American multinational technology company Microsoft has revealed a new Windows 11 build for Insiders on the Beta and Dev channels. The new build number is 22000.132, and it includes a slew of bug fixes.

The upgraded Snipping Tool, Calculator, Mail, and Calendar apps have begun testing in the Dev Channel with Windows Insider users. While some apps have gone through dramatic modifications, others fit in better with Windows 11’s new appearance.

New visuals will be included in the new Snipping Tool for Windows 11. It will include new features such as the WIN + SHIFT + S keyboard shortcut from Snip & Sketch, as well as enhanced editing.

Further, a new settings page will be available, and the WIN + SHIFT + S keyboard shortcut can be used to snap screenshots. After taking a screenshot, the snipping menu will appear, with options such as Rectangular Snip, Freeform Snip, Windows Snip, and Fullscreen Snip available.

The new Snipping Tool will provide annotation editing options as well as cropping improvements. The Snipping Tool also syncs with the Windows Theme, so if dark mode is enabled, the app will display in the grey scheme as well.

With Windows 11, the calculator app receives a new look that matches the OS’s style. The calculator has been redone in C#, according to Microsoft, so that more people can contribute to it on GitHub.

A Programmer Mode will be included in the Calculator app, which will include programming and engineering-related functions. It will also be able to convert between over 100 different units and currencies.
