Yesterday, Microsoft released a new Windows 11 preview build with a huge load of new features and capabilities. Windows Insiders are happy to test a new Task Manager, an improved taskbar, Start menu, and File Explorer enhancements.

After taking a brief pause in releasing Windows 11 preview builds, Microsoft is back with an absolutely massive update.

Microsoft has been working on a new Task Manager for Windows 11 for quite a while now.
