Just what I need! Bang on time, another Insider preview build is here for your consideration. This time Windows 11 build 25145 is beaming down from servers, and it packs a few interesting new features.
3 of them.
This is, of course, part of the Sun Valley 3 development branch. Microsoft is now fully focused on developing this next iteration of its operating system that is due next year as version 23H2. And it is shaping up as one very streamlined build thanks to some neat additions.
For starters, we have a something for Narrator. A new driver solution for the tool that gives it the ability to automatically change things around. This enables Braille devices to continue working while switching between Windows Narrator and third-party screen readers.
The big new highlight is improved OneDrive subscription management that is now available right in the Settings app.
Similar to those Microsoft 365 subscription management options that Microsoft rolled out in March, this one lets you view billing, payment methods and OneDrive storage usage for standalone 100GB subscriptions to the cloud storage service.
The page will also notify you if you are close to or above your OneDrive storage limit.
And finally, we have the return of the legacy Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) to Windows natively with this new build. Some new options are also added to this feature, details of which you can track from the announcement post.
This build also adds plenty of new changes and improvements on top of the usual splattering of bug fixes, which is right about the norm these days.
If you are enrolled in the Dev channel of the Windows Insider Program, then be sure to download and install this latest build on your test system and take it for a spin.
