Microsoft has announced large-scale upgrades to Windows 11, which Windows Insiders are currently testing. The organisation has made the Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23475 available to the Dev Channel, which features significant enhancements to the File Explorer and the Home page.
Using Microsoft’s WinUI 3. x technology, the File Explorer in Windows 11 will have a contemporary appearance reminiscent of a web browser, with the navigation, address bar, and search bar all located in the same row. The address bar will become more intelligent by identifying local and cloud folders. Modern WinUI updates are also being applied to the Home page.
Native controls for RGB peripherals like keyboards, mice, and monitors are also included in the new build. Downloading any other software to configure RGB lighting is unnecessary because it can be done right in the Windows Settings app.
Meanwhile, building 22631.1835 in the Beta Channel makes one further enhancement and one new feature. Users may now choose whether to use a cellular connection when Wi-Fi connectivity is spotty using a new option. Adding Chinese and Spanish (from Spain and Mexico) native narrators is the enhancement.
Using contemporary, on-device text-to-speech, Narrator users can do more with the Natural Narrator voices, including browsing the web, reading and sending mail, and more.
It is not yet known when these upgrades will be made available to the general public; Windows Insiders are currently evaluating them. However, these updates are anticipated to improve Windows 11’s user interface.
