A new release for the Dev channel, Windows 11 Build 23595, comes with a number of changes made to Copilot. As earlier spotted, it is now resides in the system tray. It is also support multi-head configurations. There are also Ink, sharing, and Task Manager improvements.


What's new in Windows 11 Build 23595 (Dev)

Windows Copilot

Microsoft has moved the Copilot icon to the right side of the system tray in the taskbar so that it is closer to where the Copilot panel opens. Given this change, we have decided to disable the Show Desktop feature for the far right corner of the taskbar by default. This feature can be returned in Settings > Personalization > Taskbar > Taskbar Behavior. To quickly get to this section, right-click on the taskbar and select “Taskbar Settings.”

Also, Microsoft is again rolling out the change introduced in build 23570, which allows Copilot for Windows to be used on multiple monitors. To do this, simply click on the Copilot button on the taskbar on the monitor on which you want to see Copilot. You can also use the WIN + C keyboard shortcut to display Copilot on the monitor where it was last used. If you're using only the keyboard, you can use WIN + T to bring focus to the taskbar and navigate to the Copilot button on the taskbar.

The Share feature

If you're signed in with a MicrosoftEntra ID (AAD) account, you'll now be able to send content via the Share dialog to your Microsoft Teams contacts (work and school), as well as to specific channels and group chats.

NearBy share

You can now find and share files with Android devices from the Share dialog using the Nearby Share feature in Bluetooth search mode.

Windows Ink

Handwriting input over text fields is now available in the following languages: Simplified Chinese (PRC), English (Australia), English (Canada), English (India), English (UK), French (Canada), French (France) ), German (Germany), Italian (Italy), Japanese (Japan), Korean (Korea), Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish (Mexico), and Spanish (Spain).
