And hold on, because it gets better. The new settings homepage learns your vibe! Yes, it adapts to your specific needs, showing you shortcuts to settings you hang out with the most—be it display tweaks, sound adjustments, or search permissions.

Microsoft isn't stopping at that. Ever forget how much cloud space you have left on OneDrive? Wondering about your Xbox or Microsoft 365 subscriptions? This snazzy page keeps tabs on those too, displaying cards that keep you in the loop. Microsoft is starting us off with up to seven of these interactive cards, with a promise of more in the pipeline.

Also in the wings is the Windows Backup app. Making a tech move to a new PC? This app ensures your new computer feels just like home. It brings along all your pinned apps, so you won't miss a beat. And about the Dynamic Lighting feature, soon you'll be able to sync your Windows accent colors with your peripherals for that total immersive experience.

Bottom line, the Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22631.2262, now rolling out to the Beta Channel, is making your Windows experience sleeker, smoother, and oh-so-personal.
