Let’s jump into what’s new and available starting today.
Tabbed File Explorer1: One of our most loved and highly utilized features, File Explorer, is getting better. Windows is always looking for ways to simplify your everyday tasks and make collaborating as effortless as possible. So, we’re releasing Tabs to File Explorer that let you organize your files and switch between your folders with ease. The new Favorites section is the perfect place to pin your most used files. And thanks to the power of OneDrive we’re making it easier for you to see important information like which of your colleagues most recently edited or commented on your file. When sharing content, Windows can also provide a list of contacts you’re likely to share content with and some personalized suggestions based on your Microsoft 365 account. (Microsoft 365 subscription sold separately)
Suggested Actions1: Another way Windows is making your everyday tasks like collaborating with colleagues more efficient is by anticipating your needs and giving you suggestions for actions you may wish to take. For instance, when there are phone numbers or future dates in text, Windows highlights them, making it easy to click and call with Phone Link, Teams or Skype, or click to schedule an appointment, adding an event in your Calendar app and including the person you were communicating with on your invite.
Taskbar Overflow and easy access to Task Manager: Taskbar is getting two highly requested enhancements. First, if you like to pin a larger selection of apps to your taskbar than space allows, Taskbar gives you an entry point to an overflow menu that allows you to view all your overflowed apps in one space. Second, when you right click on the taskbar, in addition to Taskbar Settings, you will also see an option to jump directly into your Task Manager. These improvements have been made in direct response to your feedback and to give you access to what is important with a single click.
Share to more devices: To make sharing files even easier, we have enhanced the Windows Share experience so that you can simply share files with more discoverable devices nearby directly from your desktop, File Explorer, Photos, Snipping Tool, Xbox and other apps.
