Windows 11 linked devices

Microsoft released the Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22635.3495 (KB5037000) to the Beta Channel, and it brought some important changes to Windows 11.

First off, the Redmond-based tech giant introduced 2 new Windows Spotlight experiences that will make the operating system even more interactive. However, as a downside to it, Microsoft also added a new app recommendation system that will take some space out of the Start panel. Fortunately, it can be turned off.

One of the most interesting additions to the KB5037000 patch is the new Linked Devices, which allows Windows 11 users to access their Xbox consoles and other PCs, directly from the operating system.

However, it has a downside: you must be logged in with your Microsoft account, and the new Linked Devices page is only available in the Home and Pro editions of Windows 11.

We are introducing a new Linked devices page under Settings > Accounts that allows you to manage PCs and Xbox consoles that you are signed in to with your Microsoft account. This settings page will only show on the Home and Pro editions of Windows 11 and if you’re signed into Windows with your Microsoft account.


The KB5037000 patch also introduced the ability to undock Copilot in Windows 11. The feature was first introduced in the Dev and Canary channels a while ago, and it allows for greater control over the AI tool.
