Windows 11 Canary Channel Build
The Canary Channel is where platform changes that need more time to develop before being made available to customers can be previewed. The builds that will be made available to Insiders through the Canary Channel will be "hot off the presses", meaning that virtually little validation and documentation will have been done before they are made available.

These builds might have serious flaws that prevent you from using your computer properly or, in rare instances, even force you to reinstall Windows.

Windows and some of the Canary Channel updates that Microsoft makes may never go live, while others may eventually appear in new versions of Windows.



What's new and improved in Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25346?

Content Adaptive Brightness Control (CABC) on plugged-in devices

The feature known as Content Adaptive Brightness Control (CABC) is already well-known to consumers. The purpose of this feature in Windows 11 is to strike a compromise between lower power usage and visual experience in order to prolong battery life. It will dim or brighten sections of a display or monitor depending on the material being presented.


Starting with this version, we are enabling this capability on charger-connected devices including laptops and 2-in-1s. The majority of consumers won't notice the change, which should lower energy usage.

Under "Brightness & colour" in Settings > System > Display, you can change this function by choosing one of three options Off, Always, or "On Battery Only" from a drop-down menu. The default setting for battery-operated devices like laptops and 2-in-1s is "On Battery Only".


Please take note that the OEM (device manufacturer) must enable Content Adaptive Brightness Control (CABC). As a result, not all laptops or 2-in-1 devices provide this feature.



Remote Desktop Improvements

Refreshed light/dark mode connection bar design for remote desktop sessions that adheres to our Windows 11 design guidelines.


You may now instantly email a local file to yourself when sharing it with Outlook contacts in File Explorer. Microsoft also made changes to how your contacts from Outlook are loaded. For files kept in OneDrive folders, this option is not available because OneDrive offers a different share interface.


Taskbar & System Tray Improvements

Microsoft introduced the ability to diagnose network issues when right-clicking the network symbol in the system tray.


Microsoft unveiled new privacy settings and APIs for presence sensors. You may now control your privacy and prevent/allow specific apps from accessing your device's presence sensors if it has compatible presence sensors. Microsoft does not collect any photographs or metadata, and all processing is carried out locally on the hardware of the device to maximize privacy. These options can be found in the Settings menu under Privacy & security > Presence sensing.

Windows Security Improvements

With this build, Microsoft reintroduced the revised Windows Security (firewall) notification dialogues that match the Windows 11 graphics after addressing several concerns based on Insider input.


Narrator Improvements

Using Narrator and the IME candidate window in Windows, Narrator users can now interact with Traditional Chinese characters in Windows with confidence. An extensive Traditional Chinese lexicon was produced to do this. As of right now, the narrator is using the dictionary to clarify each Traditional Chinese term. Users should be aware that the Taiwan language pack is the only one for which Narrator's detailed reading is supported. With the Narrator, the Hong Kong language pack is not supported.



Graphics Improvements

When using battery power, configuring HDR is now simpler! Simply select whether you want HDR (or HDR video streaming) to stay on when your PC is powered by a battery by going to Settings > System > Display > HDR.
