Microsoft Windows 11

Microsoft has announced a new Windows 11 build for beta channel insiders. The new build, version 22635.3785 (KB5039319) introduces several new features and improvements, as well as bug fixes and known issues. The biggest change in this build is the ability to share content to an Android device from the Windows Share window. This feature requires you to pair your Android device to your Windows PC using the Link to Windows app on Android and Phone Link on your PC.

When right-clicking on apps pinned to the Start menu, jump lists will be shown for apps that have them such as PowerPoint. Microsoft is also trying new adjustments to the Windows Spotlight experience on the desktop.

Microsoft is also releasing Snipping Tool (version 11.2405.31.0 and newer) update to Insiders in the Beta and Release Preview Channels. This update brings automatic save for screen recordings feature which will save the recordings automatically to the Screen Recordings folder (inside Videos folder). You can also turn off this feature in Snipping Tool settings.

Finally, you can now make quick and easy purchases in Store using Microsoft Wallet.

This Insider build also comes with the following bug fixes:
