What's new and improved in Windows 11 Build 23580?

Customizable Install Locations in the Microsoft Store App

One of the standout features of Windows 11 Build 23580 is the enhancement to the Microsoft Store app. Users will now have the flexibility to customize the installation location of their games. This update grants you more control over how and where your games are stored on your PC.


It's a boon for those who prefer to manage their storage space efficiently or have specific preferences for game installations. Do note that these settings are synchronized with the Xbox app on PC to ensure a consistent gaming experience.



Access Copilot in Windows Without Signing In

Another noteworthy change is related to Copilot in Windows. With this build, users with local accounts can now access Copilot for a limited number of queries without the need to sign in. Copilot is Microsoft's feature that provides assistance and guidance when you encounter issues. This improvement simplifies the support process for those who prefer using local accounts.



Enhanced Windows Share

Windows Share, the feature that facilitates the quick transfer of files between devices, has received a significant speed boost in this build. Previously, users needed to be on the same private network to use this feature. However, the update allows users to share files with devices on the same network, whether it's public or private. You can activate nearby sharing through Quick Settings, making file sharing more convenient and accessible.


Temporary Update for Emojis

In Build 23506, Microsoft introduced an update to its color font format, COLRv1, which enhanced the appearance of emojis, giving them a 3D-like quality. However, due to some bugs, this update is temporarily disabled in Build 23580. The plan is to re-enable this feature in a future Dev Channel flight, ensuring a more vibrant and engaging emoji experience for Windows users.



Fixes and Other Improvements

Windows 11 Build 23580 doesn't stop at the major changes mentioned above. It also addresses several issues and brings fixes to various aspects of the operating system. Here are some of the notable ones:

  • File Explorer: A bug where the mouse back and forward buttons didn't respond correctly when hovering over the Recommended Files section of Home has been fixed. Additionally, an issue where the Gallery would display incorrectly when Group By was applied to all folders has also been resolved.
  • Desktops: The update improves the readability of desktop tooltips in Task view in contrast to themes. Furthermore, a problem causing taskbar icons to disappear after switching desktops has been fixed, ensuring a more seamless multitasking experience.
  • Search on the Taskbar: An issue where the search box would unexpectedly open and close when the taskbar was nearly full of icons has been addressed, making the search experience smoother.
  • Windows Spotlight: Users will now be pleased to see Windows Spotlight wallpapers displaying correctly in the desktop thumbnail in Task View, resolving a previously persistent issue.
