If you have installed the Windows 11 operating system on your computer through the Dev channel and want to switch to the Beta channel for a more reliable user experience, then you can easily do so from the Settings.

In this step-by-step guide, we will show you how to change from Dev channel to the Beta channel of the Windows Insider Program for the Windows 11 OS.
