Windows 11 makes a small but powerful tweak to the taskbar

Windows 11 has just introduced a new feature in testing that brings a useful improvement to the taskbar, among a few other changes.

The main point of interest here is the work on the taskbar, which consists of an overflow feature present for Windows Insiders (testers) in the latest preview version 25163 (which just hit the Dev Channel).

What this does is bring up a button (with three dots) at the end of the taskbar icons (far right), and if you fill the taskbar with too many apps, any additional programs that are running (or pinned) can be accessed by clicking on these three dots. These excess apps will appear in a small bar just above the taskbar.

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