Windows 11 laptop

Today, Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel have been given the chance to finally try out the promised Android apps feature on Windows 11.

Insiders in the Dev Channel also have a new Windows 11 flight to play around with -- Build 22483.

This new release only comes with one change of note and that’s that Microsoft has added the ability to right-click on either "Recommended" or the "More" button in Start to refresh the items shown there.
