Microsoft is behind the new build of Windows 11, version 23545. It is being rolled out on the DEV channel of the Windows Insider Program. One of the points of focus concerns the most popular application of the operating system, File Explorer. We also have a few new features here and there.
This new preview has been available for download for several hours. The software giant offers tweaks and improvements. For example, new behaviors around the taskbar search area are being tested. After opening on hover, tooltips are presented. There is also the ability to launch the bing.com page when you click on the highlighted item.
The Nearby Share function is equipped with an option to quickly give a more friendly name to the device. It is also possible to view Teams contacts to send files to them directly using the operating system’s sharing window.

The file manager also benefits from performance improvements that should make it faster to boot. The company explains
We’ve made some additional fixes to help improve File Explorer’s running performance, including fixing a leak that could impact performance over time.
