Windows 11 will be renovated in 2022

Microsoft is finally rolling out the first major update to Windows 11. Aptly named “Windows 11 2022 Update”, the software fixes many early bugs of the first OS release. If you’ve been holding off on upgrading to Windows 11, now might be a good time to hit the Install button. With that in mind, here’s everything you need to know before upgrading. Now let us tell you about the latest update.

  • One of the most noticeable changes in the latest version of Windows 11 is the Start Menu update.
  • Users can now drag apps on top of each other in the Start menu to create folders and pin them anywhere.
  • Live Captions is also getting a big boost and will be used system-wide. You’ll see labels for anything that contains audio at the top of the screen in a floating window when the feature is activated with the Winkey+CTRL+L keyboard shortcut.

  • With the new voice access feature, you can now also control your Windows 11 PC with just your voice. At the top of your screen you’ll see a narration bar that you can use to navigate Windows using your voice.
  • Elsewhere, you’ll notice improvements to snap layouts, gestures for tablet or 2-in-1 owners, and even a new Xbox controller bar.
  • There is a new Do Not Disturb button in the notification panel to silence notifications. You can even create a 30 minute focus session if you don’t want any distractions.

Design and security improvements

  • Microsoft made some small design changes in the Windows 11 2022 Update to improve the overall look of the operating system.
  • Animations and icons look better. Dark mode has also been improved, and the task manager now has a new UI and dark theme.
  • For security reasons, Microsoft is introducing something called Smart App Control with the new update. It is designed to block script attacks or untrusted apps from launching. However, you’ll have to reinstall Windows 11 from scratch if you want this feature.

Future updates

  • File Explorer will get tabs in the coming month. It allows quick access to favorite and recently used files.
  • An overflow menu is coming to the taskbar in October.
  • The Photos app will also get an update next month, with a new photo management interface that includes a gallery, better browsing, and the ability to easily back up photos to OneDrive cloud storage.
  • Microsoft also says it will now ship new Windows 11 features as soon as they are ready. This could mean more frequent monthly updates, but we’ll have to see how that plays out.
  • Tom Warren at The edge does a great job of summarizing the latest Windows 11 features and how they work. Check out his in-depth look at the latest update.

The guy who claims to be “the last man in the floppy disk business” says he still has some big customers, and you’ll be shocked to learn who they are.

  • It’s strange but true that the aviation industry, an industry associated with tremendous technological advances, is one of Tom Persky, founder of floppydisk.com,’s biggest customers.
  • In an interview last week, Persky said, “Imagine it’s 1990 and you’re building a big industrial machine of one kind or another. You’re designing it to last 50 years and you want to use the best technology available.”
  • So it turns out that since probably half the world’s air fleet is over 20 years old, the airline industry still uses floppy disks in some of their avionics equipment.
  • Meanwhile, these high achievers aren’t the only ones still using archaic technology. The medical industry is also a sector that still uses floppy disks.
  • Maybe in the next 20 years they’ll switch to CDs….😅

Have a nice day,
