  • Windows 11 Insider Build 25300 brings virtual disk creation to the Settings app and other exciting features.
  • It lets you add VHD/VHDX units comfortably without using Disk Management or PowerShell.
  • Find out here if you can enable it just yet.

Just like what Microsoft did by revamping the File Explorer look with a new XAML-based gallery and introducing end task on taskbar on Windows 11 Insider Build 25300, the latest build reportedly comes with a virtual disk creation feature in its settings.

As spotted by Albacore (@thebookisclosed) on Twitter, the feature is supported but it’s still completely hidden without third-party registry tweaks here and there.

The feature to add VHD/VHDX units is now available through Disk Management from the Start menu or PowerShell, but once this feature is out for the public, you can create the units comfortably in the Settings app.

Additionally, the Windows enthusiast also says that the build comes with a brand-new look for Home in Settings, a built-in presence sensing feature that lets the device scans for sensors to detect users nearby and allow them to control apps, and a little tweak for keyboard’s settings.

The short answer is not yet, as there is no ID to be used in ViVeTool. We will keep you updated once it’s live, but in the meantime, make sure to download the latest ViVeTool on GitHub.  

With that being said, it’s still worth noting that being an insider-only feature that isn’t out for primetime yet, you may be running into some performance problems here and there.
