The latest Windows 11 Insider Preview Build brings the Task Manager to its taskbar with an added link.
Since Windows 11’s release in October 2021, users have requested the Task Manager within the Taskbar. It seems Microsoft has heard the feedback and suggestions of the users as it is rolling the most awaited feature in the new Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25211 rolled out to the Dev Channel this week.
Meanwhile, Microsoft’s Amanda Langowski and Brandon LeBlanc said, “Based on your feedback, we’ve added a link to Task Manager when right-clicking on the taskbar.
Support for rearranging System Tray icons is also rolling out to Insiders who have the System Tray updates from Build 25197. If your PC does not have these changes, your System Tray experience will remain the same as before.”
Besides the Task Manager link, Microsoft is also introducing a new settings experience for Widgets permitting users to set the widgets board open when a user hovers the mouse on the taskbar icon.
The widgets also show notification badges and announcements. Additionally, Windows Build 22623.730 enhances the touch experience of the Windows 11 taskbar on tablets and touch devices.
Talking about the touch enhancement in the build, Langowski and LeBlanc said, “Your taskbar will automatically transition to this optimized version when you disconnect or fold back the keyboard on your 2-in-1 device. This feature only works on devices that can be used as tablets. It does not work on laptops or desktop PCs.”
