Microsoft recently released several builds both for Insiders and non-Insiders. Windows 10 users received the Patch Tuesday update last week, and so did Windows 11, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7. Also, last week, Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25179 introduced several new features, including File Explorer tabs, Tamil Anjal keyboard, and more. We are hopeful that Microsoft will release more new features for Insiders this week.
