂😂😜🤷‍♂️
Trying to confuse the Russians again?
Edit:
Copilot disappeared again in Dev 23612 with local account after a few minutes. Had to login with MS account to get it back. 🤣🤣😜🤷‍♂️

Pardon my lack of understanding, but isn't the primary purpose of a Lock Screen to "guard" your system while you step away for a bit? Maybe go get some coffee or go potty or both or whatever? Why would someone Lock their system and then hover over it to watch some "experience"? Huh?

We are introducing a richer weather experience to your lock screen. This includes dynamic, interactive weather updates. So, as you hover over the weather experience on your lock screen, you will see more information."

Not seeing any weather info on the lock screen on any of the latest Builds, I think they broke it again, it used to work, but not anymore.
I press Win + L and nothing shows at the bottom of the screen where the weather info used to show up. 😎🤷‍♂️

It's released for EN-US only for now. Not sure where you are. Might be the reason. Or, as you say, it's broken.

I'm in the US, I think they just broke it recently. Nothing new from MS. 😝

Hidden in build 23612: an early, incomplete feature showing a menu when hovering over the Copilot taskbar icon with text or an image copied, suggesting actions you can take with it such as rewriting/summarizing text or removing image backgrounds.

To get this early implementation, make sure the Copilot icon in system tray change (46874360) is enabled, then enable CopilotNudges:

Looks like Copilot is coming to File Explorer context menus in some way soon, the latest Canary and Dev builds include a new velocity feature called CopilotFEContextMenu,

Do you know what is the difference between these two web sites? They look the same on the surface, but they are different.
Can I trust either one?

Thanks, that is the one I used before they had an interruption last year, not sure where the other one popped up from.
I guess I can trace both to see where they are now located. The top one seems faster from here in Southern California. 🤷‍♂️

Hello sir,

Slightly off-topic, but I was wondering if it is possible to "skip" a build of specific channel. Maybe multiple builds.
Right now, I have set Windows to manually download and install builds instead of doing it automatically and just notifying me to restart. On the Windows update page in Settings, it says 23612 is ready to download and install.
Now let's say I don't actually download it and the next build comes out. Will it show that next build there instead of this one on the update page? Is it even possible to directly jump to latest build i.e. skipping the old one not installed? Or does Windows force you to take 1 step at a time regarding this? Thanks.

Getting it now, glad to see I can still use the appraserres bypass trick to install on this unsupported device. Caught me by surprise this time, ran the check early at 6% downloaded rather than the usual 8%.

View attachment 83014
The best trick is still dism /Apply-Image and then install the bootloader via bcdboot.exe, You can optionally install to a physical vhdx (my preferred method) or the native disk itself. Just create a 100mb EFI partition on the target disk and a partition of a size you want for the target windows install.

Note this works for Windows pro /windows education, windows enterprise and windows for work stations. I haven't tried windows home. If you download more than 1 version of windows in a single iso change index to the number that the windows edition you want to install. E,g if Windows enterprise is image 3 change index=1 to index=3 in the dism /Apply-Image command. You can get a list via

Dism /Get-ImageInfo /imagefile:D:\sources\install.wim

E.g S is my EFI partition and C is the windows target disk and D is the windows install disk (boot, ->repair system->command mode).

In the final setup OOBE phase : (i.e after keyboard and name device boots after install and
if you want a local account at the prompt for Ms sign in - this method still works

email : nobody@nobody.com
password : anythingyoulike

then at the error message "Oops something went wrong" click the NEXT button and installation continues with a local account.

After clicking Next it carries on with a local account

Q.E.D !!!!
No probs with CPU (intel Gen 6 so not supported, TPM optional, and local account without having to do a single mod to anything om the windows install like messing around with .dll's etc.


@hexerus

Not sure but why not try it and see -- download from uupdump an old build --the archive goes back a long way -- install it and try a windows update. Run it in a VM if you can -- don't worry about activation - you are just testing to see if the thing updates sequentially or to the latest build. Note though you might have to set that build as part of the insider program to get the most up to date build.

Cheers

I'm detecting substantial drop in performance (-15% CPU and over -30% for GPU) comparing to Regular windows on same PC. Drivers and settings are same in both.
