Microsoft brings back Task Manager shortcut to Windows 11 taskbar



Windows 11

Tech giant, Microsoft has released new Windows 11 Build to Insiders in the Dev Channel that brings a new settings experience for widgets along with the return of the Task Manager shortcut.

The update includes a handful of new features that specific users will welcome. After installing the build, right-clicking the taskbar will now show a link to the Task Manager. The Snipping Tool will automatically save screenshots as well, the report said.

This isn’t the only feature rolling out with the latest update, but it’s definitely the most impressive. Bug fixes come with this build too, but there are some rougher spots users should be aware of. This particular update has only rolled out in the Dev Channel and shouldn’t affect Windows Insider subscribers who use the Beta Channel, or Release Preview builds of Windows.

The widget picker and Widgets settings have been separated in this build of Windows 11. This should make it a bit easier to navigate to the desired destination, the report said.

This build includes preliminary support to rearrange System Tray icons for Insiders with the System Tray updates that began rolling out with Build 25197.

Here are the more substantial updates that are going to roll out in Preview Build 25211:

  • Behaviors on the Widgets board can now be adjusted. You can now choose whether the Widgets board opens when you hover over it, whether or not the taskbar displays notification badges for Widgets, or whether the taskbar displays rotating updates from your Widgets.
  • The Task Manager can now be summoned by right-clicking on the taskbar, be still my heart.
  • The Snipping Tool automatically saves screenshots now!
