The first update of the preview version of Windows 11 is released in real time with an attached version blog post which details all the changes, corrections and errors that we should be waiting for. Some of the existing changes to Windows 11 include a UI renewal, AutoHDR for gaming, and a change in BSOD; This week's update focuses on the Windows 11 taskbar.
Windows 11 Release Notes:
- Start now has a search box to make it easier to find what you are looking for.
- The taskbar will now be displayed on various monitors that can be activated using Settings> Personalization> Taskbar.
- We've updated several system alert dialogs, such as the alert when the battery is running low on the laptop or when you change the screen settings with the new visual design of Windows 11.
- "Power mode" settings are now available on the Power and Battery Settings page.
- Right-clicking on the desktop now has a refresh option directly without having to click "Show more options".
- Right-click an .ps1 file in File Explorer and now you have the Run with PowerShell options directly without having to click "Show more options".
- Connection designs available when using smaller, vertically-oriented computers have been optimized for this posture. You can now choose to grab three apps on top of each other, instead of four quadrants.
- Based on the collaboration with the most popular GIF provider in China, weshineapp.com, GIF selections are now available for Windows Insiders in China via the emoji dashboard (WIN +.). If the location is set to China, the GIF data will appear on weshineapp.com.
- Right-clicking the volume icon on the taskbar now includes an option to troubleshoot sound issues.
The most significant and notable update to Build 22000.65 is a search bar in the start menu. Other enhancements include installation layouts optimized for smaller screens and updated power mode settings.
There still seems to be an ongoing problem with certain features and applications being lost in upgrading from Windows 10 to Windows 11, such as Cortana or Internet Explorer.
