Those who update to the latest current production (22631.3447) will get an added bonus. In-place repair install (IPRI) is now built into Settings > System > Recovery. Good stuff!!! https://www.edtittel.com/blog/ipri-hits-production-windows-11.html

nteresting goings on with updating , after the latter team releases two versions in quick succession. I'm guessing this will be an easy fix, but something's puzzling right now. https://www.edtittel.com/blog/interesting-v0-80-x-powertoys-puzzle.html

The updated widgets board experience with the option to disable the MSN news feed has finally rolled out to my device! Honestly, I think this is a much nicer experience.

Okay, the new weather card on the lock screen from today's dev build is really neat.

Recent updates broke 802.1x authentication on large-scale Wi-Fi networks. Oops! MS puts its known issue rollback (KIR) capabilities to work to fix things auto-magically. https://www.edtittel.com/blog/ms-kir-fixes-wi-fi-roaming-issue.html

Just for grins I got Copilot to script me some PowerShell to count MS-supplied device drivers. The results surprised me: they may surprise you! https://www.edtittel.com/blog/counting-ms-2006-drivers.html

If your display starts getting weird, try the Winkey+Crtl+Shift+B key combo. It fixes many related ills (by resetting the graphics subsystem). https://www.edtittel.com/blog/key-combo-kills-screen-toggle.html

Oho! the "Get latest updates as soon as they're available" slider in 22H2 versions does more than I thought -- and in a good way, too. Deets follow... https://www.edtittel.com/blog/latest-soonest-windows-update-benefits.html

Happy Thursday! New preview builds are now flighting for in all 3 channels.

Mostly just bug fixes today, though there are a handful of other improvements sprinkled in as well.

Canary - https://aka.ms/WIP25941

Dev - https://aka.ms/WIP23536

Beta - https://aka.ms/wip-beta-8-31

BenjMathis1, to windowsinsiders

Interesting. Looks like in the Dev and Beta channels can now preview new features in without having to download the separate Edge Insider apps.

From what I can tell, it looks like you'll only be previewing new features and not whole new builds of the browser, but regardless, this is a great addition!

LOL: When I couldn't access its servers for update 114 yesterday, the "There's no place like Chrome" slogan took on a certain irony. https://www.edtittel.com/blog/chrome-signals-busy-during-114-update.html
