Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23419 Announcement (Dev Channel)

Good evening friends! Microsoft has released a new preview build of Windows 11 23419 for Windows Insider program members using the Dev channel.

As a reminder, insiders who were previously on the Dev channel are automatically transferred to the new Canary channel. If you force the Dev channel in your Windows Insider settings while you’re on build 25309, you won’t get build 23403. This is because this build number is lower than the one you’re running. If you do not want to stay on the Canary channel, then you need to completely reinstall Windows 11. You can find details about the changes in our previous article.

Complete build number: 10.0.23419.1000.ni_prerelease.230317-1432.


Creating real-time kernel memory dumps

Microsoft has introduced a set of new “Task Manager” features that are designed for developers. With these, users can create real-time kernel memory dumps (LKD) in addition to existing “core dumps” for processes. The purpose of such a dump is to collect data to eliminate the anomalous situation, while the operating system can continue working. This reduces downtime compared to error checking for “non-fatal” but high-impact crashes and freezes. Details about the innovation can be found by this link.

To create a real-time kernel memory dump, go to the “Details” page in the “Task Manager”, right-click on the system process and select “Create live kernel memory dump file”. The dump will be saved in the following directory:


You can also go to the Options page in the Task Manager to view or change the settings for real-time kernel memory dumps.

USB4 settings page

Added a settings page for USB4 hubs and devices in the “Settings” -> “Bluetooth and Devices” -> “USB” section. USB4 delivers higher performance for docking stations, high performance peripherals, displays and chargers. The USB4 settings page provides information about the capabilities of the system and connected peripherals if the computer supports USB4. This information will help you troubleshoot if users need help from the device manufacturer or system administrator.

Features available on this page:

  • View connected hubs and USB4 devices in a tree format.
  • View attributes and features associated with USB4.
  • Copying data to the clipboard so that it can be passed on to a helpdesk or system administrator for troubleshooting.

If the system does not support USB4 through Microsoft USB4 Connection Manager, this page will not be displayed.

If the system supports USB4, then in the “Device Manager” you can find “USB4 Host Router”.

Word prediction cloud for Simplified Chinese IME

Microsoft is testing some changes that will make it easy to type modern and popular words in Simplified Chinese. For this, an improved cloud-based word prediction feature has been added. This feature will add the most relevant word from the Bing search engine to the IME suggestion box. The logic has also been updated so that the system can offer you better results.

Search suggestions are also integrated, which are similar to what you see when you type a search term in Bing. You can either paste the suggestion as text or search for it in Bing.

To enable these features, you must click on the chevron button in the upper right corner of the IME suggestion window.

Changes and improvements

  • Are common:
    • This build includes the previously announced improvements to change default apps in Windows 11. A new feature for pinning apps to the taskbar is coming in future builds.
  • Start menu:
    • For some insiders, the “Recommended” section of the Start menu will now be called “For you.”
  • Taskbar and system tray:
    • The VPN status icon displayed over an active network connection in the taskbar now uses the system accent color when you are connected to a recognized VPN profile.
    • Based on feedback, Microsoft has added the ability to display seconds for the clock on the taskbar. This feature can be enabled in Settings -> Personalization -> Taskbar under Taskbar Behavior. You can also right-click on the taskbar to quickly navigate to its settings. The feature is currently not available to all Insiders in the Dev channel, but Microsoft hopes to be able to offer it to more users soon.
  • Search on the taskbar:
    • When you access the new Bing, a new button will appear in the taskbar search box that opens the Bing chatbot in Microsoft Edge. If the new Bing is not available to you, then the search field will display a button to dynamically highlight text. This change is currently not available to all Insiders.
  • Voice control:
    • The updated help page in the voice control settings application, introduced in build 23403, now contains all available commands and additional information for them.
  • Options:
    • Due deprecation of Microsoft Support Diagnostic Tool (MSDT) and MSDT TroubleshootersMicrosoft has begun redirecting some of the troubleshooting tools found in Settings > System > Troubleshoot and other areas of the OS to the new Technical Support tool.
    • Pressing the Print Screen key now opens the Scissors tool by default. This setting can be turned off under Options -> Accessibility -> Keyboard. If you previously changed this setting yourself, then its value will be saved.
  • For developers:


  • Are common:
    • Improved post-boot login experience by reducing the performance impact of auto-launched applications.
  • Taskbar and system tray:
    • We fixed an issue that caused Narrator to not announce the position before the icon name on the taskbar.
    • We fixed an issue that caused the Show Hidden Icons menu to appear behind items such as OneNote popups and live captions.
    • We fixed an issue that could cause explorer.exe to crash when dragging and dropping items.
  • Search on the taskbar:
    • Fixed a crash in Windows Search seen in the previous build.
  • Conductor:
    • We fixed an issue that could cause explorer.exe to crash when opening the home page if certain content was displayed in the Recent section.
    • Some changes have been made to improve the performance of launching Explorer in the event that a disconnected network drive was present in the navigation panel.
  • Start menu:
    • We fixed an issue where dragging content into an open folder in the Start menu could cause the menu to crash.
  • Input:
    • We fixed an issue that prevented the computer from entering Modern Standby mode after using voice input.
  • Live subtitles:
    • We fixed an issue resulting in Traditional Chinese Live Subtitles not working on ARM64 devices.
  • Task Manager:
    • We fixed an issue resulting in some details on the Performance page not displaying correctly until you resize the window or switch between pages.

Note. Some of the fixes listed above may be included in cumulative updates for release versions of Windows 11.

Known Issues

  • Search on the taskbar:
    • After updating to Build 23403, some users may be missing the taskbar search box and/or taskbar search settings Microsoft is aware of the issue and is working on a fix.
  • Conductor:
    • Keyboard shortcut hints may not appear if no keys are pressed. Pressing the key will make them appear.
    • Problems with commands for recommended files:
      • When you click on the “Share” button, a system window will open, not a window from OneDrive.
      • When you click on the “File Location” button, an error window will appear, which can be easily closed.
      • Clicking on the “Remove from list” button will not lead to any action.
  • Live captions:
    • On ARM64 devices, enhanced speech recognition support set on the Language and Region page will require restarting live captioning after changing the language in the subtitle menu.
    • Some languages ​​displayed on the Language and Region page support speech recognition (such as Korean), but do not yet support live captioning.
    • When adding a language using the Language and Region page, the installation progress of language features may be hidden, and you will not see when the installation of Enhanced Speech Recognition (required for Live Captions) is completed. You can use “Language Options” to track progress. If this happens, there may be an unexpected delay before the Live Captions setup system detects the new language and allows you to continue.
    • Subtitle display speed may be slower when using languages ​​other than English. There is also no detection of languages ​​other than English (United States), which means that incorrect subtitles may be displayed for speech other than the subtitle language.

We wish you a successful update!
