Jul 24, 2023Jul 24, 2023

The latest preview update is here for Windows 11.

It's almost the end of August, which means Microsoft has a preview update for Windows 11 rolling out. The update includes several changes and improvements that should make their way to general users in September as long as there aren't any major issues. If all goes to plan, the same changes should ship on Patch Tuesday in September.

The update adds a hover behavior that makes the search box "gleam," according to Microsoft's release notes. Following the update, the Search app should be more reliable as well. Here are the highlights and a full list of improvements from Microsoft.

You can get the update now through the Settings app on Windows 11 by searching for optional updates. The update is also available through the Microsoft Update Catalog.
