Washington [US]October 19 (ANI): The American multinational technology corporation Microsoft has released another update for its Windows 11 operating system, which brings a host of new features.

The addition of tabs in the default Windows File Explorer is possibly the biggest change. Just like in a modern web browser, users can open different file directories at once, displayed in tabs. There’s even an option to pin the ones you use the most.

Deeper OneDrive integration lets users track changes and comments on files shared with colleagues, for example, and Windows 11 can now suggest commonly used file-sharing actions and contacts, GSM Arena reported.

Also, the system can recognize future dates so that users can click and add an event to their Calendar or various types of text such as phone numbers, emails, etc. Windows will highlight that text and allow users to call using Phone Link, Teams, or Skype.

According to GSM Arena, the taskbar overflow feature is not new to Windows in general, but it is a welcome addition to Windows 11 in particular. Users can now add more apps to the taskbar and an “overflow” button will let you see all the remaining pinned apps.

Sharing files with other devices and applications is now easier even if the files are in local storage or even on the desktop.

Meanwhile, the Photos app is expecting a big update as Microsoft plans to introduce a better gallery with simplified navigation, location sorting, and management. Deeper integration for easy OneDrive backup is also on the menu.

This update is apparently available for those who chose the optional non-security preview, while a broader rollout is expected next month alongside the security update, according to GSM Arena. (AND ME)
