Windows has a Windows release schedule that consists of many previews before the stable releases. Apparently, the next version of Windows, Windows 11, is about to reach a new level of stability.
Windows 11 Preview has been released to the public and includes many new features and improvements. Microsoft encourages users to test the preview version and provide feedback to help improve the final product.
Windows has a Windows release schedule that consists of many previews before the stable releases. Apparently, the next version of Windows, Windows 11, is about to reach a new level of stability. The company has implemented a new internal preview of Windows 11 which is quite a breakthrough. The company has removed the watermark identifying the building as a preview. The update is Windows 11 build 22610, but you will have to go to Settings to find it. No more intrusive bookmarks on your desktop.
Removing the watermark is a common behavior for every Windows release cycle. This basically means that the private update is almost over. However, don’t hold your breath yet for the final version. After all, the company will not release the Windows 11 22H2 update before October.
However, this means that Beta Channel users will start seeing cumulative updates instead of full releases. Therefore, the “hard work” may soon be over, and the company will release small patches to achieve full stability.
Now that the update is stable, we can start to see some new features across the operating system. The company recently announced the arrival of a new file explorer that finally brings tabs. We can see this coming now in a future update. Additionally, there is Live Captions feature that will transcribe audio from any source. There will also be folders in the Start menu, tactile support for Snap layouts and more features. Some of these features are available on the Dev Channel, but the company has never explicitly revealed when they will arrive on the stable channel. We can finally see these features coming to future Preview releases.
New features with Windows 11 build 22610.
It’s worth noting that the watermark will eventually return. However, at least for this development cycle, we will not see its return. Windows 11 build 22610 comes with new features, and it removes others. Improved schedule taskbar removed after comments. We assume that something else will replace it in the near future.
The update also includes the new Family Safety tool, which includes a new location sharing view that lets you monitor the location of your family members. There are also several fixes for previous versions.
According to Microsoft, this is the last chance to switch from the Developer channel to the Beta channel. Therefore, the developer channel will go back to creating initial releases at some point. The beta channel will continue to receive cumulative updates. If you install a higher number, you will have to reinstall Windows 11 from scratch.
Until the update arrives, you can do your best to master your Windows 11 settings with God Mode. Windows 11 was not considered a success for Microsoft, after all, the operating system falls short of the company’s expectations in terms of popularity. However, this is not a huge surprise when the operating system is not as compatible as Windows 10.
