What's new in Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25247

Recommended websites in the Start menu

The Start Menu's recommended section will display a new content type called common websites. These are essentially trending websites based on your region or browsing history. Microsoft says that this is the first phase of testing the feature, so things could change in the future.

Users may remove a website by right-clicking on it. This feature is rolling out to users, so it may not be available for everyone.

Thankfully, Microsoft says that the feature can be disabled completely. I don't have access to it yet, but the option to turn off recommended websites should likely appear in the Settings > Personalization > Start page.

Seconds in the System Tray Clock

New Suggested Action for searchable text

Suggested Actions will now display a pop-up when you copy a text that has search potential. When you click on the selected action, a new Edge tab will be launched to run the search for the selected words.
