Microsoft is gearing up to unveil a significant update for Windows 11, known as 23H2, on September 26, which will introduce exciting new features and enhancements to enhance the user experience. The announcement was made at the ongoing Microsoft Surface event 2023 in New York.
One of the star features of this update is Windows Copilot, an AI-powered assistant. It’s like a helpful friend on your desktop. It allows you to adjust settings, open applications or ask questions. It’s smart and can even use your calendar information to write text messages and find Outlook, The Verge reports.
For those who want to use the pen with a computer, there is a new feature called “Ink Anywhere”. It allows you to write with a pen in any text box in Windows, and the computer turns your handwriting into plain text.
Other exciting changes
File Explorer, where you manage your files, also gets a new look. It’s more modern and easier to use with thumbnails for large files and the latest file suggestions. This update allows it to better blend in with the design of Windows 11.
Microsoft makes it easier, and now you don’t need extra software to open special types of files like RAR and 7-zip. These are often used to compress files, and now Windows 11 can open them without additional software.
Gamers will appreciate the original RGB lighting controls. This dynamic lighting function works with many brands and allows you to control the colorful lights of your devices without additional apps. This is great news for those who love to customize the look of their computer.
Easy transfer and more
Moving to a new computer is easy with the improved Windows Backup application. It will copy your settings and even restore apps from the Microsoft Store. Application tags and taskbar ungrouping are also back.
Finally, Microsoft Paint gets a dark mode. While features like Photoshop-like layers are coming later, this update brings some much-needed changes.
So mark your calendar for September 26th. The 23H2 update of Windows 11 promises to make your computer smoother and more versatile. Whether you’re an AI enthusiast, a gamer, or just someone who loves simple and elegant design, all of which work together to help you do your work more efficiently and faster.
