Windows 11 makes a small but powerful tweak to the taskbar

Windows 11 has just introduced a new feature in testing which makes a handy improvement to the taskbar, among some other changes.

The main point of interest here is the work on the taskbar which consists of an overflow facility that’s present for Windows Insiders (testers) in the latest preview build 25163 (which has just arrived in the Dev Channel).

What this does is to bring in a button (featuring three dots) at the end of the taskbar icons (far-right), and if you fill up the taskbar with lots of apps, any additional programs which are running (or pinned) can be accessed by clicking on those three dots. Those excess apps will then pop up in a small bar just above the taskbar.

It’s a bit like the system tray, on the right-hand side of the taskbar, which has that little up-arrow icon you can click to see the rest of its contents.
