The day before, Microsoft released a new Windows 11 Insider Build 25188 to the Dev channel, in which, as often happens, enthusiasts have discovered hidden changes that are not available to ordinary users.
So, in this assembly there are animated navigation menu icons in the Settings application. It is worth noting that such animations have been in some system applications for a long time, and third-party developers can use them in their projects.

Probably, in the next preview builds, Microsoft will officially introduce animated icons in the “Settings”, but for now, we’ll tell you how to enable them manually on Dev build 25188 and higher:
cd /d "C:\ViVeTool"
vivetool /enable /id:34878152 /store:bothand press Enter.
If you want to disable animations, then use the following command:
vivetool /disable /id:34878152 /store:both
