The latest Windows 11 update implemented a redesign of the taskbar. Or have it? Did it come to your laptop?
Microsoft Windows 11 hits laptops and desktop systems in November 2021 with a host of compelling new features for Windows users. Since then, several updates have been rolled out and they have made the experience even better, while removing the original bugs. Notably, the rounded corners are the first noticeable change on Microsoft products. Previously, the company confirmed that rounded corners will be part of all major upcoming designs. However, there is still room for improvement because of the lack of design consistency.
But in the latest Windows 11 Build 25174 available for download in the Development channel, a mysterious new taskbar with rounded corners or edges has been discovered, a report by Windows Latest reveals. It suggests that Microsoft may be testing a new taskbar with rounded corners on both sides.
In addition, the floating taskbar also seems to be part of Microsoft’s next wave of improvements. Here, the floating taskbar shows a small gap between the taskbar and the edges due to the rounded corners of the icons.
Windows 11 to get this new taskbar design?
According to the report, the design of the rounded corners of the taskbar in Windows 11 could be a bug. “Separating the taskbar icons is still not possible. Likewise, Microsoft has confirmed that they will not be updating the taskbar with the ability to change its position,” the report mentioned. .
However, Windows Insider Programs Team Senior Program Manager Brandon LeBlanc confirmed in a tweet that it appears to be a bug rather than an official rollout of the feature. He said, “It looks like a bug. There are several bugs like this that change the user interface in various ways. It’s not something we’re doing any A/B testing for.”
