Microsoft is working on a new update windows 11 According to a TechRadar report, this will help users who are running the latest operating system on older and cheaper hardware. Windows 11 Build 22526 is currently available to members of the Insider Early Access program and comes with a number of enhancements and improvements.
Although most of the new enhancements are somewhat minor, Microsoft is using this new build to try out a new file location indexing system. The software giant hopes that this new system will help users find important files even faster using File Explorer.
The recently released Windows 11 came with several new performance enhancements, yet File Explorer (which is a much-needed feature) works very slowly and is still prone to frequent crashes. One of the most notable problems is the slowness of the search functionality. It seems that this functionality takes a long time to return relevant searches, mostly if you have stored a large number of files in the built-in hard drive.
This new update is expected to help users extract large amounts of files more quickly, which will ultimately improve productivity. Also, it will be of great help to users who are running Windows 11 on cheap and old devices. Budget devices with weak hardware usually load for a long time and performance drops.
Improved file indexing is not the only upgrade that will be released in the upcoming windows 11 update, the report also states that other upgrades are expected to include wideband speech support which will improve the audio quality of voice calls if you are using products like Apple AirPods. This new update is also expected to come with a new “window” mechanism for the popular Alt+Tab functionality.
Meanwhile, Microsoft has activated its Credential Guard service as a default function for all business users. This function protects important data under a layer of virtualization-based security.
Considering the new build of the latest OS is only available to developers, it is unclear when the new features will be introduced to the public. Nevertheless, all these are promising signs for users who are struggling with File Explorer-related issues, especially in lower-end devices.
