Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25163 has hit the Early Access channel, testing improvements to the taskbar. Now, when you open a large number of applications, the panel goes into the so-called “overflow mode”, showing a small panel on top.
It is not yet known how many applications need to be disabled to run this mode. It only speaks of a “sufficient number” of programs. At the same time, the interface of the extended taskbar supports the same features that are on the main one. This is the context menu, double-click actions and more. If the number of applications decreases, then the advanced mode is turned off automatically.
It is not yet known how many applications you need to open in order for it to turn on. It probably depends on the screen resolution, aspect ratio, interface scale and other indicators.
Also, this assembly received a proprietary OneDrive service in the Share menu for quickly uploading data to the cloud. Other changes worth noting are minor improvements to the Microsoft Store interface. Now it is more convenient to compare prices for different versions of the same game. And added support for the UDP protocol in private networks.
It is not yet reported when these innovations will appear in the release version of the OS.
