Announcing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26200 (Canary Channel)

Hello Windows Insiders,

Today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26200 to the Canary Channel.

(Note the .5001 after the build number does not mean anything relevant to Windows Insiders and we will continue to use the primary build number for these flight blog posts.)

With the Canary Channel moving to a higher build number, the window closes on being able to switch to the Dev Channel without doing a clean-install of Windows. If you haven’t switched channels yet, you can still do so BEFORE taking Build 26200.

Developers, please note that for a short period of time, we will not be releasing a SDK for builds we flight to the Canary Channel.
