How To: Enable File Explorer Keyboard Shortcut Tips in Windows 11 Build 25314 (Canary) and 23403 (Dev)

The day before, Microsoft released two preview builds of Windows 11 at once, numbered 25314 and 23403 for the Canary and Dev channels, respectively. If you missed the information about the changes in the Windows Insider program, then we recommend that you read our article – “Microsoft announced big changes in the Windows Insider program.”

In both Insider builds, available keyboard shortcuts have been added to the XAML-based context menu in File Explorer. The displayed letter or symbol is part of the keyboard shortcut and corresponds to the name of the action in the context menu. Note that in the version of Explorer based on the Windows App SDK (there is a button with a pizza icon on the toolbar), this function is not yet available.

Microsoft is currently conducting A/B testing of the innovation, so it is not available to all insiders on the Canary and Dev channels. If you want to try out the change now, then use the ViveTool utility and the instructions below.


  1. Download the ViVeTool utility by this link. This is a new version of ViveTool 0.3.2, details of which we have covered in our material.
  2. Unpack the downloaded archive to any place on your computer (for example, you can create a ViVeTool folder in the root of the C: drive and place the files there).
  3. Open a command prompt as an administrator (for example, by typing CMD in the search and selecting the appropriate item).
  4. In the command line, navigate to the folder with ViVeTool using the command cd /d , then press Enter. For example: cd /d "C:\ViVeTool"
  5. Enter command vivetool /enable /id:39696859 /store:both and press Enter.
  6. Make sure that the command line shows the message “Successfully set feature configuration”
  7. Restart your computer to apply the changes.

To disable the function, use the command:

  • vivetool /disable /id:39696859 /store:both
