Microsoft released the new update to the Windows Insider Programme, and the Company is making available the update Build 25252 to the Windows 11 Beta Channel. These features and improvements will likely debut in the next feature drop of Windows 11.

Microsoft released another major update to the Windows Developer channel. This update comes with a handful of upgrades. Both the Beta and Dev updates are the same and don’t bring any significant changes to Windows Insiders. 

  • Taskbar & System Tray: There is a new VPN Status icon in the System tray whenever your device is connected to VPN. Where the interment connectivity status icon changes with the overlayed small shied with an accent colour to show your device having an active VPN network connection. 

However, it doesn’t work if you’re using a VPN client like Proton VPN, Nord VPN or else. For this, you need to set up the VPN Profile on your Network and Internet Settings. This is quite handy since users don’t have to worry about the Culter system tray. 

  • Search on Taskbar: Microsoft has been testing a new visual for the Search, where it now has the Search Box. You can try this from the Windows Settings; under Personalization appear within the taskbar> Taskbar items. 

Popularly known as “Search in Windows 11,” the search box is now more functional. Previously it used to open he Windows 11 Start Search. This looks better since it doesn’t waste space on the taskbar. However, this feature is not available for everyone, but if you want to enable this on your pc, then you can check the following instructions mentioned down below. 

  • Download ViveTool from GitHub, and store it in a location from where you can easily navigate. 
  • Open Command Prompt as administrator from Windows Search. 
  • Next, enter the ViveTool File Location (ex: c:\\Vive). 
  • Enter vivetool /enable /id:40887771, and then Restart your PC. 
  • That’s it! 

This search bar is now more square, with graphics for a daily search highlight similar to Windows 10. Microsoft Windows Blog has details about known bugs that could affect users.
