Windows 11 preview build makes it easier to learn why your computer crashes

Windows 11 operating system Preview Build 25276 is currently available for download from the Windows Insider Program. The big draw is a new diagnostic tool that will help in troubleshooting. Also in the latest package from Microsoft are some design tweaks and several bug fixes.

The new tool will allow users to create a Live kernel memory dump (Opens in a new tab) (LKD) for their system to help diagnose problems. A memory dump, also known as a kernel dump, is a record of a computer’s memory at a certain time, usually when an operating system or an application is experiencing some performance issues. Microsoft states that you will be able to get a history of these problems as they happen in real time without interrupting Windows 11 from working as usual. The goal is to speed up the troubleshooting process for “high impact failures and hang-ups”.
