This was a great start to the day!

Dev Channel, Build 22000.51 came as surprise when I fired the ISO up earlier today – check out some of the new features!

Dynamic Refresh Rate

Dynamic Refresh Rate allows your PC to automatically boost the refresh rate when you’re inking or scrolling (which means you’ll get a smoother experience) and lower when you don’t need it so that your laptop can save power.

Snap groups

Snap groups are a way to easily switch back to your snapped windows. To try this out, snap together at least 2 app windows on your screen. Hover over one of these open apps on the Taskbar to find the snap group and click to quickly switch back.

Desktops

Access your Desktops via Task View (WIN + Tab) on the Taskbar. You can reorder and customize the backgrounds for each of your Desktops. You can also mouse-over Task View on the Taskbar for quick access to your existing Desktops or to create a new one!

Snap layouts

Just hover your mouse over a window’s maximize button to see available snap layouts, then click on a zone to snap the window!

Docking

When you undock your laptop, the windows on your external monitor will be minimized.

Sounds

The sounds in Windows 11 have been designed to be lighter and more atmospheric. They are also slightly different depending on whether your Windows theme is in dark mode or light mode. The startup sound for Windows also makes its return in which you’ll hear when your PC boots up to the Lock screen and is ready to go for you to login.

File Explorer

We made File Explorer modern with a clean look and brand-new command bar. We have also introduced beautifully designed context menus when right-clicking in File Explorer or on your desktop.

Start!

Start puts everything you need on your PC at the center with a set of pinned apps and a cloud powered “Recommended” section that shows your recently opened files from both your PC and across your devices like your smartphone with OneDrive

Increase your productivity and creativity with these new multitasking features!

Multitasking

You can find the settings for these features under System > Display > Multiple Displays.

Docking

When you undock your laptop, the windows on your external monitor will be minimized. When you re-dock your computer to your monitor, Windows puts everything back exactly where you had it before!

New Design!
