Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25163 is now available in the Early Access channel. This builds improvements to the taskbar. When you open many applications, the panel will go into “overflow mode” and display a small panel above.
It is unknown how many programs must be disabled in order to use this mode. This only refers to a “sufficient” number of programs. The extended taskbar interface also supports the same features as the main one. This includes the context menu, double click actions, and many other features. The advanced mode will be disabled automatically if the number of applications falls.
It is still unknown how many apps you will need to open to get the screen to turn on. It will depend on screen resolution, aspect ratio, scale, and other indicators.
This assembly also received a OneDrive service that allows for quick data uploads to the cloud. The Microsoft Store interface has also been updated with minor improvements. It is now easier to compare prices for different versions. Plus, private networks now support the UDP protocol.
These innovations are not yet announced for the OS release.
