Windows Backup in 23H2

New episodes every Thursday.
Category: Help & How To

Windows 11 version 23H2 includes a new app called Windows Backup that helps you configure OneDrive Folder Backup and create a backup of the list of apps you installed from the Microsoft Store on that PC along with a limited set of Windows settings you customized and your Wi-Fi passwords. You can then restore from this backup if you buy a new PC or reset your current PC. All of this functionality existed in Windows previously: If you sign in to Windows 11 with a Microsoft account, all of this happens automatically. But there are a few niceties that make Windows Backup unique, plus a few configuration possibilities that most users are probably not aware of.
