You will also find improvements for the “Your Microsoft account” settings page. You can now link your phone during the initial setup.

Build 22567 for Windows 11 new features

Here are all the new features and improvements for the latest release of Windows 11 in the Dev Channel:

Start menu changes

When you hover one pinned app icon over another, a subtle animation will hint that this will create a folder.

Touch gestures

On build 22567, Microsoft is also updating multi-finger touch gestures to include responsive and delightful animations that follow your finger.

New “Open With” dialog box

Windows 11 updates the “Open with” dialog box in this rollout to align with the new design language. Microsoft has also simplified the experience by making it possible to update your default app with just one click.

Windows Update energy tweaks

Starting with build 22567, Windows Update will schedule automatic updates during times that will result in lower carbon emissions. According to the company, electrical grids supply power from various sources, including renewables and fossil fuels. In this update, Windows 11 will prioritize installing updates when more clean energy is being used, such as wind, solar, and hydro. The new energy-efficient feature will only be available when the computer is connected, and regional carbon intensity data is available from our partners “electricityMap” or “WattTime.” You would be able to tell if it’s enabled because you will see the “Windows Update is committed to helping reduce carbon emissions” message on the Windows Update page.

Settings app tweaks

As usual, the Setting app is getting new tweaks, including updates to pages across the Settings app to adopt WinUI controls for a consistent look and feel. You will also notice improvements to searching settings, and you can now mute and unmute your audio by clicking the volume icon in the hardware indicator for volume.

Accounts settings changes

In this flight and moving forward, the “Your Microsoft account” information will appear in the “Accounts” section of the Settings app instead of having its dedicated page. This new section will display your Microsoft 365 subscription information, including payment information and an alert when you need to update your billing information, the people you are sharing the subscription, and OneDrive data usage. If you don’t have a subscription, you will see the OneDrive storage usage and the benefits to lure you into getting a subscription.

Voice Typing improvements

The Voice Typing feature introduces a few commands, including:

To Enter – Say “Press Enter.” To Backspace – Say “Pres Backspace,” “Backspace.” To Space – Say “Press space,” “Insert Space.” To Tab – Say “Press Tab,” “Tab.”

Windows Sandbox

Windows Sandbox mapped folders now support relative paths. For example, ..\relative\folder…

Smart App Control

Smart App Control (SAC) is a new security feature available through the Windows Security app to block untrusted or potentially dangerous applications. You first need to configure SAC in evaluation mode. While in evaluation mode, it will learn if it can help protect the device without getting in your way. If so, it will automatically enable itself. Otherwise, it will automatically disable itself. While in evaluation mode, a user can manually turn on SAC in the Windows Security app under the App & Browser Control section.

Out-of-box experience (OOBE)

The Windows 11 initial setup (also known as the out-of-box experience) is getting a new section that lets you link your Android phone to your computer. This feature will allow you to access your text messages, photos, mobile apps and make calls without unlocking your phone.
