Microsoft is adding a force-quit app feature to the Windows 11 taskbar. Users no longer need to use Task Manager for these purposes.
The feature to force quit applications in the taskbar first appeared in early test builds of Windows 11, writes The Verge. As part of the Build for Developers conference, Microsoft confirmed that this feature will soon appear in the official build of the operating system. It will be part of a series of new Windows 11 features that the company plans to add as part of upcoming updates. Earlier it was announced that Windows 11 will also have built-in support for RAR and other archives, the Windows Copilot AI assistant and a new feature for Dev Home developers.
Microsoft also today released a new trial version of Windows 11 that includes another taskbar improvement that many users of this operating system have come to expect. It’s about the functionNever merge taskbar buttons‘, which makes it possible to disable grouping of buttons on the taskbar and display window titles next to application icons. It was absent from the release of the Windows 11 operating system and, like many other taskbar features, appeared with subsequent operating system updates.
The new build also includes a backup and restore feature, making it easy to restore apps, settings, and even Wi-Fi passwords to a new PC. The company has also redesigned some emojis for Windows 11 to make them more recognizable.
All these innovations will be available to all Windows 11 users in the coming months.
