Microsoft has released a new build for the Windows 11 Insider Dev Channel with build 23541. There isn’t a lot new with this build, instead, for some Windows Insiders, the rich thumbnail previews for cloud files may “temporarily disappear:”

  • Rich thumbnail previews (tooltips) for cloud files under Recommended on the Start menu and the ability to right-click to share on these files which rolled out with Build 23511 may temporarily disappear for some Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel.

Other than that, there are some fixes for issues with the taskbar, with Search on the Taskbar, and with Dev Drive, as well as some new known issues for File Explorer:

  • [NEW] Icons on the desktop may show as generic white pages rather than their proper icons.
  • [NEW] There is an issue where the progress wheel icon will get stuck in the File Explorer tab even though the folder has finished loading.
  • [NEW] Changing the sort order of folders doesn’t persist if you navigate away and back from the folder.
