Windows 11 makes a small but powerful tweak to the taskbar

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

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

What this does is put a button (with three dots) at the end of the taskbar icons (far right) and if you fill the taskbar with a lot of apps, any additional programs that are running (or pinned) can be opened by tapping those three clicking dots. Those redundant apps will then appear in a small bar just above the taskbar.

It’s kind of like the notification area, on the right side of the taskbar, with that little up arrow icon that you can click to see the rest of the content.
