Windows 11 feature will clean your messy taskbar to let you find any app quickly. Here’s how.
Does your Windows 11 taskbar look a mess? Then this upgrade is for you! Windows 11 is bringing this extremely useful new feature that will keep all your apps better organised. That means you will no longer need to worry about finding that particular app in a hurry that you need the most and that too very quickly. Windows confirmed the new feature in its latest blog, “We’re reintroducing taskbar overflow, with a newly designed experience for Windows 11.”
Currently, Windows 11 and Windows 10 users can only access the recently opened or used tabs in the taskbar in a series. This can be time-consuming as it makes the task difficult to find a specific app, especially when you have too many opened apps. To end the struggle for you, Microsoft is testing a new taskbar overflow feature via the Dev channel under the Windows Insider Program. It will now be easier for you to find the apps that you are looking for, no matter how many apps are flooding your taskbar. It will be possible via a feature that will place the un-fitted apps within a three-dot sub-menu.
Windows 11 Taskbar Overflow features is a time saver
Windows Insider said in a blog, “This taskbar experience has been thoughtfully crafted to offer you a more productive switching and launching experience when space is constrained. Your taskbar will automatically transition into this new overflow state when it has hit its maximum capacity.” It further explained the feature that the overflow menu currently has several features such as supporting pinned apps, jump list, and extended UI. And this overflow menu disappears once you go outside the menu or navigate to an application. Well, you can open it again by clicking on the three dots to access the full list of opened apps in one go.
However, it is worth noting that this feature is being tested in the Insider Program, it may not be available soon to the general public. It may well be that Microsoft introduces this time-saving feature to all the users in the big Windows 11 update this fall.
