The latest pair of Windows 11 Insider builds for the Beta Channel are here, with some Task Manager improvements and more coming to the “new features rolling out” version (22623.891).
Here’s what’s coming:
The ability to filter processes in Task Manager has been a top request, and with this latest build you will be able to do just that. You can filter processes by “binary name, PID, or publisher name.”
“The filter algorithm matches the context keyword with all possible matches and displays them on the current page. The filter is also applied as you switch between pages. You can also use the keyboard shortcut ALT + F to focus on the filter box.”
Very helpful if you’re looking for a specific process in a sea of Task Manager items.
Theme support improvements
You can set a light or dark (or system settings theme in Task Manager regardless of the active theme in Windows, and:
“Task Manager now also supports themes for in-app dialogs. All dialog except for “Run new task” and Properties dialog now support themes and will adhere to either app specific theme or Windows theme.”
Efficiency mode improvements
It’s now easier to apply “efficiency mode,” which lowers process priority to improve power efficiency (but might cause some processes to become unstable).
There’s also a list of improvements, changes, and fixes for both 22623.891 and 22621.891, check them out in the Windows Insider blog post, and get to downloading.
Oh and by the way, if you’re waiting for a new Dev Channel build, looks like you’ll have to wait a bit longer:
No Dev release this week, should be back at it next week!
