Microsoft has started rolling out Windows 11 2022, known to Insiders and Microsoft watchers as 22H2, and while all of the new features expected with this second half of 2022 update did not make it in to the released version, Microsoft promised that these features would be rolling out soon. Some of these new features showed up today in the Release Preview Channel for Windows 11 Insiders, for those on build 22621.608.
According to a post on the Windows Insider blog, these features include:
- New! We enhance File Explorer. It now includes tabs to help you organize your File Explorer sessions like you do in Microsoft Edge. On the new File Explorer homepage, you can pin important files for quick and easy access. Using the power of Microsoft OneDrive, you can view your colleagues’ actions on your shared files. We also provide personalized suggestions based on your Microsoft 365 account.
- New! We add suggestions for actions when you copy items. For example, when you copy phone numbers or future dates, we provide suggestions, such as make a call with Teams or Skype or add an event in the Calendar app.
- New! We add a taskbar overflow menu. The taskbar will offer an entry point to a menu that shows you all your overflowed apps in one space.
- New! You can now share to more devices. You can discover and share to more devices, including desktops, using a nearby share.
As usual, these features are rolling out, so if you’re in the Windows 11 Release Preview Channel and don’t see them, have patience.
