What is the Dev Channel?
Before we dive into the new features and enhancements of Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25300, it's important to understand what the Dev Channel is. The Dev Channel is part of the Windows Insider Program, which provides users with early access to the latest builds of Windows 11. These builds are often unstable and may contain bugs, so they are not recommended for everyday use.
The Dev Channel provides users with the earliest access to new Windows 11 features and updates. This channel is intended for developers and early adopters who want to test and provide feedback on new features and updates before they are released to the general public.
New features in Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25300
Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25300 brings several new features to the operating system. One of the most notable features is the ability to use a custom image for the login screen background. This feature allows users to personalize their login screen with their own images, providing a more customized experience when logging into Windows 11.
Another new feature in this build is the option to add or remove widgets from the Taskbar. This feature allows users to customize their Taskbar by selecting which widgets are displayed, providing a more streamlined and personalized experience. Users can also now select multiple desktops when using the virtual desktop feature, making it easier to organize and manage multiple open windows.

In addition to the new features, Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25300 also includes several enhancements to existing features. The File Explorer now supports a new context menu option for creating a new folder, which streamlines the process of creating new folders.
