Windows 11 build 22635.3140

Windows 11 build 22635.3140 arrives with Copilot and Start menu changes in Beta Channel

Another preview of Windows 11 arrives in the Beta Channel with minor changes for Copilot and Start menu.

  • Microsoft has now relocated the Copilot button to the System Tray of the Taskbar.
  • Also, the Start menu will now group recently installed apps and show upcoming meetings.

On February 8, following the release of the first preview for version 24H2, Microsoft released the Windows 11 build 22635.3140 (KB5034851) in the Beta Channel of the Windows Insider Insider Program with minor changes.

According to the official notes, build 22635.3140 relocates the Copilot button to the right side of the Taskbar in the System Tray and disables the “Show the desktop” button by default to prevent being too close to the chatbot. You can always enable the option again from Settings > Personalization > Taskbar.

Also, the Start menu now groups recently added apps into a folder in the “Recommended” section. In addition, users with a device running Windows 11 Pro or Enterprise editions logged in with an Entra ID will now see upcoming meeting notifications. The notifications will show up only five minutes before the meeting in the “Recommended” section.

Although these are new changes in the Beta Channel, the company has been testing these improvements for several months, first through the Dev Channel and then through the Canary Channel.

This is everything available on the update KB5034851. However, Microsoft has also released the build 26052 in the Canary and Dev Channel with many changes and new features. For example, Windows 11 now includes support for the “sudo” command similar to Linux and macOS, Copilot gains a new context menu that reacts depending on the content you copied to the clipboard, and the legacy Color Management settings are now part of the Settings.

Also, the company unveiled that it plans to release Windows 11 24H2 during the second half of 2024, and build 26052 reveals the first draft of the improvements coming in the next version of the operating system.

Once you enroll the computer in the program, you can download the build from the “Windows Update” settings by turning on the “Get the latest updates as soon as they’re available” toggle switch and clicking the “Check for Updates” button.
