After taking a week off, Microsoft is back with another Windows 11 Insider Preview build for the Dev Channel. Today's build is 22509, and features a handful of notable new changes and improvements that are the result of direct feedback from Insiders testing Windows 11 since June. Microsoft is finally adding a more adaptive layout to the Start menu, and bringing back the ability to display the clock on secondary monitors!

One of Windows 11's big complaints with the new Start menu has been that its layout isn't very flexible. In the current shipping build, you're stuck with three rows of pinned apps, and three rows of recent documents. In today's build, that's now changing. Users can now configure the Start menu to show either more pinned apps, or more recent documents by increasing the size of each area of the Start menu.

Additionally, Microsoft has responded to another bit of feedback regarding secondary monitors. This build finally allows you to re-enable the clock on extended monitors, a feature that was weirdly omitted from the shipping build of Windows 11.
