Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25262 Announcement (Dev Channel)

Good evening friends! Microsoft has released a new preview build of Windows 11 25262 for Windows Insider program members using the Dev channel.

Complete build number: 10.0.25262.1000.rs_prerelease.221205-1627.

Important! Recently, builds under the Windows Insider program have become unavailable to users from Russia and the Republic of Belarus, probably due to geo-blocking. If you are affected by this problem, then enable the VPN by selecting any European country, check for updates in Windows Update, wait for the download to begin, and disable the VPN. You can read more about this situation in our article.

The Community team recommends using AdGuard VPN or Windscribe.

Known Issues

  • General:
    • Based on feedback, Microsoft is removing the audio playback issue from its list of known issues. If you are still experiencing issues, please send good review of this.
    • We are investigating reports that recent Insider builds have seen an increase in crashes in some apps and games.
    • We are investigating reports of some UI elements sometimes disappearing and reappearing in apps in the last few builds.
    • Insiders may experience problems transferring content to a wireless display (WIN + K). Engineers are working to fix the problem.
  • Task bar:
    • Sometimes the taskbar is cut in half when using the tablet-optimized version.
    • Microsoft is working on a fix for an issue causing the Bluetooth section in Quick Actions to crash. If you encounter this problem, then temporarily use the “Settings” -> “Bluetooth and devices” section.
  • Search on the taskbar (if new field display options are available):
    • [Новое] In some cases, the search field on the taskbar may not display correctly, including with visual artifacts.
    • When changing the primary monitor, such as connecting an external display, a floating search box appears on the desktop. This problem can be solved by going to Personalization -> Taskbar -> Search and toggling the setting.

    • The content area on the Processes page may flash once when changing the theme in the Task Manager settings.
    • We are investigating an issue where Task Manager does not properly display light and dark content, resulting in unreadable text. This happens if the “Custom” mode is selected in the “Options” -> “Personalization” -> “Colors” section. As a workaround, choose a light or dark theme.
    • Some Insiders may be missing items on the Startup Apps page. If you encounter this problem, then use the “Settings” -\u003e “Applications” -\u003e “Startup” section.
  • Widgets:
    • [New] We are investigating an issue where Insiders in China may experience a Widget Bar stuck in an invisible state, causing the system to not register mouse clicks on the left side of the screen. If you encounter this, then use the combination WIN + D to solve the problem.
    • In right-to-left languages ​​(such as Arabic), the content of the widget bar animates out of view when switching to the full-screen version of the widget bar.
