Dev and Canary Windows 11 Build 26100.1 (ge_release) rolled out

Both Dev and Canary channels obtained a new update, Windows 11 Build 26100.1 without any new features, some bug fixes, and known issues. The same build for these 2 channels is a short-term arrangement as shortly, the Canary Channel will receive higher build numbers. As of now, several features may begin pushing to the Canary Channel first before the Active Development Branch.
