Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26010: What’s New and Exciting?
Windows Insiders, brace yourselves for the latest update – Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26010. This fresh release in the Canary Channel is packed with exciting new features and improvements.
Revamped Widgets Board Settings
The widget settings experience has been significantly enhanced. Users can now customize their widgets board with greater flexibility.
“We’ve updated the widget settings experience, providing more ways for users to customize their widgets board experience.”
One of the notable updates allows users to display only widgets on the widgets board. Another introduces an easier way to personalize feed content.
Choose Your Account for Microsoft Start
Users are no longer restricted to using the account they signed into Windows with for their Microsoft Start powered widgets and feeds. You can now manage the account used by Microsoft Start under the ‘Personalize your content’ section in your widgets board settings.
Changes and Improvements
Several changes and improvements have been introduced in this build. The Tips app is removed from Build 26002 and higher, as it is deprecated.
Undockable Copilot in Windows
Windows Insiders can now experiment with the ability to “undock” Copilot in Windows. When undocked, Copilot can appear above or below other apps in Windows while maintaining a fixed position on the desktop.
“This allows users to access Copilot while minimizing disruption to other user activities.”
Users can also resize the Copilot window for a more comfortable experience.
Scrollable View of Quick Settings
After initial trials with some Windows Insiders, a scrollable view of quick settings is being rolled out again with some slight refinements. This new view allows users to rearrange the set of quick settings, enhancing usability and discoverability.
Stay tuned for more exciting updates as Windows continues to refine and enhance the user experience.
