Windows 11 build 25140 here to quash some bugs


Another Wednesday, another new Windows 11 preview build. This time, we have access to build 25140 that has landed in the Dev channel of the Windows Insider Program.

And this one is high on bug fixes, along with plenty of changes, improvements, and refinements.

This is, as you may be aware, part of the Sun Valley 3 development branch for Windows Insiders, which will be released as Windows 11 23H2. In other words, the version of the operating system that will be make its way in 2023.

So, for a version that is expected next year, this build is not too big on new features. But there are plenty of bug fixes to go around for everyone on top of small changes and enhancements.

You can find the official blog post here.

In terms of changes and improvements, the Windows development team lists one item. That is an update to the Euphemia typeface that covers most languages that use the Canadian Syllabic script. This font now has improved legibility and screen rendering of over 200 characters at various sizes.

For fixes, we have an issue taken care of that was leading some people seeing an unexpected error when copying files from network drives. Also fixed is a crash that could happen when switching modes in other panels.

Build 25140 also comes with a usual splattering of known issues that you may encounter. These have been collected and compiled towards the end of the announcement post, so give them a scan if you plan on deploying this particular build on your system.

No word in the blog post about the continued rollout of the tabbed File Explorer, which Microsoft is still testing as A/B.
