Although Windows 11 (*11*) runs vers sa prochaine mise à jour complète des fonctionnalités (version 22H2, nom de code Sun Valley 2), les utilisateurs que (*11*) sont inscrits au program Windows Insider ont un avant-goût of ce that the nouvelle version to offer. 22H2 is the first major update to Windows 11 since its release in late 2021.

Overall, this is a pretty lean update, with some behind-the-scenes improvements and small new features rather than a full overhaul. We're bringing back drag and drop for the taskbar, Windows Spotlight, and a new "Stickers" feature that lets you put awesome stamps on your desktop.

Potentially the most interesting part of the mise à jour is a Windows patch manager remanié, adopting Microsoft's Fluent design system (ouvre dans un nouvel onglet) for an improved function of the utility and a more consistent aspect avec The rest of Windows 11. With certainty the air plus moderne, along with the old super onglets on this delay versus a gauche colonne with the menu Parameters and file explorer, and the time slots on this delay versus a sweep aloft.

These changes would make the tool more touchscreen-friendly as Windows 11 continues to expand its reach across tablets and 2-in-1 laptops. The new task manager also uses Microsoft's new "virtual design hardware," called Mica, which aligns the color scheme of the window. to match your desktop background. There's also new support for dark mode, which is awesome.

The biggest change is undoubtedly the addition of a new "efficiency mode" for individual processes, allowing you to limit the use of system resources by specific programs that might be eating up your CPU or memory. It's potentially very useful for battery efficiency, as it helps deprioritize resource-intensive tasks so your CPU can prioritize the processes it wants.

Analysis: Do I have to register for the WIP?

Well, you could look at that. It's surely no coincidence that the acronym Windows Insider Program (*11*) is commonly used to mean "work in progress", because that's what (*11*) is all about. Granted, I'm running the "development build" of Windows 11, which is significantly less stable than the other builds available to Insiders, but it's a decidedly unfinished iteration of the OS.

Ultimately, the tradeoff in system stability isn't worth accessing minor new additions; at least not for the average user. The new efficiency mode will be a boon for system efficiency min-maxers, but enabling Eco mode in Windows 11 battery settings will be more than enough for most.

To be fair, the Windows Insider Program isn't for everyone. If you're a tech enthusiast or working on software development for Windows systems, this is a great place to start. But after loading it myself to see the new task manager, I can safely say I'm going back to my nice stable 21H2 build, thanks.
