What's new and improved in Windows 11 Build 26010?

New Widgets Board Settings

One of the standout features in the Windows 11 Build 26010 is the revamped widget settings experience. Users can now enjoy a more personalized widgets board with additional customization options. The update introduces settings that enable users to selectively display widgets on their widgets board, providing a cleaner and more tailored experience.


Another noteworthy addition is a feature that simplifies the process of personalizing feed content, making it easier for users to curate their information streams.



Moreover, the new settings experience empowers users to choose the Microsoft Start account they want to use for their widgets and feeds. This flexibility means users are no longer confined to the account used during the Windows sign-in process. Navigating to the 'Microsoft Start' settings under the 'Personalize your content' section in the widgets board settings allows users to effortlessly manage the account associated with Microsoft Start, thereby offering a more personalized and user-centric experience. Importantly, this enhancement is not bound by region, ensuring a global impact.



Undocking Copilot in Windows

A notable experiment in the Windows 11 Insider Preview Build involves the ability to "undock" Copilot. Users can now unpin the Copilot panel at the top right in the header with a simple click on the new icon. Once undocked, Copilot retains a fixed position on the desktop, either above or below other apps.


This feature allows users to access Copilot seamlessly while minimizing disruption to ongoing activities. Furthermore, users can resize the Copilot window for a more comfortable experience by clicking and dragging the window's edge to adjust its width according to their preferences.


This enhancement showcases Microsoft's commitment to providing users with more control and flexibility in their interactions with Windows.



Taskbar & System Tray Improvements

Building on the feedback received from Windows Insiders in the Canary Channel, Microsoft is reintroducing a scrollable view of quick settings in the Taskbar and System Tray. Starting with Build 25967, this feature has undergone refinements to enhance usability and discoverability for users.


The scrollable view of quick actions enables users to rearrange their set of quick settings, offering a more intuitive and customizable experience. This refinement reflects Microsoft's dedication to refining features based on user feedback, ensuring that the Windows environment evolves in alignment with user needs.



End Notes

Microsoft's commitment to refining and enhancing the Windows 11 experience is evident in the latest Insider Preview Builds. The introduction of new widgets board settings, the ability to undock Copilot, and improvements to the Taskbar and System Tray demonstrate the company's responsiveness to user feedback.


It also demonstrates the company's dedication to providing a personalized, seamless, and productive computing experience for Windows users worldwide. As these features continue to evolve through the Insider Preview program, users can look forward to a future Windows update that reflects their needs and preferences more closely than ever before.
