Dev channel update to 96.0.1043.1 is live
Hello Insiders! Today we’re releasing build 96.0.1043.1 to the Dev channel. If you’re reading this, you likely got here by directly vising the Tech Community website, since we’re experiencing some issues getting the Welcome page to appear in the browser after it updates. We’re working to get it resolved, and believe it should be fixed in Canary as of today. In happier news this week, we’ve got an in-depth look at the improvements we’ve been making in Windows Task Manager: Improving how Microsoft Edge processes appear in Task Manager. Also:

Added features:
  • Added Share support to Windows 7.
  • Enabled Picture in Picture support on Windows.
  • Finished rolling out the ability to search the web for an image in the sidebar from the context menu.
  • Management policies (note that updates to documentation or administrative templates may not have occurred yet):
    • Added a policy to control if the Typosquatting Checker is Enabled, which is a feature that warns if the website being navigated to isn’t the one that was intended because the address was mistyped.
    • Added a policy to control if Renderer App Container support is Enabled, which controls if tab processes are created with extra security.
    • Added a policy to control if Application Guard Upload Blocking in Enabled, which controls if files are allowed to be uploaded from Application Guard window.
    • Added a policy to control when Efficiency Mode is active.
    • Added a policy to control if the New SmartScreen Library is Enabled, which will be deprecated and removed along with the legacy SmartScreen library.
    • Added a policy to control if Shared Links are Enabled, which controls access to the list in History of links shared by or to the user from other Microsoft 365 apps.
    • Added a policy to configure Force Sync Types, which determines which types of data are required to be synced.
We’re already nearing the end of 96, so we expect next week to be the last week for it to be in Dev!
