Currently, the latest release is "Windows 11 2022 Update", which already brings up with it several UI updates. Despite the fact that it doesn't include a number of planned features, such as Tabs in File Explorer, you can easily enable them with ViveTool.

And this is the newer version of search that start appearing for some Insiders.

New Search In Windows 11

While the change is nothing major, it makes Windows Search play well with the overall look of Windows 11. Such interface updates make appearance of Windows 11 more consistent.

The Search UI changes are often server-side, so it is hard to predict when exactly you will see it on your PC. Perhaps it will take some time from Microsoft to test it properly and roll out to everyone.

  1. I don’t like new Notepad UWP app because it’s slow. I like classic Notepad win32 app because it’s fast. I’m still using Linux Mint
