With Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25314, the company is preparing the comeback of a number of missing taskbar features, as a look at the code reveals. This is how the app grouping can be canceled again. As a leak reveals, there are other innovations in the preview version from the Canary channel. The cloud PC is also finding its way into the task view, which can display multiple virtual desktops.
New in-place update only replaces some system components
Microsoft has been offering various cloud PCs under the name Windows 365 Cloud PC since 2022, especially for corporate customers. Corporate customers can rent a virtual Windows PC from EUR 25.50 per month and user. In particular, frontline workers, i.e. employees without their own PC, are to be given the option of being able to access a computer in the cloud.
The new USB settings for USB4 are equally important for private customers as well as for corporate customers. Various options relating to the current USB standard should be displayed directly in the settings app in the “Bluetooth & Devices” area. After all, USB4 with USB Type-C does more than just transfer data and can also be used as a display connection or for charging devices. If there are problems after an update, there should be a new in-place update so that only the system components that are responsible for the problems are replaced. All apps, games, documents and settings will then be preserved. No installation medium is required for this new type of update installation, just an active internet connection. It remains to be seen whether these new functions will really find their way into Windows 11, because the Canary channel serves as an experimental laboratory. Some new functions come in a feature update, other functions disappear again.
