Microsoft has released a new update for Windows 11, bringing exciting features and improvements to the operating system. The highlight of this update is Copilot, Microsoft’s AI-powered assistant.

Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel received a new build 23560, expanding Copilot’s capabilities. One notable addition is the integration of ALT + TAB functionality. Now, when users press ALT + TAB, the thumbnail preview for Copilot will be displayed among other open windows, allowing for seamless navigation, the tech giant said.

Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23560 to the Dev Channel. There will not be an SDK for this build.

Of course, as with any new software, there are a few known issues that users should be aware of. Microsoft is actively working to address these concerns. One case reported is that some users in the Dev Channel on the Home edition of Windows 11 may experience Copilot disappearing from the taskbar.

However, Microsoft assures users that they are working on a solution that will be resolved in a future update. Additionally, the new Copilot icon is not currently displayed in the latest Dev Channel builds but will be added in an upcoming flight.

Users may also need to use voice commands to access certain features within Copilot, such as the “Show grid” command to click in the “Ask me anything” box for the first time.

In terms of fixes, this update addresses various issues across the system, including File Explorer dropdown transparency, taskbar reliability, Narrator language support, and Task Manager performance.

It should be noted that some of the fixes mentioned in the Dev Channel build may also make their way into future updates for the officially released version of Windows 11.

While there are still some kinks to iron out, Microsoft’s dedication to improving Copilot and addressing user concerns demonstrates its commitment to providing a top-notch user experience. Users can look forward to an enhanced Windows 11 experience with these updates and future improvements.
