You can soon create live kernel memory dumps from Windows 11 Task Manager

In order to facilitate the collection of Live Kernal Memory Dumps (LKDs), Microsoft added a number of new developer-focused features to Task Manager with the release of Windows 11 Build 23419. The purpose of a kernel live dump is to gather information for troubleshooting an anomalous circumstance while still enabling the OS to function. When compared to a bug check for "non-fatal" but high-impact failures and hangs, this minimizes downtime.


Together with the current "Memory dump" for user mode processes, the Live Kernal Memory Dump is also available now to the Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel.

Windows 11 Build 23419 adds a USB4 Settings Page

With the Windows 11 Build 23419 and above, the users can access the USB4 Hubs and Devices settings page under Settings > Bluetooth & devices > USB. With USB4, novel docking, high-performance peripheral, display, and charging productivity scenarios are made possible.


For a system with USB4 support, information about the system's USB4 capabilities and connected devices is available on the USB4 settings page. These tips are intended to help with troubleshooting in the event that users require assistance from the system administrator or the device manufacturer (OEM).



The features provided by this page are:

  • View the tree of connected USB4 hubs and devices.
  • View attributes and capabilities associated with the USB4 domain.
  • Copy the details into the clipboard so it can be shared with customer support or system administrators for troubleshooting.


Do note that this page won't be available if your system does not support USB4 with the Microsoft USB4 Connection Manager.


To determine whether your system is USB4 capable or not, check for "USB4 Host Router" populating in the Device Manager.



Cloud Suggestion in Simplified Chinese IME
