The latest preview version of Windows 11 allows “live kernel dumps”

A kernel dump is an operation aimed at obtaining a snapshot of kernel memory at a given time. The information is stored in a file, which can be valuable when analyzing a crash. This is what Windows does for example in the event of a blue screen (the famous percentage at the bottom of the screen).

Build 25197, rolling out to the Dev Channel on Friday, now allows “ live kernel dumps “. No more question of restarting the machine: we can take a snapshot from task managerwithout interrupting the user experience.

The function actually appeared for several previews of the Dev channel, but systematically returned an error if one tried to use it.
