Dev Channel Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25145: All you need to know

  • The Redmond tech giant has released a brand new Insider Build to the Dev Channel.
  • Insiders that have installed Build 25145 received important Braille narrator tweaks.
  • Also, Microsoft has also just enabled the OneDrive Standalone 100GB subscriptions.

Dev Channel Insiders, this one is for all of you, as Microsoft has decided to release yet another brand new Windows 11 Insider Build to your Channel.

Build 25145 is actually the Sun Valley 3 (Windows 11 23H2) development for Windows Insiders, which will eventually become the version that is released in 2023.

We’re getting plenty of new changes and improvements, and of course, a lot of bug fixes. Let’s get right into it and see what exactly we can expect.

What’s new in Insider Build 25145 for Windows 11?

One of the most important changes with this build is that braille devices will continue working while switching between Narrator and third-party screen readers as the narrator will automatically change Braille drivers.

However, you must remove Narrator’s current braille support if it is already installed, and detailed instructions are provided in the official release changelog.

Back in March, Microsoft enhanced the Microsoft 365 subscription management experience in Windows 11 Settings and added the ability to view your payment method on your Microsoft 365 subscription in Accounts within Settings.

Starting with today’s build, the company has begun enabling OneDrive Standalone 100GB subscriptions in the Accounts page within Settings, similar to the Microsoft 365 subscriptions.

As a result, you will be allowed to view your recurring billing, payment method, and OneDrive storage usage within Windows 11.

Furthermore, the legacy Local Administrator Password Solution product (aka LAPS) is now a native part of Windows and includes many new features.

Keep in mind that feature documentation is not yet available, however, if you have used the legacy LAPS product then many of the features in this new version will be familiar to you.

The Redmond tech giant even provided a short how-to to help you get started on the basic Active Directory domain-joined client scenario:

  1. Extend your Active Directory schema by running the Update-LapsADSchema cmdlet in the new LAPS PowerShell module.
  2. Add the necessary permissions on your computer’s OU by running the Set-LapsADComputerSelfPermission cmdlet.
  3. Add a new LAPS Group Policy object and enable the Configure password backup directory setting and configure it to backup the password to Active Directory.
  4. The domain-joined client will process the policy at the next GPO refresh interval. Run gpupdate /target:computer /force to avoid waiting. (The Invoke-LapsPolicyProcessing cmdlet may be used for this same purpose.)
  5. Once the domain-joined client has backed up a new password (look for the 10018 event in the event log – see below screenshot), run the Get-LapsADPassword cmdlet to retrieve the newly stored password (by default you must be running as a domain administrator).

Changes and Improvements

[General]

  • Every Microsoft customer should be able to use our products knowing we will protect their privacy and give them the information and tools needed to easily make privacy decisions with confidence. The new App usage history features, which began rolling out to Insiders with Build 25140, gives users a 7-day history of resource access for Location, Camera, Microphone, Phone Calls, Messaging, Contacts, Pictures, Videos, Music library, Screenshots and apps through the Settings experience. You can find this new information under Settings > Privacy & security > App permissions (simply click on one of the app permissions categories such as microphone and look at “Recent activity”).

[Suggested Actions]

  • Suggested Actions, which began rolling out with Build 25115, is now available to all Windows Insiders in the in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

[File Explorer]

  • Middle clicking a folder in the body of File Explorer will now open it in a new tab.

Fixes

[General]

  • Fixed an issue causing Windows Insiders on Surface Pro X devices to hit a black screen when attempting to resume from hibernate.
  • Fixed a bugcheck that some Insiders were experiencing with SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED related to USBs.
  • Fixed a bugcheck with error 0x1CA SYNTHETIC_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT that could happen sporadically on some PCs after left idling for some time. This could happen when a laptop lid was closed, making it appear that the laptop had rebooted while sleeping.
  • Fixed an issue from the last two builds that was leading to InventorySvc consuming an unexpectedly high volume of memory the longer it was running.

[File Explorer]

  • The row of tabs should now be included in the keyboard focus cycle when pressing Tab or F6. Once focus is in the tab row, you can use left or right arrow keys to navigate through them.
  • Fixed an issue where the tab order when using CTRL + Tab would be wrong if you’d rearranged the tabs in File Explorer.

[Start]

  • Narrator will now read the dialog that opens when uninstalling an app from its context menu in Start and those options correctly.
  • The animation when selecting the More button in Start’s Recommended section in right-to-left (RTL) languages should now appear correctly.

[Taskbar]

  • When dismissing notification center using your keyboard, its closing animation will now show correctly.

[Settings]

  • Typing a number in the Settings search box when using an Arabic display language should no longer show boxes.
  • Fixed an issue causing Settings to crash when going to Bluetooth & Devices > Printers & Scanners in the last few builds.
  • Fixed a couple crashes that some Insiders were experiencing in the last few builds when opening the Wi-Fi section of Quick Settings, or after connecting or disconnecting from networks in the Wi-Fi section in Quick Settings.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the Wi-Fi option in Quick Settings and the Wi-Fi section in Settings to sometimes take a few seconds to appear.
  • Using touch to rearrange the items in Quick Settings when in edit mode should no longer lead to Quick Settings unexpectedly dismissing sometimes.

[Input]

  • Added the SOM currency sign (U+20C0) to the Courier New font family.

[Task Manager]

  • Pressing CTRL + Page Up and CTRL + Page Down should work again now to navigate through pages in Task Manager.

[Other]

  • Fixed a rare issue that could lead to certain apps to sporadically crash on launch.

Known issues

[General]

  • We are investigating reports that the Mica material and Acrylic blur effect is not rendering correct in OS surfaces like the Start menu, Notification Center and other areas.
  • We’re investigating reports that shutting down via the Start menu isn’t working for some Insiders and is unexpectedly rebooting instead.
  • Some games that use Easy Anti-Cheat may crash or cause your PC to bugcheck.

[File Explorer]

  • The up arrow is misaligned in File Explorer tabs. This will be fixed in a future update.
  • We’re investigating reports that launching File Explorer in certain ways when using dark mode (for example, from the command line) is showing the body of File Explorer unexpectedly in light mode.

[Widgets]

  • We’re working on the fix for an issue causing Widgets preferences (temperature units and pinned widgets) to unexpectedly get reset to default.

[Live captions]

  • Certain apps in full screen (e.g., video players) prevent live captions from being visible.
  • Certain apps positioned near the top of the screen and closed before live captions is run will re-launch behind the live captions window positioned at top. Use the system menu (ALT + Spacebar) while the app has focus to move the app’s window further down.

This is everything that is new on the Windows 11 Insider Dev Channel after the release of Build 25145, so go ahead and install it right now for all these updates.
