Microsoft developers continue to integrate new features into Windows 11 test builds available through the Windows Insider Program. This time, Insiders have access to the Featured Files feature in Explorer.

As the name suggests, this tool recommends files that the user might want to open while interacting with the operating system. The innovation appeared in Windows 11 build number 23403 on the Dev channel. This indicates that this feature is under development, but may become part of the stable versions of the operating system in the future.

File suggestion reportedly works when signed in with an Azure Active Directory account. This may mean that this tool is aimed at enterprise users. Recommendations show files stored in cloud storage that belong to the user as well as those that colleagues have shared with them. Currently, not everyone in the Insiders program can see the featured files, as Microsoft wants to collect more feedback before making the feature more widely available.

In the mentioned compilation of Windows 11 there were other interesting innovations. For example, developers have added keyboard shortcut hints to the context menu in File Explorer. The icons shown at the top of the context menu and on the right are part of the keyboard shortcut and correspond to the names of the actions shown in the list. The live subtitles feature has gained support for Simplified and Traditional Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish.
