Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25272 Announcement (Dev Channel

Good evening friends! Microsoft has released a new preview build of Windows 11 25272 for Windows Insider program members using the Dev channel.

Complete build number: 10.0.25272.1000.rs_prerelease.221216-1237.

Changes and improvements

  • General:
    • The Quick Support app has been moved from the Windows Tools section of the Start menu so that it can now be quickly found in the list of all applications.
    • Microsoft has removed the suggested action to find copied text using Edge. Also removed the display of popular sites in the “Recommended” area in the “Start” menu. Both changes were implemented in build 25247.
  • WSL:
    • The preinstalled version of Windows Subsystem for Linux has been removed from the system since build 25267. When you install a build with this change, you will need to upgrade to the latest version of WSL using instructions from GitHubto continue using WSL. This needs to be done once, so when upgrading to future builds, these steps will not be required. Later, Microsoft wants to automate the process.
