Vole claims that the update is aimed at making PCs easier and safer to use and improve productivity. This includes things like a better search and updates to the Start menu, faster and more accurate search, Quick Settings, improved local and current events coverage in your Widgets board, and tabs in File Explorer. There are also enhancements to Snap layouts, the new Focus feature, and performance and battery optimisations.
Vole claims that Snap layouts on Windows 11 were a game changer for multitasking, helping people optimise their view when they need to have multiple apps or documents in front of them at the same time.
"With the new update, we're making Snap layouts more versatile with better touch navigation and the ability to snap multiple browser tabs in Microsoft Edge. We're introducing Focus sessions and Do Not Disturb to help you minimize distractions that pull you away from the task at hand," Microsoft said.
This update will deliver performance optimisations to improve latency and unlock features like Auto HDR and Variable Refresh Rate on windowed games. And with Game Pass built right into Windows 11 through the Xbox app, players can access PC games.
Vole has also redesigned the Microsoft Store on Windows to be more open and easier-to-use and will be working closely with Amazon to expand the Amazon Appstore Preview to international markets. This will bring 20,000 Android apps and games to Windows 11 devices that meet the feature-specific hardware requirements.
