New version of win10 function inventory: improved multitasking makes it easier to use

21h2 has an important improvement on multi task experience. Users can experience multi window and multi task in more ways, especially when they have multiple displays. For now, chrome’s edge browser will follow at least one of its multitasking features.

It is reported that the new multitasking feature of win10 is part of the new design of “snapshot task group”. The new design allows you to drag application windows to the corner of the screen, and then these windows will automatically adjust the size and layout perfectly, which makes it easier for users to operate multiple applications.

We know that win10 always has the function of displaying two windows side by side quickly, but this update is actually a further improvement on this function. For example, the tabs of the edge browser can also be displayed as application windows in the multitasking view, which makes it easier for users to find the pages they need.

Microsoft is currently testing another mysterious multitasking toggle switch, “away from the edge of the screen,” but it doesn’t know how it works.

Virtual desktop

If you have multiple displays, Microsoft is also making your multitasking experience more comfortable.

In the current version of win10, if you have multiple displays, you can only use the same virtual desktop. When you want to equip each screen with a separate virtual desktop, this becomes a problem.

For example, if you open an application such as YouTube in an external monitor, and then switch between virtual desktops, the YouTube window will also be cut away, which will disturb your workflow.

Now Microsoft is testing a new feature that allows you to have a separate virtual desktop for each display.

In other words, the external display can have an independent virtual desktop. If you switch the virtual desktop in the main display, the external display will no longer be affected.

Aero Shake becomes an optional feature

Many people may not have heard of the word Aero Shake. In fact, this is a feature that has existed since win7. As long as you quickly drag a window back and forth with the mouse, other windows will be minimized.

However, this function does not seem to be so popular, it is easy for users to misoperate, so Microsoft is planning to downgrade Aero Shake to an optional function.

The screenshot above shows this point. In win10 21h2, Aero Shake becomes an optional function. Users can decide whether to turn it on in the settings panel.

Other improvements and release dates

In addition to the above mentioned, win10 21h2 will also bring new pop-up menu, fillet elements and other changes.

It is reported that win10 21h2 will be pushed to the majority of users from October to November this year, and the small update of 21h1 will be welcomed in the spring of this year. Let’s look forward to it together.
