Microsoft releases a new build for Windows 11. The 22563 build comes just a week after the 22557 build that brings a lot of changes to the Start menu and other elements. Now, the update brings new features to the Windows taskbar. Microsoft is making the Windows 11 taskbar a little more tablet-friendly soon. The software giant start testing a new taskbar that’s designed for tablet use, with a smaller collapsed state that only shows critical information like the time and date or network and battery status.

Windows 11: Here’s the full changelog

The new tablet-optimized taskbar provides two options: A collapsed state for critical status icons only and an expanded state which is designed for easier touch interactions. This new taskbar only works on devices that can be used as tablets (including 2-in-1s) and not on laptops or desktop PCs. Other improvements include the introduction of the correct highlight effect for all system tray icons, a new dynamic UI for the widgets panel that appears to better integrate the news feed into your widgets layout, and other vital bug fixes and UI improvements.

Starting with this build, you will finally be able to turn off all Windows Update notifications that might distract your students during the school day. You will be able to see a better experience while staying compliant, as the notifications will start to show again if user action is needed and the devices reach the deadline, though hopefully, most devices are able to automatically restart overnight when the student isn’t there.

Windows Insiders can now use 37 new emoji characters in the emoji picker as part of Emoji 14.0. Some of the new emoji include “melting face”, “troll”, “coral”, “beans”, “playground slide”, and “mirror ball”. They Updated the mute icon in the taskbar so that the tooltip now gives a hint for the keyboard shortcut (WIN + Alt + K). Fixed an issue that was causing the Start menu to not open consistently with the new touch gesture where you swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
