Windows 11 is set to be released later in the year, but you can already run it now as part of the Windows Insider Program.

If you would like to try out the new operating system in a virtualized environment, or on a spare PC, the good news is the tech giant has made ISO files for Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.132 available to download now.

Using these ISO files will take you through the new Windows 11 out of box experience (OOBE) set up process, which Microsoft says is "designed to build excitement for Windows 11 right from the moment you first turn on a new Windows 11 PC for the very first time."

One big new change is during setup you can now name your PC, an inclusion Microsoft added following user feedback.

The new ISOs are available to download from the Windows Insider Preview Downloads page. You will need to be in the Insider Program to get them.
