A few days ago, Microsoft released a new Windows 11 Insider Build 25300 to the Dev channel, which includes a fairly large number of hidden innovations. Interestingly, many of them are now impossible to activate using the ViVeTool utility, so enthusiasts had to modify the system libraries to see the upcoming innovations.
Famous insider Albacore found a new feature that allows you to create virtual hard disks (VHD and VHDX) directly from the Settings app. Previously, this could only be done through the outdated Disk Management utility.
The new feature allows you to create VHD and VHDX disks up to 2040 GB and 64 TB, respectively, with a fixed or dynamic size. After creation, you can select the type of partition table (GPT or MBR) and format the disk.
Also in build 25300, there is a new home page for the Settings app, but currently it does not contain any elements. This should change in future builds.
The Settings app has new settings for user presence detection. Now not only the operating system can access the sensors, but also third-party applications that have been given the appropriate permission.
“For You” is the new name for the “Recommended” section of the Start menu. It is assumed that the selection of content for this section will be done by artificial intelligence.
