Microsoft promised to evolve Windows experience to the next level with Windows 11. But there are many missing Windows 10 features in Windows 11 that users have voiced about. Now, Microsoft is trying to add back useful features to Windows 11 Taskbar and Start.
It was possible in Windows 10 to drag and drop a file on apps icons in Taskbar to open them in the app. Windows 11 removed this feature but users wanted this feature back and it was again one of the most requested feature to be added back to Windows 11. So, Microsoft has decided to bring this feature back in the latest insider Build 22557.
Drag and drop is now supported on the Windows 11 taskbar. Quickly drag and drop files between app windows, by hovering over apps in the taskbar to bring their windows to the foreground. Try attaching a file to an Outlook e-mail by dragging it and hovering over the Outlook icon in the taskbar to bring the window to the foreground. Once in the foreground, drop your file into the e-mail to attach it. You can also customize your taskbar with your favorite apps from Start’s All apps list by dragging and dropping over the taskbar to pin them. You can also drag and drop to the desktop via “Show desktop” at the very right corner of the taskbar.
Similarly Microsoft removed Live Tiles and named groups and folders in Windows 11. Now, in the Build 22557, the ability to create folders in the pinned apps area of Start has been introduced. Microsoft terms this as “the first version of folders” meaning we may see more advanced “creating and managing apps folders feature” in future builds.
Create and curate folders in the pinned apps area of Start
We’ve heard from many of you that you’d like to customize your pins in Start by organizing them into folders, so we’re introducing the first version of folders in this build. Simply drag an app on top of another to create a folder. You can add more apps to a folder, rearrange apps within a folder, and remove apps from a folder. Keep an eye out for further improvements like the ability to name and rename folders in one of our upcoming builds.
