Windows 11: Microsoft finally adds a tabbed file explorer and an improved taskbar among other changes

Microsoft may have already released Windows 11 22H2, but it has also introduced even more new features to its operating system. While some are just announcing the return of functionality that didn’t make the transition from Windows 10 to previous Windows 11 builds, others have been waiting a long time. In a blog post, Microsoft outlines the following:

Tabbed File Explorer Suggested ActionsTaskbar OverflowRight click on Task Manager taskbar Improved device sharingRevised Photos appGreater availability of Amazon AppstoreNew sports and entertainment apps

It’s worth noting that the new Photos app won’t be released until the end of October, while the planned iCloud Photo Library integration won’t be ready until sometime in November. In addition, the Amazon Appstore within Windows 11 remains geofenced. Currently, the feature is active in 31 countries, although Microsoft’s definition of countries also includes dependencies and territories such as Christmas Island, Jersey, and Tokelau.

Perhaps the most significant change is the inclusion of tabs in File Explorer, although the ability to open the Task Manager from the taskbar is handy. According to Microsoft, most of the features are already delivered via an optional non-security preview release. In addition, Microsoft is doing a phased rollout through its service technology and Microsoft Store updates. You can read more about Microsoft’s latest changes to Windows 11 in the blog post.
