What's new and improved in Windows 11 build 25284

New Widget

Now that Windows App SDK 1.2 is available, developers may make widgets for their apps. In the most recent Insider Preview releases for the Dev Channel, users can access these experiences on their Windows 11 widgets board.

 

Are you ready to test a new widget? A preview version of the widget for the Messenger app is currently accessible. Update Messenger to the most recent version from the Microsoft Store to give it a try. When you're ready to pin your widget, open the widgets board and go to the widgets picker by selecting the "+" button in the top-right corner of the board.

 

 

Other improvements and fixes

[Taskbar & System Tray]

  • Fixed an issue where right clicking on certain icons in the hidden icons flyout would make the flyout dismiss rather than bringing up the context menu for that icon.

[Search on the Taskbar]

The fixes only apply for Windows Insiders who received one of the different treatments for how search looks on the taskbar that began rolling out to Insiders with Build 25252:

  • Fixed an explorer.exe crash which was impacting some Insiders, related to the search box in the taskbar.

[Input]

  • When search suggestions are triggered while using the Pinyin IME, keyboard focus will now stay on the current candidate. To move focus to the search suggestions, press Tab.

[Windowing]

  • Fixed an issue for PCs with touch, where when using certain apps in full screen mode it wasn’t possible to swipe down from the top of the screen to make the title bar appear.

[Other]

  • Fixed an issue which was causing certain apps to hang or crash when saving files as PDF in the last few builds.
  • Fixed an issue where using the cast option in an app may unexpectedly not show any devices in recent builds.

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.
