Microsoft has released Windows 11 Preview Build 22000.65, which is available to Preview Participants. A number of changes have been made to the new assembly, which should make the process of working with the operating system more comfortable.
One of the most notable changes concerns the Start menu, which has a full search bar. Another search bar, as before, is at the top of the widgets menu. The power mode settings are displayed on the Power & Battery page in the Options menu. Changing the “Power Modes” is also available through the context menu, which can be called by clicking on the battery icon on the taskbar (relevant for laptops). The user can easily increase the performance of the device or, conversely, decrease it in order to extend the battery life.
One of the handy features of Windows 11 is the new window snapping layouts, which allow the user to arrange application windows on the screen according to their preferences. In the new build, this feature is optimized for small screen devices when used in portrait orientation. The developers also updated the design of some of the system warning dialog boxes to more closely match the look and feel of Windows 11.
The taskbar will now appear on multiple monitors, which can be enabled via Settings> Personalization> Taskbar. Right-clicking on the desktop allows you to immediately select the Refresh option without having to click Show Advanced Options. Right-clicking the volume icon in the taskbar now enables the option to troubleshoot audio issues.
Microsoft has also made many small fixes to improve the stability of the operating system. You can view the full changelog for Windows 11 Build 22000.65 here.
