As Microsoft is preparing to unveil its next-generation Windows system – the Windows 12 next year, the firm also continues to refine and enhance the current Windows 11 before its arrival. In a couple of documents spotted in Windows Settings and Winver, we confirm that the software giant quietly updates Windows 11 23H2 with improved system performance and user-friendly features.

The new 23H2 update would be the second official feature update for Windows 11 and it is said that it won’t be as big as the initial version 23H2 update. According to the American tech goliath, the second Windows 11 23H2 update will be officially released in the fall of this year.

As we all know, Microsoft is already working on Windows 12 which is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2024. Meanwhile, it looks like the firm intends to activate secret functionality using the enablement package switch. This is consistent with Microsoft’s new update strategy, which places a higher priority on feature quality than quantity. Now, let’s take a look at the second Windows 11 23H2 update.

Windows 11 23H2 Update Features

Taskbar ungrouping is one of the most eager features of the Windows 11 23H2 update. Each app window will now be displayed separately on the taskbar with labels thanks to a new feature called the “never combined mode.” Users will have a taskbar that is more organized and user-friendly thanks to this feature, which can be accessed via Settings > Personalization > Taskbar > Taskbar behavior.

The new hover behavior for the search box and search highlight, which attempts to create a more engaging search experience, is another significant improvement. By right-clicking on the taskbar, selecting Taskbar settings, and selecting the preferred search box experience, users can disable the feature or change how it behaves.

Additionally, File Explorer will receive a contemporary redesign in Windows 11 23H2. Users may anticipate a redesigned address bar, an improved search bar, improved touch controls, expanded Fluent Design elements, and integrated Microsoft 365 services.

On the other hand, the New Start menu suggestions that provide useful advice, shortcuts, and details on fresh programs are a notable upgrade. Although this feature tries to simplify user interactions, users can disable it in the Start menu settings if they would rather not view recommended content.

Even though Windows 11 23H2 may not be a sizable update, it promises significant and high-quality enhancements that will probably improve both system momentum and user experience as a whole. Hence, Microsoft keeps improving Windows 11 with an emphasis on taskbar management, search improvement, and interface upgrades ahead of the upcoming Windows 12 next year.
