Just a month after the release of the first major update for Windows 11, a small but long-awaited new update is now available, bringing one of the most anticipated features since Windows has existed.

While you wait for Windows 12, Microsoft is tweaking Windows 11

A few days ago, on October 14 to be precise, during Microsoft’s annual conference dedicated to innovation, the famous Ignite 2022, the first screenshot of Microsoft’s next big project for the next two years appeared, namely Windows. 12.

If official information did not come out of there, many elements are present on the screen that our colleagues from Windows Central got. First, we think about the new taskbar, removable and transparent, but also a small search bar at the top of the screen and finally the screen In the upper corners of the screen, a series of information inspired by our smartphones, such as the weather, the date, the time, the Wi-Fi or the battery.

But for now, what we are interested in today is the new update for Windows 11 stamped 22621.675 also called “Moment 1” by Microsoft.

Windows 11 Moment 1 significantly improves the user experience

At the time of the big 22H2 update, Microsoft had warned that it would be necessary to regularly rely on patches implemented on a case-by-case basis (to fix bugs or glitches, for example), but also on certain more important updates, the famous “Momentum”.

And while Moment 2 is not expected before the first quarter of 2023, with no further details on its date or content, Moment 1 is already here, just 4 weeks after the launch of Windows 11 22H2.

And if you’ve been looking forward to this update, it finally has a feature that has been conspicuously missing for years, namely thetabs in file explorer. We’ve only had it since this morning, but we can’t live without it. No more third party software like Explorer++, Multi Commander, etc.

The chips are here!!

For the operation, nothing special, it works as in any browser, a small “+” to open a new tab and that’s it.

Among the other novelties that Moment 1 brings, we highlight the presence of a more extensive contextual menu (the famous right click) or better management of applications in the taskbar.

All improvements in Windows 11 Moment 1
