The time has arrived for Windows 11 users to prepare to download the latest feature drop for the operating system. After months of testing in the Windows Insider program, Windows 11 "Moment 3" update is ready for its public release on May 24, 2023.
The latest feature update for Windows 11 has no official name (so much for hating silly names, such as "Fall Creators Update"), so enthusiasts call it "Moment 3," according to the leaked story about Microsoft changing its approach to servicing its operating system. The release is not the biggest one we have seen, but it still packs a few excellent changes and new features. Here are the highlights:
- Taskbar and notification improvements: new VPN indicator and a button for copying 2FA codes from notifications.
- Live Kernel Memory Dump in Task Manager.
- Content Adaptive Brightness Control or (CABC) improvements to make your laptop or tablet last longer.
- Multitasking improvements that now let you display more Edge tabs when you press Alt + Tab.
- Changes for one of the oldest methods of taking screenshots. Intriguing!
- Accessibility Improvements to make the OS more convenient for people with physical limitations.
- Multiple fixes and minor changes across the operating system.
