Although we recently learned about all the changes that came to the public build of Windows 11, such as the redesign of some apps, new features in the taskbar, or Android apps in the OS, the company has returned to offer us a long list of changes also coming soon to users and that are already available for those who have joined their insiders program.
La Insider Preview Build 22557 de Windows 11 It is now availableand among the changes we find news in the real-time subtitle generation system, improvements in the browser, new gestures, and much more.
Windows 11 receives many changes, and now it looks more like what was announced
Everything indicates that Windows 11 is already having a large part of the news promised by Microsoft, as well as improving its user experience. Although at its launch we found it somewhat empty and being a mixture of ideas still unfinished, little by little we are seeing color in this operating system.
One of the most notable changes in this new update has to do with the new start menu. Now users will be able to customize the pin section and group apps into folders. To do this, simply drag one app onto another and a folder will automatically be generated. However, the names of the folders cannot be edited yet, something that Microsoft has in mind in updating soon.
Another of the features that are going to make an impression on users (especially if you were fans of Windows 8), are the new touch gestures for Windows 11. The company has added five new gestures to make the tablet experience much more optimal. In this way, we can access the quick settings with just a gesture to activate the airplane mode or Bluetooth, and open the start menu with an improved animation. In addition, we will no longer inadvertently drag a full screen app when touching the edges, since Microsoft has added a function to block the movement. The company also claims that when we rotate the device to landscape mode it will be faster and more responsive.
One of the novelties that Microsoft took advantage of with the arrival of Windows 11 was the way in which windows could be distributed quickly and efficiently. However, certain tweaks to this feature were still missing. Now it comes enhanced with the ability to see how the window layout looks at the top before making the change. To do this, simply keep dragging the window until we see the icons at the top.
As for another list of striking changes we also find Focus mode improvementsadding a ‘Do Not Disturb’ feature to better silence notifications, or autogenerated subtitles, which can be activated using the Windows + CTRL + L shortcut and will appear in any multimedia content that includes audio. Subtitles are added to a window, and can be set to be placed either at the top or bottom of the screen.
Among the other improvements that Microsoft has announced, it is also worth mentioning the return of being able to drag and drop on the taskbar, one of the most basic deficiencies of Windows that we did find in previous versions. In addition, in the quick settings menu we can now easily add files and from Microsoft they have added a function to see our OneDrive storage easier in the file explorer.
In a boast of improving energy consumption in Windows 11, Microsoft has also adjusted the screen off and sleep times. However, the company ensures that we will only see these changes after a clean installation of Windows 11. This means that on new PCs we may see somewhat more extensive consumption management.
From Microsoft they have also given the starting signal to the new redesign of the Task Manager, now counting on an aspect more in line with this new operating system. It also includes the dark mode, and a mode to limit the resource consumption of certain apps.
To see the complete list of changes, you can access the official Web from Microsoft. All these novelties are present in the new build for insiders, which means that we will have to wait a few months until these changes become reality in the stable version and for all users.
