I saw in the release notes for rancher-desktop 1.7
Kubernetes 1.26 is only supported with the containerd engine in this release. Use Kubernetes 1.25 or earlier if you need to use the docker socket with the moby engine.

There is no clear tracking ticket yet, but it will be resolved for the next release
It will be a variant of Stop supporting cri-dockerd directly · Issue #3286 · rancher-sandbox/rancher-desktop: we will switch to using the bundled cri-dockerd for all k3s versions except 1.24.1 to 1.24.3, but not yet remove cri-dockerd itself (so we can still support those 3 k3s releases on dockerd). In the following release we will remove it, and those 3 releases will become unsupported; you have to either switch to 1.24.4+, or use containerd.
